Trophy Ornament 1958 Pontiac Paperweight
This is a nice vintage 1958 Pontiac (customized) style sports car trophy or paperweight ornament. It is detailed much like a "58 Catalina, but with a shorter wheel base, and a more rounded roof. It was part of a collection of cast hood and trophy ornaments we are presently listing for sale, most from the mid-1900's to 1980's era. This one is not marked by the maker. This one is die cast metal, and the metal seems to have plenty of nickel or pewter in the alloy as there is no rust present even though is the not chrome plated. It weighs about .7 pounds and has a port hole on the bottom, and you can see it is basically hollow inside, not solid metal. The casting is 4.6" long overall, and about 2.7" tall (not including the threaded stud. The casting nicely cast, no pits, or voids, smooth surfaces, a few tiny imperfections, that could be polished out. The threaded stud is well attached. Would make a nice vintage trophy, or desk paper weight!
