hood bird on 1955 chevy wagon

Jet Age

Project Date of completion: Fall 2013
Project Client: Larry Griffey Hot Rods and Sheri Tracy

Automotive design in the 1950’s was heavily inspired by the jet age.  The appearance of everything from tailfins to instrument clusters had a direct connection to jet planes.  This was even visible in the hood ornaments too.  Sure it might look like a bird, but it’s definitely inspired by a plane.
