Kinda cool.
May not actually be all that old.
A friend of my Mother has a sewing machine that can make patches of any design that you scan in.

Mel, you could make a little bit of $$ by reproducing these.

Is anyone here a bidder on this item? I am thinking about bidding, but IF someone here is in the auction, I will stay out.

When I bought a pair of Fitch Sprints back in 1979 I got a bunch of extra parts. Included in the stash was about a dozen of these patches. Since the seller was the former Parts Manager at the Sprint Works I think they were selling these patches back in the day.

We have a lady that does all our Alee Shriners Hillbilly patches, Shirts Hats. She has a computerized machine that can whip these small patches out in a few minutes. All she needs is a jpg of the design and what you want it put on.

I was thinking of using the 66 Coupe for the design to get a couple hats made for me.

You attach it to a bracket that bolts to a bumper is the common way. Sorry, no Corvair as an example!

The CORSA grill badge can be mounted to the front or rear air inlet/outlet grills at the base of the windshield or backlite.

In the early days of CORSA there was a nice
merchandising effort by the club. Among
the pieces offered were belt buckles/
jacket patches/tie tack/decals/letterhead
stationary/cut-away drawings and grill
badges. Normally these were mounted to
front/rear bumpers with a small bracket.

Oh, I forgot a yearly updated roster and
binders to keep the COMMUNIQUE stored
nicely forever.

As time passed some local clubs took a
little of the merchandise/accessories
away from CORSA so the local club could
profit from the sales.

I wonder how many of us still have the
majority of what I mention above?

Darn it, stopped too soon: the Sprint
jacket patch was offered by SOLAR in
Wisc and I am pretty sure Clarks also
carried them back then. I will look
in old Clarks catalog when I have a
chance. Also IECO? I will look at
that old catalog too.
