Those badges were used on Scandinavian cars and North American ones too. You could also try Mk1 forum

Been over to the MK I forum...thanks!  Still looking for the elusive -8-5-0- barn door badge in script.

 

Meanwhile the body, door, bonnet are all in sealing primer...ready for colour next week.

It has been a too long process with this one...

Soon to get the Mini back...colour has been applied.  The shop went to skeleton staff & no visitors with the COVID-19 pandemic...so slowed a little since March.

I can't promise but I will see if a friend might have what you require. I'm in South Africa.

Hi I have found one of those 850 script badges that you require. My price in South African Rands is R120.00. You would have to cover the cost of postage, so let me know if you are intereted.

 

Cheers

Mike

Hi Darkrider,

 

Is it new, unused?  If so, I would buy it and pay the postage.

Okay, so the Woody is in paint after some fine tuning of the A pillars for door & seal fit and the RH doorstep.  The wood was offered up twice before paint.

 

Now back 'home' for assembly...

The colour was used by Ford Motor Co. on compact car models 7-10 years ago, marketing it as 'Lime Squeeze Metallic', though the Ford generic name is 'Green Orchid'.  The 'White Metallic' top has small flecks of dark and light green...our own creation.

 

The Lime Squeeze is one of the reasons the Mini will be a 'Modified Collector' here in B.C.  The other is the use of the Autumn Leaf for MK I seats, carpet from some 15 years later in Minis.  Other interior bits like the door kick panels, bin caps, door latches and switch panel are in Russet Brown.  Wood rim steering wheel provides a close match to the end grain of the Tasmanian Blackwood gear shift knob (fashioned from wood I brought back from the Morrison Mill in Strahan, Tasmania).  Though I have not yet selected the 'look' of the exterior wood, I am leaning towards picking up on the edge grain hues of the Tassie Blackwood.

 

Mechanically, it will have the built 1293cc A Series with Swiftune cam, duplex timing gears, +20 thou "S" pistons on new A+ rods with new A+ crank, lightened flywheel/backing plate, A+ transmission with 3.44 FD, HIF44, Cooper Freeflow & twin box by Maniflow.  Rod change gearbox so we had welded in a later forward tunnel.  "S" brakes, Special Tuning 4.5"x10" alloys with A008 tyres.

 

Working away on the bits, brake & fuel lines are in, new steering rack is in, front subbie is in, soon new fuel tank, followed by built rear subbie.  Then the trailing arms, front hubs & roll around wheels.

 

Slowly moving forward.
