if you're interested, shave the emblem off the rear lift gate as well - I'll bring you better one - the chome trunk emblem from Monogram's '55 Chevy Badman. let me know.
- or add the V below the molded in emblem.
Good to see your progress on this - you're building the model I want to build.
Chevy had two styles of emblems for 1955, 1956, and 1957 passenger cars - front and rear
The 6 cylinder cars had a large crest - about 14" long
The V-8 cars had a smaller crest above a large V
The body you have has the smaller 8 cylinder crest without the V - probably to make it look more like a standard 6 cylinder car with the 235 six which would be common in a stock sedan delivery.
