66 High Country Special Fender Badges

Hey fellow HCS 66 owners, I'm asking for a favor....if you are lucky enough to have HCS badges on your car, please send me a clear, close up photo of your badges to labeau61@gmail.com. I may have found someone that can reproduce a similar pair. I need to provide examples to get them as true as possible. Photos on websites do not represent the life size and clarity needed. I would greatly appreciate it! Ford valve cover blue right?

Thanks!!

Incorrect Account info

I apologize to those that attempted to email your 66 badge photos to me using the saved address on my account. Didn't realize until I received a response this morning to my gmail account. Thanks Dave! The email feature was sending to an AOL account that no longer exist. I've made corrections to the account info here so now I should receive. High anxiety I have says Yoda...Ha. If you sent me photos before today, sadly, I didn't receive them....

If the "replica" badges turn out as well and I think, would anyone else be interested in a pair? Let me know.

Hello Beau66- My father started the HCS registry and was also having the fender badges reproduced here in Denver by the company originally contracted by Ford. That company is no longer in business but I have the artwork from them and we are currently working on getting them produced by another company and available to those folks that need them. I have decals available for the '68's and we are also in the process of having the Lucas fog light bolts kits reproduced for the '68 HCS and CS's which was another item that my dad supplied. If you don't mind waiting a bit longer I think we can get these badges done as correct as possible and also be able to cross check the registry with those purchasing badges to try and ward off any possible counterfeit cars. Feel free to pm or email me anytime and as soon as I have more information I will pass it along to you and the forum. Appreciate it, Dan Teets

I'd definitely like to get a set of 67 replica badges (or a good set of originals)! Final details...

Patrick- contact Willis Scharmer at hcsmustangs@aol.com

He is in the process of getting 66 & 67 badges reproduced again.

I am in process with a reputable supplier and still working on getting the process and tooling correct. If someone has detailed photos of the rear of either 66 and/or 67 badges that are off the car I would appreciate your assistance so I can make sure the back sides are correct as well. Thanks!

Yes and no. I am still working with two potential suppliers to faithfully reproduce the badges. I have eliminated about 6 companies due to the pilot parts not looking correct. I hope to have something soon. I appreciate your patience. Thanks!

Someone had a set of NOS badges, in the bag, posted on here a few years back. I wonder if they ever made it onto a car? Those should be your model.
