Original 3000 V6 badges

My Capri only has one 3000v6 badge and its completely bare metal, apparently these were coloured when they came from the factory, just wonder what they looked like originally?

    Hi Matt
     
    are these the badges you mean ?  (see attachment)
     
    If impossible to find, or too expensive, maybe you or an artistic friend could re-paint them ?
     
    Both mine need doing too, as they're both also one silver/chrome colour

    Yep that's them

    Is that how they looked from the factory?

    Oh really, why are these repros orange, they look good but not if they're the wrong colour.

    A pic of one I have in the car
    Not a good representation - just different shades of grey/silver - as is original
    I have quite a few at home - will pick out the most unmolested and post a pic

    This thread seems to suggest that orange is correct. ford.org/cfp/m/tm.aspx?m=68890&p=

    Interesting, seems the '3000GT' badges were red, and the '3000V6' orange,
    However this says orange around the 'V6', the repro badge has orange around the '3000'

    Just had another look at the badge on my Capri (October 1970)
    Doesn't seem to have the seperator bit between the 3000 and the V6, I wonder why.

    Thanks Deano........
    had a hunt and even tried "overseas" button but no luck for Mk1 1972 3000V6 Badges....
    found heaps for the later one that has the shape of a "SHIELD".........
    guess I'll keep trying different search criteria
    cheers

    This is getting interesting, the first pic in the eBay add looks scratched and dented so I assume its an original badge from somewhere and if you zoom in on the 1970 brochure that Terry posted, page 3 it looks orange to me.  In any case they look better than the faded scratched originals and as for being expensive, its all relative, they are much cheaper than what some are asking for fuel cap.

    The ebay listing ones are brand new, where is this brochure?

    Zoom in on the first pic, it looks like he is showing that this is what he made the repros from.  Its all scratched and dented.  Brochures are in the brochures section of this forum, posted a couple of days ago.
     
    UK never had 3000V6, they had 3000GT & 3000E in non shield format so these are what sometimes come up.

    What happens to the orange anodising then? Does it fade evenly to grey like the one Spud posted? Orange makes sense with the GT badge etc it's just that I've never seen a bage that's still orange. Must have faded early on on their life.
