I would have to agree with Ed. I've been around a lot of tri fives and
never seen anything like this.
There may be one exception though and that would be the El Morocco.
According to www.57heaven.com, the Chevrolet "El Morocco" was only made
by Chevrolet for two years, 1956 and 1957. In 1957 they made
convertibles, two door hardtops, and four door hardtops. They were sold
and warranted by Chevrolet, although the modifications were actually
made by Allender & Co. in Detroit, Michigan. The cars were then taken to
the dealers for sale. They were U.S. cars but were not regular
production-line cars. The site info says there were 187 produced for
The pictures are only of the 57 models and I didn't see any emblems
similar to the one mentioned earlier, however, I have yet to see a
picture of a 56. It may be possible that the emblem in question was on
a '56 but who knows?
