The hood ornament is 17 1/2 inches long and 2 3/4 inches wide at its widest point. The nose of the hood ornament is clear plastic of some sort,hollow and it appears it was made to have a light inside. Help?

    It is possible that it is an after market item.

    Thank you for your comments. The only other hood ornament I have is one for a 55 or 56 Chevy with some pitting.

    Thanks all for your comments. I will have to sell the item as a mystery hood ornament.
