How are the 2 trunk lid emblems supposed to be arranged on the 71-73 XR-7s? (Cougar script and XR-7 emblem) :1zhelp:

I am sure that the XR-7 symbol goes on the bottom right side corner. I think that the cougar goes on the bottom left:( not sure though:1poke:

You mean, one emblem on each corner of the trunk lid?

Like I said, I'm not exactly sure about the cougar symbol because mine had fallen off but I do know that the XR-7 symbol goes on the bottom right.

Emblem placement

I just asked Ray Harwood at [email protected] and he sent me an original ad of 71 (maybe 72 and 73 are also the same) and it showed the Cougar script on the passenger side and along side it was the XR-7 emblem. The "a" in the Cougar was half way inbetween the right taillight. Maybe, this is the final answer!;)

ok...I just went outside to check and Ray was definitely correct.:rolleyes: The XR-7 is 1.5 inches above the bottom of the trunk and the Cougar is just a little bit higher. This trunk that I referenced was a 73' so yours should be the same.
