Tail panel Cuda emblem placement
« on: February 27, 2018 - 08:34:03 pm »
Does anyone have measurements of where the Cuda emblem should be placed on the tail panel of a 1972 or 1973 Barracuda? Also, is there a second emblem like "by Plymouth" or something like that?  Can these be purchased?

Here is mine... if you need exact measurements, I can get for you...

Try RosevilleMoparts.com for both... Dave carries quite a bit, but I'm not sure if he carries these two items...

Thanks guys.  It looks like the Cuda goes about mid tail light and a third up the license plate?  Is it centered between the two?  Measures are appreciated.  I've already purchased the Cuda emblem from Roseville.  I've seen "plymouth" on e-bay by by plymouth are harder to locate.

I'll grab some measurements from license/fuel pocket to the right edge of the emblems, and from base of tail panel up to bottom of both on mine... will post today for you.

Emblems are 2.25" from plate recess to right edge, 'by Plymouth" is 2" above bottom of tail panel to lower edge, and 'Cuda is 3.375" from bottom of tail panel to lower edge (where filler meets up with it)...

Yeah, no doubt.  I'm just big on details with a wrong or right action. I assume there is usually an engineering or design intent but at the end of the day, it was the American automotive industry in the 70's  :bigsmile:
