FIN FINIS ('47 CADILLAC) (Rt 66 White Oak OK)
This chrome piece represented, in a sense, the beginning of the tail fin era. Here it's on a Cadillac hearse. The cut-out section at top would have held another light element, now completely gone. Only part of the lower light remains. The chrome embellishment remained in use until 1955 on some models, before the actual sheet metal began to rise--often topped with chrome trim.
