Today we are excited to offer for sale a RARE and wonderful 1930s Greyhound dog mascot hood ornament/radiator cap! This elegant and iconic piece is finely crafted of metal with a bronzed finish. The radiator cap/hood ornament depicts a lean and majestic leaping Greyhound dog. The dog is affixed to a round and ridged base/cap. The piece is un-marked but of great quality and craftsmanship. This rare and hard to find ornament is in very good antique condition, with wear/oxidation and patina commensurate with age and type of use. We detect some minor distortion to the legs that appears it could be carefully bent back into shape if you’d even bother. Priced accordingly. Item sold as-is – ready for easy refurbishing. This is a rare and hard-to-find ornament from an iconic American car company! A great hood ornament for Rat Rods, or for any car or bike project in general. From a frozen in time New England garage. Fresh to the market!
Dimensions: approx. 5-1/8″ in height, 8-1/4″ in length, and 3-1/2″ in depth/diameter
