1982 Period Correct Badges ??

Does anybody know or have any pics of the proper badges for a 1982 Custom F 150?


I would like to see how big the F150 lettering is below the Custom badge.

The Custom trim level was ditched after 1981. 1982 saw the introduction of nothing, XL, and XLT Lariat.

80-81 had the F100/350 lettering/numbering the same size, along with the custom/ranger(xlt)/explorer badges also sharing the same lettering size.
82-86 had a larger F, followed by the 100-350 in a smaller size. Under the numbers (beside the lower part of the big "F") would have been blank (custom) or xl/xlt badges that were rather small. Lariat badges were attached on the "B" pillar, when equipped.

Really?
My '87 fender badges say custom below the F-250.

Guess Ford reintroduced it with the bricknose body style.

OK, now I am going to have to go look this truck over again. Where I got the notion this was a custom truck is slipping my mind.


I will report later.

It's a Bruno custom. Ain't that good enough?

I had a freind that bought some Oldsmobile badges to put on his truck. It was a lowered step side, with a 6" chop top, the rear window was in the shape of a bowtie, and flames over pearl white.
The Olds badges read "custom cruiser". I think they were appropriate for the truck......

IIRC, it came back for 87-88 or so, was dropped again, came back in 1992, and then was dropped for a third and final time.

I hope they do too. I need to look at the truck again. I have an early 82 and it has some funny details that are different.


It was great meeting you too Dave! I hope it isn't the last time we see each other.

The way I read this is what Shaun said - CUSTOM lettering all by itself went away after 81.





That says Type 3, which looks like this:





And later there was the Type 22 badge for the 87's:





And, the badge which looked like this:




Now, I'm not saying that an 82 can't have had 81 badging. I know of people who have things on one year truck that aren't supposed to be there according to the catalog. In fact, I have 1981's with build dates in October and November of 1980 that are supposed to have clear turn signal lenses according to the catalog, but neither does - and I can't imagine that all four of them have been changed. So, I'm not saying your truck couldn't have come with Custom badging. But it wasn't supposed to.
