My car has Pauls emblem on the steering wheel pad, but I bought a black steering wheel pad some years ago at a swap meet and the emblem is red, white, and blue. I've never seen anything different.

Mine, original, is red/white/blue from left to right. Other emblems I have on my other mustangs are this way too. Casey

While at Carlisle I found some the same way as mine but I was told that the correct way is Red White and blue . Well I got to change mine.

This kind of stuff about the cars just baffles me. Why would anyone change it. Even if the paint got bad and someone wanted to spruce it up wouldn't they paint it the same as it was?

Interesting things we find sometimes. Makes you wonder if some guy at the factory making the part was mad at someone and thought I'll show'em. I'll paint it bass ackwards. :o

The one that I purchased was a repo probably made over seas. The same way with the voltage regulator. Remember mine stuck open and cooked battery acid out. :-[

maybe the repros were a different combination to get away from the trademark thing.

That would be my guess. I had one of the deluxe round badges that went on the dash and it was backwards, too. Made in Taiwan! I finally found the right one at a swap meet. Still have the misprint.

Hey, wait a minute!!

Or......it was a accidental misprint at the factory. Extremely rare. Kind of like the misprinted buffalo nickels. I'll start taking bids from members only starting at oh, let's say...$500. Yeah, that's the ticket...Who wants to start the bidding on this rare, one of a kind find? ;D

While at the Hershey MuseumI was looking at a Continential convertible and if you look at the word continenial on the hood the last letter was backward they say some of them came from the factory like that. you can't reverse the letter because of the spacing. They called it the friday or monday car. Somebody waiting for the week end or coming to work on Mon. with a hang over.

I take it the word continental was in capital letters?

Last year I sent Jon some pictures of some of the cars that were in the museum and that was one of them.
