was it a factory option..cuase i see it on some and not on others?
yep factory option. can find plenty around for your year and newer, but the older models, they are harder to find. my opinion and many others will share the same, forget it. youll have to drill holes in the hood to mount it(and they wont be small). our hoods are prone to rust as it is. actualy i thought about this awhile back myself, but decided against it. but if you really have to have one, id find a good salvage yard hood with one on it already. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
no i was wondering. my 84 already has one on it. but since the hood looked like crap, and the one on my parts 85 was better i switched them so now the junk one has the ornament..but it was all painted over anyways lol.. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif
I have a Mirco-Machine military K5 glued to my hood! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif It's about 3/4" long and 1/2" tall. It looks a helluva lot better than the stock one too!
me and The General both have 89 silverados, his has one mine dont??
yea must be the origainal owner of one of yours had it and the other didnt. my 84 has it but i trashed the hood from it so..lol /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
got pics ? /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif
That's wierd... Was it a specific option or part of a package? I just started pulling stuff off an '85 that has one, but seems to have the same options as my '88, which doesn't have one.
no i think it was just a option..becuase both my blazers are silverados, and one has it and the other dont so..
I dont like hood orinmantes there like $80 for a new one and $70 for the the 6.5L
I'm not sure these were exactly options or not. I talked to a guy who has worked for GM for years and he has a very wide knowledge of all the GM vehicles that rolled off the lines.
I asked him about this and he said that he does not recall ever seeing that option on the order form list for those years. He does realize that some years, makes and models had them and others didn't. He thinks it was purely depending on what plant and assembly line the vehicle was made from and also the trim line, too.
Just one of those where the assembly line "put one on if you feel like it" thing. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
oo really!!?? hmm very intersting lol..yea that is kinda weird..i dunno i dont think it would have matterd what the trim was on it becuase i have to silverados and one has it but not other...but one is a 84 and other 85 so i dunno...but yea its not worht buying a new one i cant bieleve soemplace like LMC charges for that damn thing...unbielevable!! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
I know it sounds corny, but I have seen a hood ornament on a Custom Deluxe before! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif
arent those suppost to be like as barebones as you get trim wise?
