    Pentastar hood ornament question.

    About the pentastar hood ornaments. I have one that's crystal looking but has weather / age cracks visible in it.

    Were these ever available in real crystal or were they all glass?

    Information on them seems to be hard to find on the www.gargler.com

    Thanks

    I read somewhere they were all crystal till 1983, the Cordoba body Imperial was the last car with one.

    you could try to remove the oxidization with a headlight restore kit / plastic polish.

    The one on my 1983 Chrysler may have been glass, though it certainly was not plastic. I can't recall the model of it though. It was a stretched car, 4" longer than the normal K. Equivalent to a Dodge 600?
