    Im having trouble identifing this headlight ring. I thought it was early 50s cadillac but now im not so sure. what gets me from thinkiing its not is that the side peaks fade into the actual bezel. and on those cadillacs the side peak on the bezel goes into the sheetmetal of the fender. i dunno if its an aftermarket piece or maybe accesory headlight door for another car.

    On a wild guess.... I would say its an aftermarket 53-54 Chevy...... There were a ton of manufacturers of these products (Quick Custom Items) back in the mid 50 to early 60's

  3. A wild guess, but those headlight rings reminded me of some rings I saw on a Kaiser somewhere.
