Default RE: Fort Lee emblem

Fort Lee is in New Jersey. I am not sure if that dealership still exists. I got no relevant results doing a search on the Internet for "Fort Lee Ford." On American cars of that era it was common for dealers to attach cast pot metal nameplates. My 1960 Golde Top has the holes and rivets for a nameplate on the trunk similar to yours, but the nameplate is long gone.

Nameplates from dealers of that era are hard to find now since most restorers take them off when restoring a car. Recently, because of their rarity and historical significance, people are replating and attaching them on their cars during restoration.
