I am looking for both the "Superior" script and the "Cadillac" script that would have been on a 1959 Cadillac. They don't have to be perfect.

Interior, or exterior?

I believe the "Cadillac" script is from a '49 Cadillac while the "Superior" script is from Brady's '59.

Did '59 have a Cadillac script? It may be a plastic insert that goes into one of the crests

There isn't one on Brady's '59.

There are Fleetwood, Coupe deVille and Sedan deVille scripts. My '60 limos only have a Fleetwood script on the trunks.

The Cadillac script is not a 1949, its a 1957. As for the script on a 59, there really is not one, there is a badge style with name on the front fender under the trim between the door and wheel well. Bradys does have this.

These are exactly what I am looking for.

I don't think that "Cadillac" script is from a 1957. The Cadillac Database identifies this one as from a 1948, and it is similar to the one I posted.


I took the picture of the "Superior" script of Brady's 1959. That car does not have a "Cadillac" script on it that I could locate.

Look at the shape of the C in relation to the A next to it. The letter style is not the same. I got 1957 from Mc Veys Cadillac, which sells original and reproduction parts. Also I have owned two 1949 Cadillacs, which uses the same script from 1948-52, and they do not look like the first one you posted, similar kind of, but not the same.
A closer look and you will easily the difference in the letters between the pic you first posted (1957) and the second you posted which are 48-52.

Also, if you read my post I said 59s do not have a Cadillac script, but a small badge style on the front fender below the trim between the wheel and door.

I have a mixed up bag here some say 60 special some fleet wood and some Cadillac. I was guessing that the Cadillac one would be correct for the Commercial chassis.
