A car badge, commercially produced, attaches to the bumper / fender or a bar fitted to the front.

Most were made by J.R.GAUNT using chrome plated cap badges usually fitted with two threaded bolts fixed onto enameled plates in regimental or corps colours. Your example is maker marked where the plate fits onto a bar or car bumper.
