Arrow 28 French Model A Ford Badge

I mostly lurk on the early V8 sections but thought I would share what I found at a swap meet last weekend here in France . Looks like a '28 emblem because of the step at the edge.Pretty cool as it says "imported" "from the United States of America".

Very cool. My wife graduated with a major in French and she lived in Dijon for a while. She would appreciate that.

That 3 day swap meet was in Lyon.Huge (for here)and all indoors.Maybe 400 parts vendors + 100 yrs of Citroen displays along with Peugeot ,Delage,Porsche clubs etc.A few friends here have them in their collections. A collector in the UK talked me out of it.I have seen reproductions here.

The Dealer '32 book shows French made headlamps & horn. These are also shown in "The 1932 Ford Book.
Great find.
