1960 fender ornament placement

Does anyone know where the correct placement for the front fender ornaments on a 1960 Impala is? I bought some nos ornaments but don't
know where they belong. Thank-you Bob

The info should be in the Fisher Body manual. I don't have the 1960 one, though.

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

Yes I have to agree with you as a quick search turns up every manual except the Fisher Body Repair manual.

This one site has every manual you will need in the future except the Fisher Body book.

I'll check my 65 manuals to see what book the info is in. Anyone else have a 60 Shop Manual they can check?

Do you think the 1960 full size Chevrolet assembly manual would have the fender ornament placement in it?

No because on the assembly line the workers used had prestamped holes in the fender. The Fisher Body Repair manual was for the body shop tech who had to fix wrecked cars with blank generic fenders. So they used a hand drill to bore the holes using the dimensions laided out in the manual. The Fisher body has all of the dimensions for attaching trim, or decals. It is also good for selecting the right part for the car to match what was supposed to be installed according to the trim tag (custom, deluxe, or standard interior parts for example are all identified by a line drawing and shown where they go).
