    Anybody Familiar With These Winged Parking Lights?

    We got these off of our 58 Silver Hawk. The entire car was original, so we're figuring that these are as well. I saw one pair on a 57 Golden Hawk, and the wings were gold in color. That guy said that these are very rare. I am guessing that these are not gold because they were on a Silver Hawk. Can anybody shed some light on how rare these are, and what their applications were? Thanks!

    All 58 Hawks had the winged lights. Only the Packard Hawk had the gold wings. If you saw them on a different car.....they changed them.

    And 1958 was the only year that the Hawk lights had wings.

    You got to love the Sputnik era of Googie! Even the turn signals had tail-fins! :3
    1963 Champ "Daisy Stu Bludebaker"- sometimes driver
    1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
    1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case, next project after the Hawk
    1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
    1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case
