Tailgate Emblem for an 81 Bronco

I was just wondering if anyone knew what the tailgate emblem was for an 81 Bronco. I recently purchased the vehicle and it only has about 8-10 holes in the bottom left-hand corner of the tailgate for where an emblem would go. I just want to know what it says so I can try and find one. Anyone got one? Thanks.

Some of those are probably from a dealer's nameplate. The only things the factory put there were a big Ford oval (3 holes) and the "BRONCO" emblem (2-3 holes). You can see them in the 3rd pic here.

1980-1982 Fords still had the individual "F" "O" "R" "D" letters on the hood and tailgate, just like the 78/79's did. They didn't start using the "Blue Oval" until '83.

Re: Tailgate Emblem for an 81 Bronco

80 Bronco...has your tailgate been changed? The Ford OEM tailgate replacements have the hole for the blue oval only and aftermarket replacements don't have any holes. If it was a junkyard tailgate it could have come from a newer truck.
