I've noticed that this post has been up for several days without results in resolving this dilemma. I just had to try and help, so I have gone out and measured my original fenders on my 67. I used a straight edge for measuring so I didn't follow the curvature of the fender, I just projected straight down.
Starting with the pony emblem. I don't have the 289 emblem, but I have the emblem for the 6 cyl. that doesn't have the box with the displacement, so I have measured to the outer top of the red, white and blue "box".
All of the vertical measurements were from the center of the fender "belt line", the extended horizontal feature that runs a few inches below the upper most part of the fender.
The other measurement was from the rear edge of the fender on the same plane as the emblem or letter.
From the rear tip of the pony's tail to the rear edge of the fender is: 11 5/8 in., from center of belt line to the top outer edge of the tri-color "box" is 8 1/8 in., as I said, I don't have the part that says "289".
The letters are: from center of belt line to the top of the letter "M" is 10 13/16 in. and to the letter "G" is 10 9/16 in. The rest of the letters just follow a straight line, obviously. This is for the driver's side.
The passenger's side is letter "M" 10 5/8 in., letter "G" 10 7/8 in. down.
The letter spacing is not the same between letters. I am giving you the measurements from the center of each letter to the center of the next letter. Starting with the center of the letter "G" to the rear edge of the fender is 2 in. (driver's side)
Center of letter "M" to rear edge of fender is 2 3/16 in. (pass. side)
M to U- 1 13/16 in.
U to S- 1 7/16 in.
S to T- 1 9/16 in.
T to A- 1 9/16 in.
A to N- 1 11/16 in.
N to G- 1 9/16 in.
Just reverse the order of the measurements for the other fender.
Remember this is from the center to the center of each letter.
The spacing for the drivers side and the passenger side letters is the same, you are just using the correct letters for the side that you are working with.
I sure hope this helps you out. ---Chuck
