I picked this up today. I thought it was for an early Peugot but I could not find the lion ornament on their website quite like this one. Anyone know?

I dont know what it went to but I do know that they could be bought & put on any car or truck. It is defiantly a old one. Very cool smile

Don't know but my first thought was Jaguar. The head seems to large for that though.

Likely a vintage JC Whitney catalog piece. It's a generic hood ornament that could be placed on any vehicle.

It is definately old..Not sure how long JC Whitney has been selling these. It does have a part number C88A-16850. I googled it only to find 1 reference to another person trying to find what it was for. I guess it is like was said a generic hood ornament. Cool piece anways. Thanks

Its a 1951 Monarch automobile (Canadaian Merc) hood ornament. Worth about about $80 to $100, if you can find one. You did!
