Yes Joe, I notice the badge! I always thought this would have been a nicer place for the 1960 scare emblem. The 60 Furys side is already pretty busy, so I put one GC badge on mine on the deck lid too, and that way the competition can look at it a lot better and longer

As you might know, I own a similar 61 with a GC, but not as nice. Bare-bones car with manual steering and only options a GC and Torqueflite. I really love the dash pic^, is looks kinda mythical!

As for the emblem placement on your BTB, I do believe these were prepped by a special team from the factory with all the components. Look at the inner fender cutouts, they do not appear to be OE/factory either.

Does anybody repop the GCP emblem? I heard that there was a sonoramic repop, but I have only been able to find these https://www.ebay.com/itm/1960-Plymouth-Sonoramic-D500-Fury-Polara-Be...

These lack the car-show "in-factor" and exclusiveness of the Sonoramics and D500s so I do not believe they are reproduced.

Sid --
The BTB doesn't have the removable fender well access panels as it not only is an early production car, but may well have been a factory mule when it came down the line at the St. Louis plant. In addition to not having the panels and the weird emblem placement, it also has the early threaded ball-and-socket carb linkage rather than the later slotted rods. But the production records show it really was a ram car at the start even if it is an anomaly which I think makes it all the more interesting.

PS, The second photo from the top looks like Colorado, perhaps Silverton

Joe, yes, early production ram cars didn't have the access panels, but I tought it was only your original (1rst) BTB that didn't have them?

The 1rst and 2nd photo were taken in Colorado. The 1rst is Loveland pass.

The house at the top of the street identifies it as Silverton, but it's not the main street.
