Post by jq » Sat Apr 24, 2004 12:54 pm

i have a 49 el and my question is "was the lettering on the tank badge red or black? Ive been told that "red" means orig. and "black" means aftermarket.. could someone shed some light on this?

Original Fox badges had red lettering. I will try to post some originals. I too have a 49EL.

Okay, I posted an original paint fox tank emblem under misc gallary.

Yeah Tracy...you're correct...they ARE difficult to find. I wonder why that is? The 51-53 are much easier to locate, they are a better looking emblem in my opinion, and are much less $$$!!!!! Go figure...Well...thanks for getting back to me...Have a good one.

Here are a pair of Eagle Iron aftermarket badges I just ran across:
Black lettering though. This guy also has badges for a couple of other years.

unfortunately eBay is probably the best place, u might put an add at Georges web site under wanted section or keep an eye out on the for sale side.
