'68 SS396 Dash badge? Not looking period correct?

So my brother is finally putting his '68 El Camino back together.

The car has recently been painted and now he's back at it, reassembling his ride after a 20+ year hiatus (yeah, better late than never). Can anyone identify what badge went here? I have looked at multiple interior shots and have not seen anything here. Does anyone know if there was a factory badge in this location? Or did some 'creative' former owner add something here at some point? Any insight would be appreciated!

A badge that says "ASTRO VENTALATION" ?

I thought those were just on 69's... but maybe on 68's too?

Mine has AC but doesn't have any badging under the dash pad except the glovebox strip.Mine is a early build and has some different things than a later build. I have the foil 396 badging outside and has SS396 on the horn cap. They did change some things during the year and I think also where it was built.Those don't look like factory holes from using a punch. Those look like hand drill holes.

@RAMBO : The Astro Ventilation idea looks promising and seems like near a dead match where the badge would go.

@elco68 : Not sure if the holes are drilled or not, but the middle pin is a much smaller locator one in the aftermarket badge I saw. My bros car shows them all to be the same size.

In any case, at least he has something to chase down now.

Thanks guys!
