Okay, you have to take all of those iterations of the logo with a grain of salt. Most dealer decals are designed and installed by the dealer, often to
include the pinstripe decal that you depict. Often times, they adjust things in a logo in order to make things more legible and "clean" at smaller
sizes (both of those decals are quite small). Either that, or the company printing the decals adjusts them due to the tolerances of their capabilities
in printing. So, those differences are negligible and mean nothing as far as "proof" of anything concerning a Mandela Effect.
Concerning the water pump--That is a small (very small) logo that was obviously hand-engraved (in the negative, mind you) into the mold for the water
pumps. Those types of things, just like I noted above in the decals, generally get altered a bit for legibility and, quite frankly in this case,
probably to speed up the production of the molds (there was no need for engraver perfection on a part like this, as it was also stamped with part
numbers and such). Again, this is NOTHING close to proof of anything if you understand the process of these types of things. And I've seen this a few
times, as I owned a '66 Mustang from 1995-2014 (the same one), and I noticed many engravings and things on original parts that looked odd compared to
the actual logos. My dad also owned a 1930 Model 'A.' My guess is that the water pump is relatively old.
As far as the Ford logo goes, it's gone through a few different changes through its life, as depicted here below. Also--and in terrible fashion--Paul
Rand (graphic designer...IBM logo, Westinghouse logo, old UPS logo, etc.) proposed an updated logo for Ford, and happily, Ford rejected it. See after
the history of the Ford logo.

ETA: Well, I'm a little late to the game on the examples, but at least I provided the Paul Rand logo, which I'm willing to be most people have never
seen. I think that you're starting to understand that this is not "strong evidence" of anything.
