If one looks at the 1956 Cadillac Service Manual on page 2-1 Lubrication, there is a small photo on the bottom right of the page that shows the canister with the circular decal as your picture #1 shows. I am going with that being correct as it's in the official Cadillac manual. I have JUST received the deluxe decal kit from McVey today and it has the circular white ring decal in it, not the AC decal. Based on a number of folks recommendations, I went with McVey for the decal set and have always found them very knowledgeable and "correct" in other areas as well. I'm trusting them on the decals now, too.

Mine is a 1958. I was showing the near completion of my individual letters I had custom made.

I believe Lou has confirmed the 1956 used the same format; the 1957 was an odd year using what you got from McVees. I know mine is correct for 1958 as my dad bought my car brand new.

@carguyblack Give this thread a read from the first post. You will see that 56 used a different sticker. Also in the McVeys kit, the owner ID card is incorrect. They based the ID card off of a 1949 card and just went with it. 54-55 cards are one type and 56 is another.

Re-did the cover. Letters were too close to the center nut before:
