    The one on my 75 imp has an oval base instead of the square one like yours. I could be wrong but I think 74 and 75 had the same hood ornament so I don't know what year yours is.

    Could be from JC Whitney, They had that style back in the day.

    Aftermarket copy of the 74/75 ornament. Square base is a give away. Factory one was oval.

    Might be a '61 - '63.

    Nope, smooth and much bigger outer ring and eagle, oh and no cheap loop at the mount, they were attached with machine screws.

    Well it looks like everyone thinks it’s fits a 75/76 Imperial and that it is an aftermarket piece. Now that I know this, what would it be worth?

    Well considering the little loop at the bottom is broken it’s kind of useless as a hood ornament but the good news is it probably has the same value as a collectible trinket. I’d say 10 bucks.
