Hudson hood ornament

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 22 February 2019 in Transportation.

This graceful feminine piece of chrome decorated the front of every Hudson. From this angle it appears she tapers down to a single leg, but I think there was a suggestion of both legs in the actual ornament.
