Default HEADS UP A New V-6 Emblem

I was searching for a good picture of our V-6 emblem for a custom tire cover I want for my in the bed spare and on Google I found this for sale on eBay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/3911031...chn=ps&lpid=82

I've never seen a plain V-6 Oval Emblem, We've seen this on the Magnum Series, but never plain. Someone might want to scoop this up for our collection

I don't disagree but the important fact is, is it an actual correct emblem?

That's the same emblem I put on my 67 pickup. I heard of someone selling a v6 and transmission from a large B-series truck. The story is the truck was an old semi used on a dock on the West coast and later shipped up to ND and converted to a grain truck. Anyway, by the time I got to the truck, the PO already stripped the entire cab off and threw in a scrap pile, while leaving angina in the frame - he was making a trailer out of the box. It didn't run, but for almost nothing he loaded the whole thing in my pickup (same pickup it was going in) and let me roam through the scrap pile where I found these hood emblems. I hadn't seen them before either.
So, that's where mine came from - a large truck, I think was a 65 5000 series.

I just checked the part numbers for the two I have; one with and without the "Magnum" and thunderbolt. The part numbers are the same 2484679 for both.

There is another eBay listing for the identical Magnum version with a different part number as well 2483671?! Listed as being for a 66.

http://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/331714928274

Maybe the plain version is also a magnum version and the "Magnum" and Thunderbolts added in the later years with a different part numer(?); Just a guess.

The must have had different emblems for 305/351C trucks and the Magnums. Since it looks like the back surface of these emblems are flat, my guess these are for '66 and newer E/H/J or Steel Tilts.

Bob is absolutely correct but after 67 these emblems were no longer used

Still looking for the elusive 'V6 Magnum Power' '67-'68 pickup truck fender emblem.
