Anyone have a spare or know where I can get one?

I'm in Auckland NZ but should be simple enough to go by Royal Mail.

Appreciate anyone's help with this

Geoff

Did Auto Dolomites have an Automatic Badge?

As standard, no, but the model badges have the cut out on the lower lip to accept them, or an ‘overdrive’ or ‘injection’ badge as the desire takes you. I’ve obtained an ‘injection’ version for the quicksprint which is appropriate even though it runs on Webers ;-)

My Auto sprint has always had an auto badge on the boot since my dad bought it second hand in 1980, so I assumed it was factory fitted.

I have a spare automatic badge in VGC and would be happy to post it to NZ for you! Some 3 years ago, I put out a wanted ad and got 3 of them! so cover the postage and one is yours!

The one on the right I bought new, the one on the left is second hand and has had the door mirrors fitted, one is broken.
The automatic badges are not for sale. :wink:

I knew they had the cut out as I got an Auto badge for the 1500HL :thumbsup:
