Many years ago in the early 70's I went to a car show and saw, on a 55 Chevy hardtop, what appeared to be 55 Nomad eyebrows. They were not Nomad cast pieces but what looked like a stamped piece of stainless that actually matched up with stock Bel-Air fender trim like I have on my 55 Nomad. I never liked those big fat cast factory pieces. Has anyonr ever seen these pieces? I have never seen any ever again. I am sure they were not homemade. Where did they come from?

I believe someone used to reproduce those pieces in stainless years ago. But I can’t find any info. I’ve seen aluminum and brass as well.

Friends don’t let friends drive Fords.
