badge question

Postby craig12 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 3:24 pm

on the boot of a 1800 magnum , should it just have the magnum sign at the drivers side or should there be an 1800 badge to the right of the magnum badge

Magnum on driver's side and smooth style 1800 beside it.

They would have been fitted with pins into holes with plastic inserts. Hmmm... I wonder if the badge on the boot was only fitted to 2300 cc cars?

I'll try to get a chance to have a look tomorrow, I've got a Magnum tailgate that I think still has the badges on.

I've just checked the parts book and it looks like a 1800 badge was listed for the boot lid of an 1800 Magnum and Viva.

I think it is impossible to say what is correct or not. It all comes to buildyear, bodyshape and engine and to get some logic in all is impossible I guess.

You're probably right - and what badges were available when the car went down the line probably played a part, too.
