BERNARD french truck

BERNARD calandre radiator emblem badge vintage camion
BERNARD / France  truck radiator emblem
BERNARD was a very famous truck in France, producing heavy duty trucks from 1929 to 1962.
They always had this lovely emblem on the front showing a model. Only in 1936 there was another emblem.
 No, her name is not Eleanor V. Thornton...          It is a man !
You can read on the emblem: LE COEUR ET LES MUSCLES DE L´ATHLETE COMPLET.
That means: The body and the muscles from a perfect athlete.
I only know this two emblem colors: orange and light green.

Dimensions 5.6 cm x 8.5 cm
Year1929 - 1962
Estimate
