    Description
    Fargo truck globe mascot. The Fargo logo was a representation of the globe from the beginning. (Fargo was originally Chrysler's homegrown truck line, built from Plymouth and DeSoto components, and planned to be sold by Chrysler dealers in the US before Chrysler's acquisition of Dodge.) Fargos were only sold by US dealerships from 1929 to 1931, but the division remained in existence for fleet sales and export. Some 1930s Plymouth passenger cars purchased by the US Army were badged as Fargos. In 1936, Chrysler Canada brought the Fargo name back for trucks sold by Canadian Chrysler-Plymouth dealers. From 1936 to 1972, Canadians probably bought more Fargos than any other export market. Nonetheless, the globe logo was a perfect for Chrysler's export truck line, as Fargo was known the world over as Chrysler's truck. "Source":http://www.allpar.com/history/logos.html
