Default Bermuda Bell?

I want to put a Bermuda Bell in my Olds. Who sells them?

Yeah, it's corny, but it's traditional corny.

If you're talking about the Hula girls made by the Bell company, Speedway Motors has them for like $15 or $20.
And I agree. Corny but still cool.

My buddy Frank has a Bermuda bell on his Caddy powered Deuce roadster. It annoys the hell out of my other buddy Howard.

Sorry, I don't know where to find one.

Had one on my first car, (a '50 Studebaker Commander 4 door) and think I paid around $10 for it in 1962. Would like to find another for a reasonable price. Saw two at the L A Roadster swap meet for $80 ea. Just a bit over the top of my budget.

I bought 3 NOS a few years ago and sold 2 of them at 150.00 each. Sold a used one about 5 months ago on ebay and it bought 150.00. Sent it to the guy and somebody stole it from his mail box. Seems to live in a bad part of town and mail thefts are common. Had it insured, but USPS wouldn't pay. The carrier remembered delivering it and said it was up to him to have a safe place for the mail.

I have one in my 1912 Ford, they were a popular accessorie 1900 - 1912 , never figured out how they became popular in customs in the 1950's. That $150.00 sale price is about adverage, don't know if the winners are Brass Car guys or Custom owners.

A guy had one at a swap meet last month for $65 but it didn't have a mounting bracket or the little "knob". Personally...I don't think they're worth the money the get at the Bay.
