After going cover to cover on the November issue I filed it on my library shelf and it hit me.. That hood ornament, I've seen it before !! On a Harley Davidson.. Was that a Stude accessory or production piece??

The owner does say in Turning Wheels that the ornament is of unknown origin. :confused:

It certainly does not look like anything Studebaker had. But it is a mystery why anyone would use it to replace the much nicer '47-'49 Champion "Rocket" that came with the Truck.

I guess what is interesting is, does it actually FIT that crown on the hood, if so it might be some sort of Aftermarket piece made for it. :ohmy:
