    Hey
    If you can make it, why don't you make a few. I'm sure a few of the people on here would be keen. I for one am very interested in having one set too/

    Thanks,
    Ron

    Hi fnqvmuch: Would you care to enlighten this ignorant web footed one? I'm not familiar with the history of the plaque despite owning a made in Oz 203C. Would love to know.
    Taa mate.

    i know nothing really.
    It just seemed, in my youth, to be on quite a few of the 203s i looked at - if not sedans.
    Now, especially following years of plundering the inter-webs for photos, i am inclined to think it was
    unique to some australian-assembled 'U' variants; at least Commerciale knew what I meant - I haven't seen one for years.
    Hopefully he, or another fellow traveller, knows a bit more ..

    Hi,

    I could be wrong and more then likely am, but I think only the commercial vehicles (utes and Wagons) had them. Don't recall them on any of our family sedans but certainly do on the two wagons we had.

    Cheers

    Dan

    Well, that's new news from the past.

    Count me in if a copy badge is made for resale.
    also would like to see a picture of one in context.

    On a similar note, i have recently got quotes on having copies of the early 'lacework' badge cut by ?water laser from stainless steel.
    But thought it too expensive at ~$100 each.
    also not sure where to source the small Peugeot sheild that mounts in the center.

    Hey Dan, I know of at least two '51-'52 203 sedans that have that particular badge on their boot lids, both in identical positions above the 2nd model boot badge, along with cream coloured dash centre panel on both cars. Maybe a dealership trick of that year! How's the 4oh coming along?

    To clear this matter up I can confirm that the blue anodized badges were only fitted to 203U models assembled in NSW by Harden and Johnston. One on each front guard and one under the tailgate of wagons and vans. The equivalent badge on sedans was a cast chromed version on front guards and boot lid. I can only assume that any variation would have been the result of the owner's individual initiative.

    hi lo photos would be very much appreciated by those into such detail - i hope not just me.
    commerciale - the cast and chrome - like that on most 403s? if the tin ones were only H&J's they certainly moved a lot into the Victorian population ...
