These chrome hood ornaments were exclusively tooled for GMC trucks and have no similarity to the Chevrolet style. They are made up of three attached die cast pieces to create the finished product. Their slim base secures to the center of the hood divider strip.
These were dealer installed GMC accessories. As trucks at that time were mostly for work responsibilities, few owners had an interest in appearance options. Thus, these hood ornaments were rarely seen on trucks when new. Locating new or restorable unit 50 years later is almost an impossibility
