I was looking at the emblems and considering touching up on my cars, one or more may be reproduction.
I noticed the red-white-blue bars behind the running horse on the front fenders of the two 66s are different on the passenger side.
One has the red bar in the front, as in blue-white-red if looking left to right, and the other is red-white-blue.
Which one is correct?

Mine are the same. Never noticed that before. I suspect its supposed to be red white and blue going from left to right regardless of side.

Originals from '66, If I hadn"t looked I would have swore the red should always be to the front/head.

Blue-white-red is the French flag, not correct.

Red-white-blue is the right one.

Early Repos had the RWB on both sides. My understanding is red to the front is correct for factory pieces.
