What is this guy talking about. Maybe my computer is too small, but I don't see a hood ornament, and I've never heard of one on a Stang. Am I nutz or is this a joke I don't get?

I don't know if they made a hood ornament or not, but on the cover of the Hollonder's Part Exchange book, the cover has a picture of '67 vert. with a hood ornament. It looks like a running mustang.

The pictures of the car for sale on ebay are to choppy to see if there is a hood ornament on it.

Good question, was this maybe a dealer installed option?

I do not see it in the pic either, but there was an over the counter hood running pony ornament offered by Ford. Personally think it was hideous.

It's there but it looks like a smudge in the picture. He should have taken a closer picture. There is a picture of the hood ornament in the "Mustang Does It" book. It was a running horse, almost positive. IMHO, it's not a very good option, especially when you have to drill two holes in your hood to mount it.

Is it kind of like those horseshoe over the counter dealer things for the rear bumper?

I'm nuts right along with you... call me crazy, but I have never seen or heard of a hood ornament on a 65 mustang... I think someone stuck it on and told this guy it was a real rare find... doofus!

You should email that guy and ask him what he's talking about, just to see what he says.

PS: if you really squint you can almost make out a blurry thing on the hood..... odd, very odd

Yes... 65-66 mustangs had a hood ornament option. It was a dealer option. It is a long running horse the goes on the cneter of the hood in the front. Rare yes, tackey yes, who wants one? ME.. i have been searching for one of these ornaments forever. No one seems to have an unused one. I did see one on ebay a few months back. But it was a riduculous price. But to answer all your Q's yes, there was a 65-66 hood ornament.

There are more than one style too. There's the running horse like on the grill and one raring on it's hind legs. I think there's another one but I can't remember what it looked like. The running horse could be the only style originally offered by the dealer and the others offered aftermarket, I'm not 100% sure. I too have seen them on ebay but I haven't seen one in a while.

Since I'm and old fart I actually drove a 55 Buick Special as my first car. That sucker had a gunsight on the hood. It was about four concentric circles of chrome with a big "V" inside them. Great for lining up pedestrians. Now THATS a hood ornament!
