Default Dick Harrell mag wheels and other parts questions

My understanding was that Dick Harrell was a Superior mag dealer as well as Kelsey Hays. Did he ever use Fenton aluminum 5 spoke mag wheels that anyone is aware of? I have seen photos of at least 1 68 Chevelle and it used the 5 spoke aluminum wheels but cannot make out who's wheels they are.

Another question, are any Dick Harrell cars known that used the metal DH crest emblem under the hood instead of the black and chrome decal?

Lastly, what type of traction control bars were used on the Camaros? Does anyone have photos of them, specifically 67/68?

in 1968 a lot of the Harrell cars had the Cragar SS wheel but the 68 Chevelle looks like maybe a Fenton wheel ?

The 1970 Harrell Monte Carlo used the crest emblem on the outside not sure about under the hood

The 1967 Yenko/Harrell Camaros used a traction bar that was made from a stock spring plate with flat steel plate stock and spring clamps

I believe the 5 spoke wheels You are asking about on the Chevelles were Appliance with a center cap having AP? Harrell would basically install whatever aftermarket option the customer desired, but believe that he did use some of the above mentioned on the Chevelles? Ray
