The 1940 Pontiacs used a simple round Indian head chrome emblem piece on the 25 and 26 models (six cylinder cars). The 28 and 29 models have a longer, fancier one (eight cylinder cars).

My friend has a 28 model and rather than try to hand paint the red on his newly chromed emblem, asked me if I could make a piece of artwork his neighbor with a sign adhesive vinyl cutting machine could use.

It took some work trying to "capture" the Indian head outline from the shiny chrome with a scanner, so I finally did a tracing off the emblem that I could then scan in and play with.

I thought someone else might be able to use this too. Just take it to a good sign shop with the computer vinyl cutting equipment. Take your actual emblem and make sure the shop people are willing to work with you if it takes them some tweaking.

Check the results below and also see the jpg file you can use, as well as a pdf I've attached. Note that I also added some lines for the shop to fill with red that you can then use for the vertical stripes. There are thicker ones at the top, and thinner ones at the bottom.
