Default Old Dealership decals

Guy's does anyone know what the old windscreen decal looked like for Houghton Ford back in 1970? I would like to have one made up for my car.
Houghtons went bust back in 06 so no hope of contacting them I'm afraid.
Any help would be great.
Cheers,
Clayton.

Thanks for the replys guys. I had checked out the sites mentioned allready with no success and GCG2503 is was definetly Houghton Ford mate as my Granddad bought the car from them. I wish it was the Laughton mob as it would have made it easy for me.
Cheers Guy's.

I'd love to get a "Mortlock Ford Fremantle" sticker for my XR as it was sold new there back in 1966. Another one missing from the dealer sticker list unfortunately.

Hi guys, I've been a member for a while now but this is my first post. It's a shame that Vintage Perth Dealership stickers are hard to come by. I've been looking for a Lynford Motors sticker 1972 for about 2 years now. After plenty of research I found some old Lynford Motors photos in the state archives from about 1970/71. In the photos you can roughly see that the stickers were the same as the big showroom sign so I made a sticker as close as possible. Anyway, if anyones interested I have access to couple of old stickers. Backshall Ford Fremantle & Geo. Smith & Sons Huntly ( Vic I think ).

Welcome to the forums mate
If you have a hood pic of the decal then Dave Smith at Grafix Unlimited can sort you out
My car was sold new from Muirs Manjimup (WA) and he had that sticker even though no website showed it as available
Email him on grafixunlimited@bigpond.com
He responds v quickly
Otherwise call him on 0438 318 389

Hi George, I sent grafix unlimited a couple of emails about 18 months ago with no reply so gave up with that one. Anyway I'll get some pictures up in the next couple of weeks of my ute rebuild even though it doesn't classify as a rebuild when you compare to the work thats gone into some of the cars on this forum. After checking out the work thats gone into some of these cars I realise mine was too easy. I've also recently stumbled across a gold mine of Ford parts. Mainly P5 LTD ( Landau ), ZH Fairlane & XB parts so when I sift through everything I'll be getting rid of heaps of stuff pretty cheap on here and/or ebay.

I have managed to track down a guy who has the Houghton Motors Dealership Decal. It is still on his 1978 Ford XC GXL which he bought new from Houghton motors in 1978. He posted the picture and I have emailed it to grafixunlimited.com.au today. Should hopefully be able to purchase in the next week or two.

You're a lucky fella, I've been trying to source a rear screen decal for my XW GT sold new in August 1969 by Centenery Ford at Brunswick VIC. The dealership code was 3103, but unfortunately they're no longer running.
I have spent hours searching over the Internet trying to find info on this with no result.
If anyone reading this has an image of the sticker back in the day, I would be so grateful.
Regards, Nick

Unfortunately not,
I've discovered from old newspaper clips on the net, they traded under the name "Centenary Motors pty ltd" Brunswick.
Surely there's a dust covered car sitting in a shed somewhere in Australia which has this sticker attached to a rear screen!! Anyone?
