anyone reading J.C. Whitney circa 1959 ?

I've had these breezies on my Ford since 1997 (picked 'em up at the Chickasha, Oklahona fall swap meet for $5) and have seen other cars with these on 'em, mostly circa 1959 autos, but I've never seen an ad for them.....?

They really aren't much more than sheet chrome with columns of holes drilled through for ventilation ? keep the grasshoppers from coming through the vent wings ? make cool "whoosh" sounds ?

I see them quite often at swap meets so I know they're not rare but I was just curious about who made/sold them.

P.S. I apologize for the sucky digi pic.
