    Any Corvette guys out there that happen to know where or who the engine rating emblems are made at or by who?

    I've had this one on my console shift plate just below the cubby hole area below the radio for years and it fits perfect and looks factory, but of course it isn't. It doesn't have the correct horsepower rating and wanted to find out of a few specials may be made with 360 horsepower instead of 370 horsepower.
    I don't have any Corvette forum accounts or would post there.

    Maybe I'll contact Paragon or Mid-America or suggestions to find out if possible.

    Corvette and Z28 Camaro got the same basic engine in 1970. In the Corvette it was rated at 370hp while on the Camaro, it was rated at 360hp. The Corvette had a better flowing exhaust system, so the HP ratings make sense.

    Right. The engines also both had the crossed flag emblem on the valve cover which kind of brings in the emblem on the console tag. Sent an email to Paragon but most resellers guard there sources pretty closely.

    Would anyone else be interested in something like this? The nice thing is it easily pulls off later leaving no marks.

    Funny how the better exhaust didn't seem to make as much difference in 71?
    I like the blank plate, but it is the 72 and later design that doesn't show the torque. Do they have one for the 71 earliers?
