Buick hood ornament investigation

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I got this hood ornament for my 1947 Buick Super and then realized it’s not for my car. I want to sell it as it’s in great condition but I don’t want someone to get burned because I mislabeled it. Can anyone tell me what car this is from?


it’s a bombsight like my Buick, but it’s a standalone bolt on, not part of a longer trim.... anyone know?

Hello it may be a aftermarket part , the Bombsight trim was a popular add on to cars that weren’t even Buick’s.The original ones will have a 8 digit part number cast on inside of base .The 46 ornament is different from later models as it doesn’t have the crossbar connecting the ring with inner rocket . I think they will interchange with 1947 to early 1949.

Notice how the use of the name Harley Davidson makes the price on items like these skyrocket.

Hah.  Yes, sell it as a vintage Harley accessory and you will get your money back and then some.
