    This is a hood ornament found in a work shed of what used to be a small dairy farm. I have not found it in any data base for identifying hood ornaments. The red insert appears to be the same part used on 1949 and 1950 Chevrolets. All chrome parts fit perfectly and do not resemble any hood ornament parts that I have been able to find. I do not believe it to be home made. The ornament measures 9" long and 3 1/4" tall. Hoping someone can help identify its origin.

      Is the hole threaded on the top there. In the right picture
    2. kodybalody715, 3 months ago
      I am not sure which hole you are referring to. There are four holes in this ornament and all are threaded. Hope this answers your question. Thanks
    3. kodybalody715, 3 months ago
      If you are referring to the large hole in bottom, that one is not. There is a light socket mounted inside.

      The top view.. towards the rear looks like there is a hole ..where maybe something else attached to this?
    5. kodybalody715, 3 months ago
      There is a threaded screw there to hold chrome.

      Looks like a small boat running light

      I actually had that thought as well...
    8. kodybalody715, 3 months ago
      I think that may be a real possibility.
    9. kodybalody715, 3 months ago
      Thanks for your help. I am convinced it is a boat light.
