This is the factory-correct hood ornament

I have seen on this era of Nashes.  Note that

Those Nash hood ornaments were styled by George Petty, famous at the time for his cheesecake 'Petty Girl' fashions.

I really like these Nashes - I think that the appearance of this one could be helped by removing the fender skirts.  If it were mine, I would consider getting rid of the whitewalls.  It seems like the wheels and tires appear too small for the openings.

I have a soft spot in my heart (and possibly in my head) for Orphan makes, but have always found Nash styling really odd - it's like where Hudson during this time got it right and was more sophisticated and polished, and Nash was the homely cousin that didn't get to the same level.  
 

I've always thought those hood ornaments on them were made out of sympathy for the Nash owner, as no girl who looked like that in real life would likely ever choose to take a ride in one 😉
