    number three looks like a mid 30's dodge horn button (don't have anything to scale it to, but I have a picture of a steering wheel with a horn button that looks like that from a 1936 dodge truck)

    I don't know where they are from, but I like that Dodge thing,

    the space car in the ford item looks like something "fred the fiend" ((??)) would do in the friday art show.

    About the first one: the futuristic car is the same as the garnish molding trim on a '49-50 Ford, but the surrounding button is from somewhere else -- never seen it before.

  9. The futuristic Ford car is, as 50 Fraud says, from the door garnish molding of a 50 Ford.

    It looks to have been carefully cut out, placed over the V looking whatever it is and the whole schmear placed into a gutted 49-50 Ford clock bezel.

    It's possible it is a clock "delete" cover, but doesn't look quite right for that.
    I believe those were simply gray plastic.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Fwiw - a gutted clock bezel holds S-W 2 5/8" instruments quite well.
    Takes just a touch of filing.

    Here's a pic - circa winter of 1956 - with a S-W vacuum gauge in a clock bezel.

    I'm saying that the first one is a '49-50 Ford clock delete plate. I have a hard time believing that it's home made, and if the car was cut out of a garnish moulding it'd be way too long to fit inside the clock bezel.
     
  11. The second one looks like a '55 pontiac horn button with the horn ring cut off...
