Austin radiator badge - Vancevr - 25-02-2021

I recently bought a 1929 a7 tourer, I was wondering what badge should go in the radiator/grill?

RE: Austin radiator badge - Rick F - 25-02-2021

A plain script "Austin", like this:

In Australia plated brass, later Aluminium

I saw was this one too and didn't know which one it could be because all the pictures showed different things.[Image: s-l1600.jpg]

Isn't that one from an early Austin Mini boot lid?

That's a Ruby badge surely?

RE: Austin radiator badge - Derek Sheldon - 25-02-2021

That is a Ruby period script. The Mini Script isn’t as flamboyant, the script is circa 4mm wide throughout

The script badge posted by Rick F is the correct type but a little misleading, as it does not show the countersunk holes at each end for the fixing screws and gives the appearance of a black finish whereas it is actually plain aluminium.

This is assuming the car is a 1929 model as stated - earlier cars may not have had a script badge at all, just the Austin winged badge on the cowl.

And just an afterthought - a look through the picture gallery will show plenty of correct examples.
