1957 Chevrolet Accessory Hood Ornaments

Sunday, February 2nd, 2020

General Motors was well aware of the disposable income increasing in the American working class in the 1950’s. The Chevrolet Motor Division offered more dealer accessories than ever before to take advantage of this economic growth.

One of the more unusual was a pair of hood ornaments created for the two ridges of the 1957 Chevy trucks (Some would say they were a take-off from those of the 1957 cars).

Created for the more deluxe 1957 Chevy ½ ton, however, they would fit perfectly on the larger truck hoods. The enclosed drawing is removed from a 1957 Chevy Accessory book of that year plus three color photos of the ornaments installed.

Soon to be available from Jim Carter Truck Parts
