Gday,

Was looking at a EB fairmont today and noticed it had had a lil statue/badge thingy ripped of the front of the bonnet.

Was just wondering what they actually were?
I know some Ghias had Ghia stuck there, but this was just a fairmont

And if anyone has some pics of one, could u post em?

Thanks

Jase

Theres was a s-pck down the road with one.
It is also slightly recessed into the bonnet

then i don't know cause i don't recall ford bringing them out on standard cars
they were prolly in an accident and the owner bought a ghia bonnet or some thing in the same colour as their car and found out bout that recess and decided to just leave the badge there - thats wot i think-

i thought only fairlanes and LTDs only had those badges sticking outta the bonnet??

though ive seen some stuck on anything from GL's to Ghias and some are stuck way to high up the bonnet and looks wierd.

I thought only LWB Ghias got them?

Our NC Ghia and NL Ghia had them, but I've seen a few Fairlanes without them.

You will probably find that most of the non-ghia cars running around with these badges on probably had a faded or damaged bonnet at some stage and have just been replaced with one off a ghia.

Ghia's dont have em. My EFII Ghia doesn't have one. Its only LTD and Fairlane Ghias that have em, in saying that my NA Fairlane never had one either

I believe the NC series III Fairlane introduced a bonnet ornament as standard (there was only a Ghia by that stage of course) but I too see them on various other cars. Not something I'd bother with personally.

My ED has one. It's been on since the day I bought it. It has the badge from the XF-type Fairlanes.
