Lou -

The stickers (originals) posted are 1958 designs. The pre-1958's had the full outer circle ones as posted in post 1. If someone can make individual letter ones ( not with a clear backing) I would be very interested. I bought the ones shown a number of years ago (Jim Osborne used to make them) but dislike the clear vinyl attaching the letters. I would want a clear vinyl with individual dry transfers that would adhere separately that could then be clear coated over.

I attached pictures from the 1957 and 1958 Cadillac Shop Manuals. The 1957 clearly has the circular lettering and the 1958 has the two part lettering. Also the shape of the housing top is quite different:

Thanks John. A lot of those service manual pics are carry over pics from years past. I will check it out regardless.

Yet another low mileage 1956 Cadillac with the same AC logo sticker. Best picture yet. I'm convinced now more than ever that this sticker was correct for 56's

Looks like you are correct. So they changed it in 1957 and came back to it in 1958.

Another 56 with the AC logo on the oil filter. This car has 29k miles on it.

I have three 56 oil filter assys.  The double AC logo is what is on one of the lids of one of my spares.  Guess I will be cleaning it and putting on my car.
Thanks,  Larry

Well, it took me three years but I finally have the correct oil filter stickers on my oil filter. I feel much better now  ;D

I have extra sets if anyone wants the correct stickers for there 1956. Send me a message. $7.50 plus postage. Exactly what i paid for them.

PS, expect those not in the know to question the authenticity of these stickers. If you plan on being judged at a CLC event. Print this thread out as proof that the stickers are indeed correct.
