1979 Headlight Script Emblem Dimensions/ Part #

Post by insanedeity »

Hello!

Today I realized that the Thunderbird script emblem is missing off my driver's side headlight cover. I am having a weird time trying to source the correct replacement. My measurements (and photo research) indicate it should be apprx 4" long x 1" on a '79. I keep finding ones for sale marked "77-79, but are 6"-7". I think these might be mislabeled ones for the '77 headlight cover or possible even the trunk?

Could anyone measure their script emblem dimensions? Or point me towards a diagram with part numbers? Have one for sale...?

Thanks in advance!

Update: Can you confirm or deny:

Additional research seems to shake out like this:

1977 Trunk Emblem part # D7SZ-6042528-A
~8" ? Has 3rd mounting post in the "T" above the line of the 2 additional posts

1977 Large Script Headlight Emblem part #D7SZ-13A186-A
`6" ? Three mounting posts, in-line, even spaced

1978-1979 Small Script Headlight Emblem part #D8SZ-13a186-B
~__" Three mounting posts, in-line, 3rd post narrowing and closer to end of script

God I now know too much about 1977-1979 badging. Just please tell me these don't shift year to year based on trim level. Please...
