Old Chevy Hood Ornament ?

By K1M_and_J1M

Hi folks!
I recentley came across an old Chrome Chevrolet Hood ornament that was hiding in the garage rafters and have no idea what it goes too?
It looks like it could be to a truck or car from the 30's or 40's? It's kind of big and roundish so thats why i am guessing the decade it was from.

Can any of you experianced older car fanatics tell me what this is to?
It is in the original box and is in great condition!
Part number is on the box too.
It must have been my grandfathers as i don't even think my late father knew it was there either. Looked like a block of wood but I reached for it and Wow! There it was. A brand new Old Hood ornament in original box.

So what do you think it could go too?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the heads up on looking for the Information!
I did finally Google it up and does go to a 1940 Chevrolet Sedan or Coupe.
I found out after the fact that the box is for the "Flying Lady" Radiator Hood Ornament and I guess Kims Grandfather took the stock Hood ornament off when new and replaced it with the Accesory Flying lady Hood Ornament and put the original one back in the Accesory box.
I sold it on eBay for $110.00 and the new owner was extremely happy with it! Glad it went to someone who could use a like new almost 70 year old Factory Hood ornament!
Thanks for all the replies!
Appreciate it!

Part # appears to be on the box. Call Chevrolet and ask them to look it up in their NOS catalog.

Thanks Jerry!
I think your right! Just not sure of what models it came on. I'm not very familiar with the 40's era cars!
