Below the actual ornament it looks like it is a REO?

I'll be very surprised if I'm correct. I just saw the white cross and assumed it was a Swiss car. Did a quick search for Swiss-built cars from the 20's-30's and guessed it was a Piccard-Pictet.

It is not a Piccard-Pictet.

1ownerT, that must have been an aftermarket hood ornament made to fit '40s GMs. Either that or it was super rare.

That Hispano Suiza is a sweet car. I think I saw one of those (maybe that one) at Jay Leno's garage on My Classic Car.

Well if nobody's going to ask a question, I will....

When was the largest American unibody car first released, and what make and model was it?

Nope. Not a Chrysler, nor a '33.
