I need a gmc hood ornament. I believe they were from 1947 to 1953 on gmc only. It is the one that looks like an airplane. Must be in rechromable condition.

Good find, sstock

For a while this has been listed as:

"NOTE! This item is currently not available from our supplier, Call or email us to be put on our Wait List and be notified when it becomes available again. You will be called (no obligation) when the part is available."

No price given, as I recall. But, it would be good to get on the Wait List, if you want one.

Yes ,I've tried that already. The price in a older parts book is $299 . I'm sure it's more now. I can see in the picture that it's not exactly correct. The original ones tail section is a 2 piece, and the repop is a one piece. Still looking though. Let me know! Thanks

You may want to check out www.oldgmctrucks.com There is a Jeweler from Germany on that site, that is reproducing exact replicas of the GMC Hood Rockets, from chrome plated brass.
