Original SVT Focus badge

Hi all,

This is my first post so thanks for reading!

I've got an '03 SVT Focus that I've had for about 4 years. I love it (recently started taking it on track days) and am currently in the process of fixing some cosmetic things.

I just had a bunch of paint-work done including a complete repaint of the rear hatch. As a result the badges were removed. The SVT focus badge on the back was in perfect condition but the paint-shop said the "focus" part didn't survive when they removed it.

I know a lot of people de-badge their SVTs but I really want mine to maintain the original look. I know SVT badges are available on eBay, but there aren't any full, original "SVT focus" badges available. I was going to buy SVT and focus badges separately but now realize the SVT "focus" badge is smaller.

I can just use the SVT badge on its own I guess but I'd really like the original OE item. Does anyone here have one they'd like to sell or know where I could get one?

Thanks for your help guys!

I look forward to contributing to this great forum...

to FF, Corey. Try Village Ford, a sponsor here, or Autonation of White Bear Lake (f/k/a Tousley Ford) on FJ. We'd love to see photos of your baby!

Honestly I prefer the look of the badge without the "focus" just the SVT. I didnt really like how large and rounded the SVT badge is on the focus so I got myself a cobra SVT badge and I think it looks great! But hey, everyone has a different taste. I see your from BC, my family lives in Richmond, just down the way... God I love those Big Turk candy bars! Too bad you cant get em in the states...

Yeah I agree, just the SVT by itself is a cleaner look.

It's just that I'm one of those people who likes to have his car as original as possible. I may have to suck it up this time though!

Yeah Gav-O-SVT, Richmond is just down the road. Big Turks are definitely good. We have something similar in Australia (where I'm originally from).

*Business plan... export Big Turks to the US...*

I like having the Svt badge on the car but hated the oem Svt badge that the focus came with to me it was just cheap looking. So I took an Svt cobra badge and put it in place of the original focus badge. I picked it up on ebay.

Hey to. I'd stick to your original plan= svt/focus emblem.

That looks really good Svt_kid. I actually have ordered one of those now. I won't put it on though until I've done a bit more investigation...

I did the same thing to my car. I *love* the look of the SVT cobra badge!

To the OP, the Ford part number for the "SVT focus" badge is 2M5Z-5842528-BA. I think Steve over at Tousley Ford said they still stock those badges.
