PX5 LTD boot emblem

Does anyone know where I can get a boot emblem for the 1973 PX5 LTD ? Its just a "L" with chrome outside and a red interior.
Also the LTD stands for Lincon Type Design, the question is, is the floorplan based on the 1973 US Lincon ?

Any help on the history of the PX5 would be appreciated.

BA Falcon SR, Pearl Blue, with ALL the fruit. Apline V12 amp Kenwood servo subwoofer Amp. Headers and Exhaust.

Old car = AU Futura, Galaxy blue, IRS, 16" mags, DBA Slotted rotors. Pity to see it go, very good, under- rated car, RIP

You could try www.fomoco.com.au otherwise contact a Fairlane club on the offchance.

I have also heard that LTD stand for Lincold Thunderbird Division but have never got a definitive answer.

The Aussie LTD is just a stretched Falcon which is of course of US origin.

No Lincoln was called LTD, it was a Ford model and originally called Galaxy LTD, basically a large family sedan, I'm pretty sure it did share a chassis (actually a perimiter chassis) with Lincolns but certainly not the Falcon/Fairlane chassis which is of unitary construction.

You might want to check out an early Galaxy LTD, there is a car dealer on Gnangara Rd Landsdale who has one for sale at the moment, I forget there name but they are on the RHS (travelling east) just before the Gull petrol station. A bit further on and on the same side is Forparts, you could check with the for the Emblem.

IIRC, the centre boot emblem was actually a boot lock cover as well?
