RBABY - you can obtain these from:http://www.chrisparts.com/nameplates.htm They are not cheap and you'll have to paint them. I wanted to maintain the original gold color and used Krylon gold paint and then clear coated. DO NOT go overboard with the clear coat! A couple of coats is fine. Also, use some sealant on the screws when you replace them and DO NOT over-tighten the screws. It is possible to crack them if you over-tighten the screws. The originals had a filler inside to help with this problem, these do not. If you have a 460/500/501 Connie you should visit and post to the Constellation forum. Lots of info there.
