If it’s a stock ornament, it should have one wedge that holds both wings. I made a special tool decades ago and it was quite easy and if I can find the photos. I’ll add them here.

However, if your ornament has two wedges, it must be an aftermarket knockoff or perhaps a reproduction and the original was in potmetal, not brass and were fully chromed. Photos would help.

The hood may just be sitting in place but it doesn’t appear to have a large enough gap at the back to account for the overhang at the front.

If you have the flat glass cut locally, be sure to ask for polished edges. If you do not, they’ll be somewhat rougher and not only do not slide as well but they don’t look quite right either.

Oddly, the hood on the 1941 120 seems to be several inches longer than the sheet metal it covers!

Yes indeed, that is correct. They were often referred to unofficially as 120A.

The Henneys of the era were also typically on the 120 chassis but had 160 trim. My 1941 was a 120A but looked like a 160 which they also made but it was far less common.

Odd seeing a power brake pedal on the clutch side! My 1952 with power brakes and overdrive trainsmission had the standard clutch pedal as all did when ordered with that combination.

This 1937 Packard hearse appeared on eBay which, according to the description, has a body by a coach builder other than Henney. 1937 was the first year of Henney’s and Packard’s exclusive agreement so it is interesting to see one by Silver-Knightstown.

Also interesting the wheelbase of 158” as my 1941 was 160” which I had thought went back some years but apparently not.

Nice-looking car with a combination of 1952 and 1953 elements.

Good job, Chris! It looks very professional and almost “period” for your car.
