Default 1994 XJ12 side Badge?


above you will see a photo of the 2 side badges on my Jag. there are the standard "Leaper" and then the Bigger one with the Crown.
the Bigger one is a vent and yes, there is a opening in the panel.
are these Factory?
is this a "Gold" or "Insignia" edition?

I have looked but found no other cars with these vents.

PS, don't mind the rust, that's next on the list.

thanks, Dave - my car specs below.

Hi - I don't think that looks like a Jag part - could it be that the previous owner "customized" the car with a part from something like a Crown Victoria?

Hi Larry
that's why I asked, no idea what they are or why they are there.
one each side and they are in-set into the Panel.
I have not found any other photo's of a Jag or anything else with these.
they do have a crown on them in a shield, so I thought might be factory add-on item.

thanks, Dave

UPDATE - NOT Factory, and NO Holes in the Panel.
just a metal screen and black fabric backing.
now to get some acetone and get the sticky stuff off.

Thank you for removing those things!! Sometimes an owner's customization is in poor taste to many. The link shows how a prior XJ12 owner gold-plated just about everything on the car that should be chrome. The only correct gold would be the growler badges, and (I think) the small V12 emblem on the B-pillar.
