Default Baldwin License Plate Frame

Does anyone have a vintage photo of a Baldwin license plate frame? I've seen the repros on Ebay, but not sure how they compare with originals.

I don't recall seeing a Baldwin Auto license plate frame
not all the dealers used them

I looked in a box of Motion stuff where I have some old NY plates and frames

Found a Baldwin NY Conway Motors frame

The SK Speed frame was on my 86 Motion Monte Carlo when I got the car

I do not believe Baldwin used a frame, at least in the Motion years. They used a pot metal emblem in the early 60s and switched to a Mylar/black sticker later on.

Conway Motors was a Chrysler Plymouth dealer just east of Motion that was famous for triggering the New York State Lemon Law. An unsatisfied customer stood on the roof of his car out front for months hold a big sign that said “Conway Sold me a Lemon” eventually someone took notice

Makes sense why I haven't seen an original. Thanks for the replies.

I’v never seen a Baldwin Chevy frame, but Mark Hassett’s 68 has a cool metal “Motion” frame on it I’ve never seen anywhere else.

I didn't see any Motion license plate frames in the old original photos

The 1967 Camaro Motion Performance drag car had a cool looking MOTION license plate on the back.

I don't know if that plate was sold by Motion or just used on that car
