Sorry for the lack of picture on the first post. The story on the ebay listing is, the American emblem was not good enough for export due to the pointy ends. So pedestrian safety they closed the wreath! I am skeptical.

never seen this emblem on euro-specs Fleetwoods/STS/SLS. At least not on german, swiss or nordic (sweden, finland) countries versions.

I just read a story about Chevys inported into Japan and the bowtie on the grill had to be redesigned with rounded corners...I do not remember what Chev was sent there...Maybe a van of some kind or a truck...
