GT/CS emblems

I just received the GT/CS emblems in the mail From Paul Newitt that he had advertised for sale.

I have to say that I'm inpressed with the quality and detail of the emblems.

If there is anyone sitting on the fence wondering if they should get them or not, in my humble opinion, go for it.

Re:GT/CS emblems

Dave,
I will also agree with you, I too have a set and they look very high quality. I have already purchased (thru ebay) the correct steering wheel center pad to attach the emblem.

Re:GT/CS emblems

Doug, I ordered the woodgrain piece for the steering wheel from Tony D. Branda.

I have to install a pair of " front of front door window seals " first, and then I will start on the steering wheel.

I think it is going to look good.

Re:GT/CS emblems

Gosh! WOW. Thank you for the compliments, guys!

I made those emblems about three years ago, and just sat on them--until now.

I still have about five sets, if anyone else wants one....at $95 per set-- e-mail me for the details, photo of parts, address, etc.

Many thanks!

Not familiar with these, what exactly are we talking about? Any pictures we can see?

Thanks, Cory

Re:GT/CS emblems

Cory,
Here is a pic, they where something what was developed by Ford as possible additions for the CS but did not make it into production. Paul made these from the drawings (I believe). The smaller one fits in the steering wheel using a cougar or Shelby center pad, and the long one fits over the Mustang script above the glove box.

I have a friend who owned GT/CS that had the original badging when they were for sale a long time ago. I begged him to let me cast them and reproduce them for my GT/CS. Attached is my finished resin casting c/w painting.

Rick I don't know if there was a copy right on these so we would need to confirm this. I wonder if anyone else on the site know.

thanks

I doubt there is a Canadian copyright.
