    Helping clean out some buildings of a family member and came across this. He has lots of model a pieces but there is other misc stuff that has gathered the last 60+ years he's lived there. Is this part of a hood ornament or something else all together? The center blue part is glass.

    They lool like the tips from fender guides that attached via short rods to the wheelarch lip of front fenders. Some would illuminate at night so you could see where the outside of the fenders were.

    '37 Ford, for sure. And definitely an accessory.

    Yup, '37 Ford accessory, square and threaded stem is the give away. One of several types that were available.
     
  6. It is similar to the aftermarket accessories for 36/37 Fords. HRP
