I need some help.

I have been told that the correct hood ornament for a 1932 Packard light 8 900 Series coup roadster is the Goddess of speed.

Some have said it is the bird with the high wings which is named after a water bird.

So then which one is correct

Thanks confused.gif

The Goddess of Speed was introduced in 1926, the pelican/cormorant/water bird in 1932. I believe they were both extra cost Packard Accessories, with the plain bail cap being the standard equipment. So either of the three would be correct on a 32, only the donut pusher or the bail cap on the 31. BillP

The Bail cap was the standard ornament (plain cap with a raised rib held in place with a bail wire). The Pelican (Cormorant), The Godess of Speed (a/k/a Doughnut Pusher) and Adonis (a/k/a Daphne at the well and sliding boy) were extra cost options in 1932. All are being beautifull reproduced by American Arrow.
