  • Anyone in the tractor trailer business?

    Ounce upon a time there was a trailer company called Brown. They had chrome plated plaques on the front that said Brown in script. Im looking for one, two, or three of these plaques. I had one on my head ache rack that got stolen. The plaque was something my grandfather acquired and passed down to me. Yes its my last name and Id like to have some for my boys.

    If you are on Facebook there are many trucker pages, probably have better chances finding something there.

          That’s a good price. Most have sold for much more.

        I used to pull a 42’ Brown reefer back in the ‘70’s.

        Never seen a chromed one. They were cast aluminum, and usually painted.

            Mothers Cream will give aluminum a chromed look finish. Gone through tubs of that stuff.

          Interesting, I'd never seen them before. I'm sorry to hear some dillweed felt they needed it more than you. Some people just suck.

              Not gonna find an original chromed. Many were just polished.

                Ah eBay...The marketplace for everything. Nice plaque. Love the lettering. My father-in-law had a machine shop back in the day and he built a lot of custom winches for commercial fishing boats up on the coast of Maine. I had a nameplate designed using similar lettering that said Doak Built. Riveted one on every one that went out the door. I hope karma bites the a**hole that stole your plaque right where is hurts the most and at the worse time. Humans can really suck!
