Re: [FWDLK] Front Fender Gunsight Parts



I have one NOS "gunsight" for the 57-58 Dodges, Mopar part #1754146, if it is in the correct original box.  Mopar calls it a "Name Cap".  I think both 57 and 58 are the same?

Yes, that is the part.  Sort of like a front gunsight for my .45....

  Are you talking about the little center piece of the headlight “eyebrow” ?

  You must be pretty good size.  My close quarters/rapid fire qual scores for 40 and 45 could 
never break 10 out of 15 rounds fired.  With a 9, I consistently land 13 or better.  The recoil 
time is just too much on the larger bores for my 5-9/185 build.

Brent, The Dodges had the item in the middle of both front fenders.  I have 57, 58, and 59 Coronets and both the 57-58 have them centered at the top of both front fenders.  Looks like the front gunsight on most automatic pistols, including my favorite M1911, .45 cal.

57-8 Dodges had fender top “gunsight” ornaments ?  How did I miss this ?

DeSoto Fireflite/Adventurer, yes, optional on Firedome.  None on Dodge-based Firesweep.

Plymouth had 2 versions, el cheapo and fancy, depending on model.

Chrysler, optional on all but 300.

Dodge ???  Never seen such a critter.  Maybe it’s an Alzheimer day for me ?  😜

Is anyone producing the front fender gunsights for the top of 57-58 Dodges How about for other Forward Look Mopars?  Do the Chrysler, Desoto and Plymouths have similar fender items on the top of front fenders that were pot metal and now are missing or just pitted and nasty?

If not, has anyone researched or have any interest in producing or researching having these reproduced? It seems every one that I see is either missing or really pitted.

What are they worth NOS, and what would a reproduced set be worth? Just frustrated with the lack of reproduction support for Forward Look Mopars......
