What year did Westfalia begin putting the WESTFALIA logo on pop tops?

early bays had logos of the prancing horse on the forward edge of the luggage rack on both sides

not sure if this carried over to the later style until they went with the big 'westfalia' text

I say, if you like the logo, put it on!

I put it front and back on my '78. I know it isn't "correct." And don't care.

Which is kind of funny, because I went to great lengths to figure out whether the logo is proper with the bottom corner of the L squared or rounded. You can find the reproductions both ways.

I decided that the rounded L is how it was shaped on the decals that were originally applied to Vanagons.

You can also find them in a reflective material, which I chose and like for being-visible-at-night purposes.

I assume you are referring to this logo?

I've got a 74, which is right in the middle, so I'm wondering if it also had the prancing horse on the luggage rack?

And Westyman, I know you're right about using the logo if you like it. It's not like everthing in my Westy is totally original. I do like the WESTFALIA logo and will likely get one, but I was curious about the history.

🤷‍♂️ This guy claims that this is an OG Ď71 and I donít see any stickers on it.

I do like the fan housing stamp. Just looked at the one on my engine and itís the same number and location.

Yeah, didn't read the whole thread, they all had a sticker of some sort.
That pic in the TCash quote is the 74-78 version and location on the luggage rack. (except some US delivered 76's, they had a special bicentennial version).

I was referring to the Westfalia word decal rather than the prancing horse.

I don't know when the horse logo made it's appearance either on the spare tire door or the luggage rack.

The word decal is the one most asked about and most applied incorrectly.

I think it is interesting that that offical looking sticker above has the pointy L in the big sticker, but the curved L is clearly visible in the Westfalia logo on the backing! (It is also curved on the pictured horsey logos.)

Back when I was attempting to determine if the proper L was pointy or curved, I looked at a bunch of Vanagon gallery pic at original/older looking logos (vs logos that looked recently-applied) and they all had the curved L. So I guess the curved L is more like original, but at some point along the way it became a pointy L.

This is a crisis! Shocked
I need these prancing stallion stickers on my 71 now!
Do they go on both sides of my luggage rack near the front?
I won't be able to sleep tonight...
