I Hope I'm not the only one but I have been doing a little investigating and found some interesting facts.

In 1950 Ford debuted with a new red, white and blue heraldic crest that according to the company was “derived by Ford stylists from an authentic coat of arms which dates back to 18th century England.”

what is the meaning of the animals,colors and symbols on the crest?

The Lions: denotes dauntless courage

Silver or (argent): peace and sincerity

Red: warrior or military strength and magnanimity

Blue: truth and loyalty

Black: constancy or grief

Sphere: geographical or scientific reference

Chevron: it is used to almost reach the very top of the shield and then more nearly attained the 1/3 of the surface of the shield that was allotted to it by the guidelines of heraldry.

As Paul Harvey use to say,"and now you know the rest of the story"
