Wanted - Savali Badge(s)

Post by HaydnW92 » Wed Jun 24, 2015 12:33 pm

Hi all,

I'm hoping somebody can help me find an original Savali badge/logo/etc for my Q4. I don't intend to cover the car in badges and whatnot, but I would like a Savali badge just as a subtle nod to the car's modifications and history. Like the one below:

One or two of these would be good too (not that I'm being greedy):

I realise how rare these emblems are, but I figured somebody out there must have some that they are willing to part with. (obviously I'll be happy to pay for them). I've been in touch with Van Lingen auto parts who say they can no longer supply them - not surprising really - and the only other option would be to have some custom made, which will be expensive and not necessarily identical to the originals.

Hopefully someone out there can help me... :D

Hi Hendrik,

That would be great, thank you. If you manage to find one in the future, i'll obviously be happy to give you something for it.

I realise I may be waiting for some time, but there's no rush! I just want the car to carry the badge of the people who turned it into something rather unique. :)

Hi there,

I got excited when I saw I had a reply to this topic - I thought somebody had found me a badge :lol:
It seems Savali is very unheard of in most countries, which is a shame as I think they did some really interesting stuff with various different Alfas for quite a few years. The situation is the same in the UK; very few Alfa people have heard of the company. To be honest, I knew very little about Savali before I bought my Q4 but I had a rough idea of what they used to do. I quite like the fact that Savali is not well recognised though - I think it makes the 'story' of my Q4 a bit more interesting :)

Hi Hendrik,

That's great news! :D
I'll send you a PM so we can discuss it further (and to see if I can persuade you to part with it haha).

In case you’re still interested in original badge/emblem used by Savali, suggest you have a look at Marktplaats.nl and grab the opportunity to buy these rare items

Thanks for the notification CarFan but I no longer own the Savali-engined car. Hopefully somebody else will see this and buy them 👍

I'm not sure, I know the metal 'S' shaped badge was but I'm not sure about these ones posted above. Having said that, if you had a Savali car of any age I don't think these badges would look 'wrong'.

For me Haydn, it would fit if it was for the 164. The S sure.

The SaVaLi batch was in the engine. Not on the car.

Outsider of Europe, the 164 S is equal to the QV (The L models where normal luxury models with extra options).
The S has nothing to do with SaVaLi. ;)

SaVaLi is rare indeed, since they mostly tuned Alfa's in the Netherlands...

I think you misunderstood my post. We aren't talking about the chrome S badge on the back of US-market 164s - we are talking about the badge that Fasani posted a picture of above, with the three coloured strips on the left side (though this badge is obviously worn). This badge is totally different to the chrome 'S' used in the US market (and perhaps some others).

Many Savali cars from the period had this badge on the bodywork somewhere - I have seen GTV6s, 75s and 33s with the Savali 'S' badge on the bootlid or on the front grille between the headlights. I don't know if Sam Van Lingen put them on or if the owners put them on some time later.
