Default DANA LICENCE PLATE FRAME

There is currently a licence plate frame on ebay.
Although acknowledged as a reproduction it looks nothing like the ones I have seen.
Does anyone know if it approximates any of the real ones and which year ???
Hope the link worked if not please check the auction under Dana Chevrolet. I think this is only the 2nd item for Dana I have seen on ebay in many years,

Someone posted an Authentic picture of a Real Dana Chevrolet license plate frame not to long ago.It was either from a Road test article in a magazine,or from someones actual car...I believe it was from an actual car found now that I think about it.I remember it was similar to that one on Ebay with ~DANA~ cast into the bottom,and SOUTHGATE on top.The Lettering was in White.Both with a Red Background.The Chrome frame was the same used one in that auction now,as they are still available today.They are General frames cast by a few different manufacturers:Robert W. Brown Co.,& Auto License Frames,both in California.That one on Ebay has the lettering lazer cut into Plastic Laminate.

Thanks for that. Not only is the seller, selling less than close repros but has decided to turn Dick Guldstrand into a "engine builder" as well. Guess the distance from the Traco shop must have been too far for Dana to travel.
Might as well stuff Chevy racing history while making a buck. (Bondurant was Peyton Cramer's shoe of choice until he flipped his Can Am car )
I love ebay.

Someone paid $89.88 for this One reproduction Frame.
I Suspect we will Start seeing More Famous Dealership names being offered because of this.

Yeah saw it myself, even if it was a correct Repo that's not cheap. Very careful description. He uses the word "detail" but not in relation to the plate. Never says it's a accurate reproduction, just that it is essential to complete the resto of your true Dana.

Wonder if there will now be people running round telling others that this is a "true " repo plate frame.
Next it will be this is a "true" plate frame (forget the repro)
I think the hobby is getting harder. It used to be a challenge to find the information, now the biggest challenge is to sort the facts from the garbage, with the garbage growing all the time.

I am new to the discussion board, but contacted Rob four years ago about my car. I have a sunfire yellow 67 435 horse Corvette coupe Dana apparently kept for their personal use and sold as a "new" used car in 1970. I also have a 67 GT500 and recently found out that Dana was also an authorized Shelby dealership; a friend of mine has a 66 GT 350 that is an original Dana car!

The Corvette's invoice shows it was delivered to Guardian Chevrolet Brea CA. Dana (Mr. G. W. Pickens) issued the Protect-O-Plate in April of 67. The owner listed on the Protect-O-Plate explained he actually purchased the car in 1970, which coincided with the handwritten date on the back cover.

The Sting Ray is equipped with California smog, close ratio four speed, 370 rear gear, N11 exhaust, F41 suspension, redline tires, power disk brakes, am/fm, power windows and tinted glass (See Pix). It is a well documented 435 horse car with a complete owner history and its original window sticker, tank sheet, owners manual and Protect-O-Plate. The first owner also told me he replaced the original 427 with an L88!

The car still has its original transmission and differential, and I went to great pains to assemble a part number/date code tri power 427 to look like it was never out of the car. The Corvette has been re-painted, but the undercarriage is unrestored and the interior is original except for the carpet.
