This vintage pegasus horse hood ornament has unique orange wings that just glow radiantly in the sunlight. I have researched to no avail and cannot figure out what vehicle he was intended to be displayed upon. In fact, although I can find similar vintage chrome plated horses I cannot find one with wings unless its new. This style of prancing horse closely resembles Ferrari’s symbol or possibly even the Ford Mustang. I have seen other hood ornaments with the plastic or lucite wings that will actually light up if you insert a small bulb up inside of it but I am not certain if that is the case with this guy. He has two holes in his base for mounting. His one hoof actually sits on my window sill perfectly allowing him to stand upright and make a statement in my decor. (If he is not propped he will not stand until you mount him.) When the sun pours through the windows his wings just glow!
Condition: Fair condition. The chrome plating does show some wear/pitting. The wings show a few scuffs and there is a little roughness on the tips but overall they display great. You will notice that plastic shows some”stretch” marks through out.
Measurements: 10 1/2”
Age: Estimate 1960’s
