1957 CADILLAC DAGMARS

1957 CADILLAC DAGMARS

Ideal gift for US car fanatics

The 1957 CADILLAC DAGMARS Tin sign is one of several Cadillac signs we stock. Dagmar refers to the car’s bumpers – it’s a slang term for chrome conical shaped styling elements which began to appear on the front bumper/grille assemblies of certain American automobiles following World War II. They reached their peak in the mid-1950s. The term is derived from the notable physical attributes of Dagmar, a buxom early 1950s television personality known for low-cut gowns and pronounced conical bra cups. She was amused by the tribute. She used the stage name Dagmar (born Virginia Ruth Egnor, November 29, 1921 – October 9, 2001) and was an American actress, model, and television personality of the 1950s. As a statuesque, busty blonde, she became one of the first major female stars of television, receiving much press coverage during that decade.

The bottom script of the sign reads – The 1957 Cadillac struts “Dagmars”. Virginia Rush Egnor was a busty blonde who went by the name Dagmar on NBC’s 1950 Late-night talk show ‘Broadway Open House’. During the same period, Cadillacs began sprouting a pair of protrusions from their front bumpers and since the cars had long been connected to celebrities, the comparison of the bumper feature and Dagmar’s chest was a natural

Novelty Tin signs are great for adding a touch of fun or nostalgia and there are heaps of them available with everything from Classic Muscle cars to Hollywood legends.

After Durant's second ousting in 1919, Alfred Sloan, with his maxim "a car for every purse and purpose," would pick the Chevrolet brand to become the volume leader in the General Motors family, selling mainstream vehicles to compete with Henry Ford's Model T in 1919 and overtaking Ford as the best-selling car in the United States by 1929.

  • CADILLAC LOGO ON YELLOW

    The CADILLAC LOGO ON YELLOW plate is of course about the Cadillac , formally the Cadillac Motor Car Division, which now is a division of the U.S.-based General Motors (GM) that markets luxury vehicles worldwide. Its primary markets are the United States, Canada, and China, but Cadillac-branded vehicles are distributed in 34 additional markets worldwide. Historically, Cadillac automobiles have always held a place at the top of the luxury field within the United States. In 2016, Cadillac's U.S. sales were 170,006 vehicles. Cadillac is among the oldest automobile brands in the world, second in America only to fellow GM marque Buick. The firm was founded from the remnants of the Henry Ford Company in 1902. It was named after Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, who founded Detroit, Michigan. The Cadillac crest is based on his coat of arms. By the time General Motors purchased the company in 1909, Cadillac had already established itself as one of America's premier luxury carmakers. The complete interchangeability of its precision parts had allowed it to lay the foundation for the modern mass production of automobiles. It was at the forefront of technological advances, introducing full electrical systems, the clashless manual transmission and the steel roof. The brand developed three engines, with its V8 setting the standard for the American automotive industry. Cadillac was the first American car to win the Royal Automobile Club of England's Dewar Trophy by successfully demonstrating the interchangeability of its component parts during a reliability test in 1908; this spawned the firm's slogan "Standard of the World". It won the trophy again in 1912 for incorporating electric starting and lighting in a production automobile. This very collectable older plate comes standard as lightly embossed and made from high quality aluminium. Artwork is applied by a dye sublimation process with a lovely gloss finish. They measure 30 x 15 cm, exactly the same as other US made novelty number plates; even the mounting holes are in exactly the same positions, so they can easily be hung on display indoors or outdoors.
