That's were the Overdrive badge goes (below the Ford badge) Came from the factory with that badge starting in '85 with an automatic I believe.
I believe it’s also where the Eddie Bauer badge went if you had an EB package

Well... it does have a manual... I also believe it came from the factory that way.

There had to be some other telltale signs if it's an eddie?

Premium tan interior?

Eddie Bauer badge on fenders and/or dash trim?

Neither here nor there because Eddie Bauers didn't have badging on the hatch

Me bets the hatch is off a slushbox truck.

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Just install the overdrive badge. Then get a custom "Bachman Turner" badge to installing front of it.

Ive often thought of getting a journey badge from a dodge to put above the escape badge on the rear deck lid of our escape.

Eddie’s usually had power everything, tan interior, tan seats with embroidery, two tone exterior paint, usually green/tan or blue/tan. Most are auto/electric t-case, but I had one manual t case auto and I’ve heard of other manuals

So I changed the spark plugs and it hits on all 6 now. But I'm getting some varying symptoms as I drive it around the neighborhood. This 86 has no check engine light and I believe the IAC quit working. I found a vacuum leak and capped it and now it just tries to idle at about 500 rpms and stalls. I'm gonna pull the IAC and clean it and the throttle body. My analog meter is in storage and my 12 volt test light appears inop. I just ordered an INNOVA OBD1 code reader... should be here tomorrow. Been a long time since I've fooled with OBD1... I sure didn't miss it.

Ugh...

If it gets swapped... it will be a 302/C4 with a Holley Sniper TBI. At least that is where my mind is lately.

I really want to just straighten this 2.9L up until I get moved.
