48 hood ornament plastic

Recommended Posts

There have been some on ebay, in colors even, but I think they are solid

and not hollow like the originals.

The guy I got mine from a while back indicated he

was not making any more........he was selling them for around $125.

They were clear plastic and hollow.

I looked on ebay and don't see any of those for sale right now.

If you have an old plastic that isn't too totally bad, they can be

polished some and made to look a bit better.

Lighting an ornament up is pretty simple. They did offer an accessory light kit in the

old days, but you can do what greg g did - I believe he used a side marker light

from the auto supply.

The lighted hood ornament looks really cool! Unfortunately I have a Dodge. Has anyone ever seen a light up rams head? I doubt it was a factory option, but perhaps one existed on the aftermarket. Any body have one?

Couldn't a two-piece mold be made of the ram's head and then cast in Lucite w/ a light behind? I simply don't know, but may be similar to the lighted Chief Pontiac.
