Where are all the Chevy guys...this emblem is not to be found...I was at this site...http://www.pbase.com/steeleumc/anitq...ornaments..and someone wrote a post about this same emblem...puzzling???...anyways it does have a part number BLC 3695864. I'm wondering if it's a special order item. I bought about 25 hood emblems and this was one that was tagged 1952 Chevrolet???...maybe you 52 chevy guys can tell me it's not one..wondering if it's something else??

I just found this site also...look at the 1951 emblem post...I'm puzzled with the fact that it looks like the Impala...

I agree with you..but it's listed on 2 other website areas as a 51 hood emblem????.....I'm puzzle also...I have not seen a Chevy car with it mounted on the hood...plus if it's an Impala...they didn't have that out yet??

they call it a gazelle in my hood ornament book. and confirm it as a 51 chevy. looks like the part number should be 3695865 though. maybe a misprint?

I looked it up in three books, U.S. Hood Ornaments and More, Cars of the Fabulous 50s, and Chevrolet 1911-1985. All three books show '51s with the hood ornament, factory accessory. I must have the same hood ornament book madpole has.

There are three for sale on eBay right now; one is at $150

Found more info: Used in '51 and '52. Can carry part no. 3695864, 3695865, 3695866

Beating a dead horse here, but its a "factory accessory" like some 51's and 52's you could option for a butterfly steering wheel. They repop thoese hood birds and you can get them through chevs of the 40's or carshop.
