Hi
I've had this "hood Ornament for a very long time
just ran across it in my spare parts bin..
Don't know what year it is for.
Never had the wings. It does have a
factory piece inside, I have know idea what it is
for.
If your interested in it, let me know.
BTW. It is in good + condition. no bubbles
in the chrome
the under side was painted yellow at some time.
Best
How about a photo you say, I did forget to upload them
sorry
Also a steering column for a push button trans.
Can anyone tell me from what year this would have been?
As an aside, For those that need rust removal
I use Vinegar. good old 5% vinegar, $2.65 gal
at Walmart.. It does a great job. on small to
larger parts. The splash shield, fender skirts
rusty wheels.

looks like 22nd and 23rd series, 48-50. The loose piece may be the wedge for attaching the wings.

If you look closely at the underside of the long piece, you should find a part number. This could be from the 48-50 cars or for 51-52. Depends on the shape of the hood.

The ‘51-‘52 base had a different profile so this is clearly from an earlier model which had a smooth profile.
