Can Anyone Help Me With a Classic GMC Emblem Font???

I've searched to the end of the interwebs. Does anyone know if this font exists on any of the various font websites? I'm playing with a customized dash emblem. Posting a photo example, I need the "Sierra Classic" font.

Here are some very close examples...with the Baskerville Old Face font being the closest. Obviously GM took some artistic liberties, but here is what think, in order of likelihood.

Given the era the design came from, very likely a staff artist for GM drew it up. Possibly modifying existing designs for other emblems.

Possible someone has since created a computer font version but any such font might have copyright/trademark issues with GM.
