Default park avenue

Hello Guys,
I'm new here, but I'm a big fan of Buick, I have Lesabre 59, Lesabre 63 and Park avenue 91. Please I want to help me with information - where I can find 3.8 V6 sign on rear quarter of my Park avenue. For sorry I search in the net and I can't find any Buick with 3.8V6 sign on rear quarter.

Oopsy daisy, those seem to have chrome Park Avenue badges on rear quarters and perhaps V6 engine badges on front fenders in back of front wheel wells. Can barely make out in photo.

I see what your saying. Saw a few photos with Buick tri-shield in that area. Appears to be stick on not pin & hole mount (maybe still factory though). Use hair dryer to heat glue and fishing line or dental floss to slide under and remove (back and forth motion). Saw those someplace? https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=v6+car+emblem, just replace both sides with almost identical. Will remove anyways when new paint is applied sometime......

Thank you Rich,

I saw everything on your suggest on Ebay, but I can't find the exact format V-6, do you think it is original, or later put on the car instead Buick badge.
Thank you

Your welcome Bshopov. I would say those were an afterthought especially with placement. From the little bit I know of Buick an engine moniker should be in the hood area if at all. Not sure but not aware of any "Supercharged" badges on those models or display with 4 cylinder versions. Well too nothing on mine (V6 also) and seems that would be ubiquitous.

But can never say never either. Will take look for all Buicks showing V6 logos, back soon. Don't see anything but here's similiar back in '68. This model, California Special was actual, note GS on roof pillar.

Here's another example showing, can't recall if it was engine CID or torque rating but on front fender side panel anyways.
