WTB: Vintage Overseas Delivery window STICKER, or even just a scan/photo

It's unlikely anyone has one of these NOS. A really good hi-rez close-up photo or a high-resolution scan would work for me.<p>These were circular stickers that Volvo put on the car window if a buyer in the US came to Sweden. Blue and gold design. The text on the sticker reads:<p>SPECIAL DELIVERY<br>TOURIST & DIPLOMAT SALES<p>with the VOLVO logo in the center against a background earth globe graphic.<p>Thanks.<p><br><i>Modified by Bigscreenbob at 3:31 PM 8-19-2009</i><BR><BR>

Re: WTB: Vintage Overseas Delivery window STICKER, or even just a scan/photo (Bigscreenbob)

Hi Bigscreenbob,<p>There was a similar discussion on Turbobricks a few months ago:<br><A HREF="http://forums.turbobricks.com/showthread.php?t=169359&highlight=tourist+sticker" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.turbobricks.com/...icker</A> <p>If you are not able to find one to purchase (at a pick-n-pull, etc.), you may want to ask Dave Barton (SCVCOA President and maker of the prancing moose decals) if he would still be interested in reproducing one (he replied in the above topic).<p>Here is a photo of a decal I found on the rear side window of a 760 GLE at my local pick-n-pull. <br>[Let me know if the resolution is not high enough to reproduce the decal-- I'm still a photo newb, so any photo tips are welcome.]<p><IMG SRC="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3494/3841502785_f3f1bb501f.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>Link to large size: <A HREF="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3494/3841502785_f3f1bb501f_b.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://farm4.static.flickr.com...b.jpg</A> <p>If you PM me with your e-mail address, I can send you the original jpg (1932 x 1913; 404kb).<p>Hope that helps,<br>volvie!<br>

Re: WTB: Vintage Overseas Delivery window STICKER, or even just a scan/photo (volvie!)

Thank you, Volvie! I've just sent you a PM.<p>I assume these were stickers that went on the OUTSIDE of the window, and not on the inside like some stickers, correct?<p>Which window did Volvo put these stickers on, and were they always in a particular spot (lower left corner) on that window? <p>I've never seen one of these in person and the only photos I've seen are not wide enough to tell me which window it was on and what spot.

Hi Bigscreenbob,<p>The sticker is applied to the inside of the window.<br>Here is a picture of what the back of the sticker (inside window view) looks like:<br><IMG SRC="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2518/3843330943_bae2b9f184.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>I'm not sure if there is a set location for the sticker as the sticker in the 240 (in the Turbobricks topic) was in the back window, whereas the decal was in the rear passenger triangle window in the 760 GLE at the pick-n-pull (blue arrow in the picture below):<br><IMG SRC="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3473/3843331179_0a304ed516.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>Picture of actual window:<br><IMG SRC="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2663/3844119664_fe3fd73b81.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br>(the other decal is a Volvo Alarm warning)<p>I'll be sending you an e-mail shortly...<p>Take care,<br>Elizabeth
