Exclamation 1967 mustang fender emblem location

I have a 1967 mustang fastback and I am needing to know where the locations and dimentions are for both the driver and passenger side Mustang and 289 emblems. The Aftermarket fenders do not have the holes in them and I can not find a template or any dimentions on where they go in reference to the side of the fender.

I was unable to locate any templates for your application issue. What I would do is cut on the old fenders (if you still have them) start at the wheel well and go back to the end. Make sure the old emblem holes are inside your homemade patch. Place the new "patch" on top of the aftermarket fender matching up the wheel well and drill where the holes are.

Oh crap! I'll keep looking then. If we're lucky maybe someone will jump in and reply before I get back to you.

Here's the placement on a '69. It's all I could find so far. It should be pretty close. Make a template and see where you are at.

The top of the "M" is 4 1/8" down from the beltline on both sides and there's a 6 11/16" gap between the rear edge of the fender and the rear most part of the badge (top part of "g" on the drivers side).

My fenders were replaced before I bought the car and the emblems were on them already, so I have no idea if they're in the "correct" spot on the fenders, but if you want, I can go get the measurements on my car. If they're in the wrong spot at least I (and you) won't be alone!LOL. Let me know.

Jay- anything will be helpful now. We have the car ready for paint and prefer to drill holes before paint than after.

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

I've got the 289 emblem! I have the car for over three years and never took these measurements!! Guess what---they differ from fender to fender!!! I never noticed that.
FWIW The LETTERS used on my car are the ones that are stuck on, not drilled. This, to me is a big advantage, if you place a letter just a little "off" you can pull it off and repalce it where you want it. I've had to replce a couple since I have the car and I simply carefully used clear silicone adhesive. It won't take the paint off if you have to remove it, and any excess will come off easily--a lot better than drilling a hole in the wrong spot!!!
O.K. It would be best if you have the emblem in your possession so you can check the measurements to make sure they are the same for your emblem. The running horse emblem is exactly 3 3/4" tall, from the top of the red/white/blue bar to the bottom of the red/ white/ blue bar. The emblems on my car (measured from the top of the red/white/blue bar) are 6 3/4" below the center of the belt line of the fender on the Passenger side and 7 1/4" below the center of the belt line
on the driver's side. I'm pretty sure they should be the same, but I mention that because the difference just isn't noticeable unless you take a ruler to them!! The important thing is that on both fenders the bottom edge of the letters are even with the bottom of the emblem and are horizontally level.
The bottom line is that the only thing that is really important is the distance between the letters (which is given by The Greek in the post above mine). If the both sides differ a bit in height it just won't be noticed.
On both fenders the tip of the pony's nose is directly vertical of the spot where the wheel cut out ends at the fender bottom.
Hope that helps.

I checked both sides of my original fenders and the measurements are pretty close to each other as the measurements show. You are not going to find perfection on any of these mass produced cars. Hell, there's stories of people who lost points in show competition because they restored everything to perfection.

My original emblems are of the pin variety with ,of course, the fender holes. If I need to replace a fender in the future, I'd use the adhesive backed emblems too. I just hate to drill holes in new sheetmetal. It just gives rust a place to start. I'm sure that if the technology was there in 67, (adhesive tech), Ford would have been using it. I'm sure that it would have been a cost effective move.

the placement of the pins are as follows:

going off the center ridge i measured 2 different hoods. the first pin holes are all the same the second pin holes were all different. go figure. but the left hand pin hole for the F is 13" left of center and 13/16 of an inch up. the O is 5 inches left and 13/16" up. the R is 4" to the right and 13/16" up and last the D is 12" to the right and 13/16" up. You will need to eyeball the second holes to make them as atraight as you want them to. Like I said all the left side holes for the lettering were the same on both hoods but the right hand side differed by an 1/8 difference.
