    I’m 3rd owner of a 71 Barracuda. When I got the car back in the 80’s, it had 383 emblems on both front fenders. The emblems were not stickers, the person who I bought the car from said that the 383’s were on the fenders when he bought the car from the original owner. I have never seen this before, so I left the numbers off during the restore. Here are the pics, let me know if you think that they are factory or if you have ever seen this before. Thank you

    Is there an L for the engine code?
    Does it have a 2 bbl carb?
    I'm sure I've seen that on a 70 Barracuda with a 383 2 Bbl carb
    Not 100% sure about the 71 though.

    I've seen that on a 70 2bbl as well.

    What is the production date of your L code car? (assuming L code)

    Thank you, although I’ve never seen it, but something told me that the emblems were factory
