Badge types

Hi all ,
We continue to remove all paint, to find that rear quarter panels have been replaced. We can at this stage only assume that all of its running gear and panels originate from the one car.
Were curious to learn other than a gt badge, are any other badge used on rear quarter panels.
The gt badge that was fitted to this car do not cover the distance, our holes have been drilled at 60mm . And sat above the rear wheel arch.
The ones in question sitting further back, are drilled at 95mm apart.

    Reeni, badges that sat further back on the rear quarter panel included the G and T badges, if the car had the delete option (these were also used on the XT Falcon GT on the C pillar) and another pair of letters, used in the same position, were X and L. To my knowledge these badges were all separate, so G & T or X & L, as opposed to GT and XL, together as one badge. see example attached

    Reeni dont panic ! ..............  when all is said and done, you still have a rare and much loved Australian assembled car for the Australian Market, and thus sits in the Category of an "Australian Classic" , regardless of its engine and gearbox if they are same as original Pinto and correct Box.
    Some Capri owners would give half their liver for such a rust free body as yours Capri appears to be !

    Reeni -  what is the model code from the compliance plate?  e.g. 13018 is a 1970 V6 GT, 13118 is a 1971 V6 GT, 13014 is a 1970 Deluxe.

    The chassis number is CK17LP23832P so the Model no. should be 13118.

    If you post some pics of the inner guards in the engine bay people here will be able to tell you from the pressings if its a 4cl or 6cyl shell.

    Hi all,
    if it's Model # 13228, can that be only a 1972 GT V6, or was that number allocated to the Dport Specials, or both ?
    thanks

    Model code 13228 does not exist.
    The model code for 1972 GT V6 is 13218 and the engine code remains the same for oval or 'D' port engines, ie. P=V6, as per your Vehicle ID Plate.
     
    Broken down, this 13218 code means 13=Capri (Ford Vehicle ID), 2=1972 (Model Year), 1=2 Door (Body Style) and 8=GT Sedan (Model Type).
     
    Note/s: the third digit can be a '9' for 1969, a '0' for 1970, a '1' for 1971 or a '2' for 1972 and,
    the fifth digit can be a '4' for 'Deluxe' Sedan, a '6' for 'XL' Sedan or an '8' for GT Sedan.

    Was meaning to also ask if this speedometer was also likely have to be changed? And if so from which mk would it have come from. 140mph looks high to what I've seen on line.

    Reeni, the GT/V6 model had a 140mph speedo (as you showed in your photo above) along with a tacho that redlined at 5800rpm. The tacho should also have V6 showing in the middle of the gauge, down the bottom. See photo attached. The 1600GT and XL models, had a 120mph speedo and the tacho on these models redlined at 6000rpm.

    Hi Reeni.
     
    From memory, the GT Badge always is placed perpendicularly above the rear wheel arch for
     
    V6 GT's and 1600 GT's, EXCEPT in the case of the "Eleven Specials" that were built circa 09/72,
     
    in which case the same GT Badge is placed approx half way between the rear arch and rear tail lamp,
     
    viz : in same position where the XL Badge would have gone on non-GT models.
     
    I will stand corrected if memory has let me down.
     
    Like some GT Falcons, i would have preferred an extra GT Badge at front and rear as well, but as this was not
     
    in the factory design, I refrain from fitting them, as I do prefer keeping to Factory Standard unless safety
     
    improvements are involved, like brakes or seat belts.
     
    Happy New Year to you and all members in this Forum.
     
    Kindest regards,
     
    Bernie

    I've heard that stripes and roo were optional, and car yards at times were the ones to add them to the gt models.
    Question being if left the factory, not to be added later, does the gt badge still stay above wheel arch

    Stripes and Superoo decal and bonnet blackouts were optional when ordered at the dealers and, if not fitted from the factory (quite rare), the GT badge (used only on the 3000GT) was moved to the back rear quarter position on the 3000GT models instead of above the rear wheel arch.
    With regard to the "Eleven Specials" that Bernie is talking about, only those that had no stripes would have had the GT badge moved to the rear quarter position. Most, as I understand it and having seen a few, all have the stripes, Superoo decals and bonnet blackouts, except for Bernie's. All those 'Specials' with stripes, still retained the GT badge above the rear quarter arch! The only Capri that had a GT badge, front or back, was the RS3100 which had 'Capri GT' on the right hand side of the boot. As Bernie correctly states, there were never GT badges on the front or the back of the 1600GT or the 3000GT Capri.
    The 1600GTs only had a GT decal on the fuel filler flap, and on the opposite side 'C' pillar, as well as on the front mudguards behind the front wheel, where it said 1600GT. Only those 1600GT models with no stripes had the additional GT badge in the rear quarter position, these were separate G and T badges as used on the XT Falcon ('C' pillar), otherwise none at all, certainly not above the rear wheel arch.
     
    Welcome to 2020 I hope everyone has a great year!

    Reeni. The picture you showed in the Hello thread of the wheel arch with no paint of your car clearly shows what type of Capri it is. Yours is definitely a V6. The 4cyl has less strength in that area. Yours could have been a delete model or maybe rear quarters replaced. Really doesn't matter but yours is a genuine V6 unless the whole of of the cars panels were replaced.

    You also had the Capri deluxe model the base Capri from 1970. Which I think had a badge on rear quarter ( maybe only on front wing?) It was a bigger badge. Your car is a V6 though. Personally you are putting doubt on your car and stress on yourself not showing the detail. We need a pic of where the battery is fitted and where the heater Bubble sits also as you showed under the front wheel arch towards front of car ( you've shown that now and it's V6) hope that helps. Happy New year to you and all on here. Keith
