This seems to clear up the confusion (on my part anyway) about which direction the stems of the gold clover badge goes on the driver and passenger sides. Thanks

I'm not an expert here, but I think we are looking at two driver side emblems. I've always thought that the stem should point towards the front of the car. The photo is from the IAP catalog.

Photos of the golden quads from my 68 1750 GTV. I painted the car in the mid 80's but pretty sure I didn't replace them. It's been covered in my garage waiting on tender loving care since the early 90's.

Stem forward on drivers side, stem rearward on passenger side appears to match nimbus. damage next to stem on both----

Huntsville? I just bought a 77 spider from a guy in Moulton Ala who got it from a little old lady, it had been sitting up since 03. You wouldn't happen to know of the car? It was repainted a copper color. Just thought I'd take a long shot.

According to the information I have there is a different catalogue number for each side.

LHS 105.44.62.501.00
RHS 105.44.62.500.00

These are the gold cloverleaves for the 1750s. I'm not sure about the green ones for the 1600s.

Having said that, both of mine are the same (stem to the front on one side and to the rear on the other), though they are not original. The originals were replaced many years ago and I no longer have them.

The Alfa suppliers I've checked only sell one type, though they do sell both sides for the 2000GTVs (Visconti serpent).

Odd.

That's pretty much the drill Only reason I got it was the guy was going to part it out because it didn't run. The car is perfectly straight and has basically zero rust and I just couldn't let such a good example die that death. I've got it running, all it really needs are a couple of seals, and a good paint job. suspension is tight and steering is very crisp, comp is 150 on all four and it runs great... now
sorry for the highjack, had to ask

Well, this is for the nerds now!

The original brochure introducing the mk1 in 1968 shows the left side
badge positioned like on my car - stick pointing forward.

Now! would anybody be able to supply time correct 1968-70 brochures or pictures showing the right side badge - the stick pointing in which direction???
If we have this time correct documentation on how the left and right side badges are positioned, we can close this study leaving no doubts.

This 69 mk1 looks very unrestored - not likely that the badges were ever changed on this one.
So it seems that during production, Alfa Romeo placed the right side badge with stick pointing backwards.
So to conclude from this - the same badge were used on both sides of the car with the stick pointing in either direction.

I had a dig around and found the original badges and the second generation ones (the car has been in the family since near new). I've currently got the third generation ones on my car. They are all LHS 501.00 badges.

Chris

If the top pair are the originals, appears to confirm mine are also original in that all four have almost identical inlay damage by the stem. Looks like a method of determining original quads.
