Missing Information Plate from a 1972 Dino 246Gt USA Model

I am looking for the "Vehicle Emission Control Information Plate" that is located on the driver's side drip tray that is attached to the engine compartment lid on a USA Model 1972 Dino 246GT directly under the openings in the lid. Does any company reproduce this plate? Here is a photo of the plate from a 1974 Dino GTS. I need a plate for a 1972 Dino GT USA Model.
Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. It'll bring me one step closer to getting my Dino back on the road again.

If you could provide a sample to me, we could probably reproduce one with our laser marking machine.

Sorry, I do not have a sample to provide for the reproduction. If I can borrow one, I will contact you. Thank you for your suggestion.

Unfortunately, they only have the Vehicle Emission Control Information labels for 1980 to 1989 USA Ferrari Models. And I believe those labels are decals whereas the Dino is a metal plate that is riveted to the engine lid drip tray. I'll see if Black Bart has the metal plate for my Dino. Thanks for the info Scott.

I looked at Black Bart's website under Ferrari and they only carry Ferrari Emblems and Ferrari Badges. I might have to hope I can find a used one.

Thanks for the info. I checked out the auction, but, they wanted $950.00 for a used 1972 USA Dino 246. It's the exact plate that I need, however, it was way overpriced. I guess I can live without it for now. It is a supply and demand market, so, they can sell it for whatever the market is willing to pay for it. So, I'll keep hunting for one that I can afford.

Vehicle Emission Control Information Plate Found

I am happy to report that I was able to find a source that has reproduced the Information Plate that I had lost after my Dino was involved in an accident. I attached a phot of the reproduction Information Plate. In my opinion, I think that it is a very accurate reproduction of the original plate. His attention to detail is beyond anything I could have hoped to find.
