Front Grille Emblem & Ford Badge

ZanyZane
So where is the best place to try and find the front XLT hood ornament and the Ford badge?

The grille emblems are a pain to find (and $$$).

But, if you aren't going for a 100% concours replacement, there was a later Expedition rear hatch emblem that will fit and look decent:

It's engineering number 2L14-7843156-AA, often described in eBay listings as "7" Ford Emblem"

I think I paid $17 for that one in lightly used condition? Beats $150 or so (what the actual part used to go for at least).

I got one at LMC for the 86 I used to own. It looked good and didn’t fade.

did it look like this one that Dennis Carpenter offers?

It says it fits 80 - 86 Bronco but only 67 - 79 trucks.

Dennis also has the replacement grill emblem not the OE one the '82s came with, I was lucky enough to locate one NOS and paid a pretty penny for it as I wanted the 82 style with its clear shell.
