not be compatiable to your 47.

Thanks for the offer. My 55 is a 317 Y Block. There should be a pair
of the brackets mounted on the top of the right hand inner fender well.

If they look like they can be bead blasted and cleaned to perfection
please scarf them up for me.

Happy hunting.

I did not see that hood ornament but, There was one as a option. It is a
airplane, about 6" long. I pulled one off a 53. Does anyone know what years
these were offered?

Not sure about the earlier ones, but the 48 - 50 are different from the 51-52.
Actually they changed in mid 50 sometime. The 48-50 have the embossed panels
on the sides, the 51-52 are flat. Tailgates and their chains also changed,
but I can't remember when off the top of my head.
A pricelist I have lists 42-47 rear fenders separately from the 48 - 50,
and from 51-52. 'Nother catalog lists box sides from 32-50 together, front
panels from 42-50 together.
Keep looking for definitive info on whether 42-47 are the same as 48 -50,
but they're NOT the same as 51-52.

We should find a suitable hood ornament from an existing vehicle, and
therefore have an official hood ornament.

With a radar detector built in. (I live in the peoples republic of
Virginia, where they are still illegal).
