Vintage LONG JET AIRPLANE HOOD ORNAMENT 3 Mounts Plane! - eBay (item 310014978509 end time Jan-21-08 18:08:57 PST)
This vintage chrome jet airplane hood ornament once graced a car, but I don't know what make or model. Inside it's marked "BM-16853-C" and "10369". Under each wing it says, "1/4 28."
The finish is cloudy and pitted on top and has pitting in the underside fuselage. The screws and nuts are here, ready to be mounted except the nuts need oiled and unfrozen. If you get it re-chromed, you're good to go.
It's huge, measuring 17 1/2 inches long and 10 inches wide. When bolted to your car hood, the nose is upraised as if the jet is taking off.
