  • Mk II Bonnet Badge

    Looking for an Austin Mk II bonnet badge (not Cooper or S). Round badge with Austin "coat of arms". Needed for the South African estate.

    I need one too, in case someone has two of them laying around.

        You mean no one has a hoard of these lying around?

        Perhaps they are unobtanium?

            That's about $200 US. Ouch. Maybe I don't need one that badly.

            Should a '67 MKII have that kind of badge?

            I think I have a later model hood as it has a BL badge on it.

              I can ask around from some of my sources in japan, but those were the only two ones i knew of off the top of my head that had them in stock. Must be a rare part i'd imagine. who knows, maybe someone has a pile of new ones in their garage and able to hand them out like candy. Or more likely... maybe they are actually made of unobtanium.

                Craig, Later model bonnet won't fit on a Mk II.
                English Mk II would have the badge in question as long as not a Cooper or S.

                  Okay, the badge on my bonnet actually just has a L surrounded by the British Leyland life preserver thing. I just assumed that a later model hood had been fitted. It would be nice to have the correct Austin badge.

                    Craig,
                    are you sure you have a real 1967 mkII?

                      I am pretty sure, it has sliding windows and external door hinges and the horn on the end of the turn signal stalk. The title says 1967 although I guess that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

                      The trunk lid badge says Austin Mini MKII on it too.

                        Just making sure you didn't have a later car, the badge on the bonnet you have wasn't made untill '76 or so. But your bonnet may be a "universal" replacement (it has two sets of mounting holes), the later style badge.

                          I thought I would re-assert my interest in one of these badges hoping for something far less than the $200 Japanese ones.

                          I saw a few cars at the Vancouver ABFM that had them and it just made me want one even more.

                          I did not resort to attempting to pry one off...

                          Too many people about.
