Default V8 emblem on '36 Ford question

Saw this online is the V8 emblem on the grille aftermarket or homemade?

Looks like someone's handiwork. Some 1937 models had a similar V8 grille emblem but on a much smaller scale

Looks like an afterthought to detract your eye from the bent grille.

Is that the "Gar Wood" of speedboat and dump truck fame?

I was incorrect, they were made by Franklin.

Iíve owned a few they are very rare and also very fragile die castings
