When my competition sold out to Rural-Metro, I made up a collage of pictures with several of their rigs centered around a big shot of their building. I also had it professionally matted and framed. Needless to say they were very appreciative of my efforts. I'm sure your boss will be pleased with his name plates mounted on a plaque.

Default not just for funeral coaches

That type of nameplate was also used on first call vehicles, flower delivery cars, etc., also. My Dad used a Chevrolet panel delivery truck with those nice chrome wreathes on the rear panels, and attached the nameplates just behind the front doors, just above the window sill line............

Mike,

When I initially saw your post, my memory banks went to work; I was sure I'd seen WEAVER nameplates like that before, and on a silver Eureka Concours.

Sure enough... This appears to be a 1987 Concours landaulet bearing WEAVER exterior nameplates.

I'm sorry it has taken me so long to dig these out of my archives. I'll keep looking for the 3/4 front view.

Hope this might have some significance for the research you are doing on coaches owned by your firm, if this is indeed the same WEAVER.

I'm pretty sure I got this photo from my friend and fellow professional car photographer, Kent Roduck, many years ago.
