Looking good! That engine is sweet. Did you ever find another console for your car??

I lived in Hawaii in the '70's and '80's and I remember a Honolulu cop drove one of these. I couldn't imagine trying to outrun one of those then or now. But of course there was the element of living on an island and there is only so much road to get away on.

Thanks! Yes I found one. I just have to get it dyed to the correct color. I know what you mean about only so far I can run on this island, but I could give them fits for a little while any way.

I think the top pic and bottom black car are the proper locations but I have a photo of MY car when it was new and the X emblem is to the right of the circle but BOTH are at least another two inches towards the key hole...VERY STRANGE INDEED..

P.S. Let me know if you need parts...Im in possession of a lot for these cars..

Here is a diagram from my 72 Parts Catalog. It shows it above the Road Runner. I hope this helps.

To throw in another dilema I have several pics of original paint cars that have the GTX fender emblems not only in different locations in the same area BUT like on my car the one on the right fender was at least 6 inches HIGHER than on the left fender..Ive seen this on several original 72 GTXs...

I know that car!
Here are some more opinions about the 72’ “GTX” badges and that diagram in the 72’ parts book.
Tom, there are some borrowed shots of your car in that thread as well.

MY fender GTX emblems in my factory paint photos show the pass side emblem 5 inches higher than the drivers side...Ive seen it that way on two other orig paint cars too....I dont think there was a standard but just an area they were supposed to be...

I don't think the yellow RR/GTX is an original paint car. It appears to have a 71' Strobe Stripe. If this was put on by a previous owner, there's no telling what else was altered, or if it is indeed even an original RR/GTX. For what it's worth, mine is the same as pic 1&4

Its a correct 72 Strobe

My mistake. I was looking at the spacing between the segments and they looked wide like the 71' stripe! The 72' Strobe has more segments and was available on Road Runners only. The GTX option could not get the Strobe. It could have been added by an owner and that's my point. Modified car.

Road Runner strobe for 71 has the running bird in the bottom segment..Plus It looks as if it does not come down as far on the quarter as a 72..
