ARNOLT / USA


Of course this is not a prewar emblem. But it ist nice and rare as the car. ARNOLT sold for four different manufacturer´s cars with BERTONE bodies during the period 1953 to 1968.
You see the Pegasus, a winged horse flying through th letter A.
ARNOLT built sport cars and started with a ARNOLT - MG.
Later they tried to sell ARNOLT ASTONS with an ASTON MARTIN engine. But it was stopped by ASTON MARTIN. Nevertheless there was at least one car with the ARNOLT ASTON MARTIN badge as shown on this picture:

Because of its rarity there are reproductions. As always please look at the backside.
Here you see two originals

The repro has a flat backside.
