definitelly from the USA ... and not for sale... I'm looking for some for my '53.. but think it might be "too late" for a '53 ?

Jules, I think it is something in metal to put over a wheel..?:omg:

Ok, it is a US spec wing but to young for a 53. The bump for the running board is not so pronounced as on a older wing that you need.

Looks like a post-1959 wing with a US-spec bullet indicator fitted to me! Headlamp bowl profile is mid-'57 or later and has a hole near the top of the bowl, hump on the top of the wing doesn't look pronounced enough for Oval-era and there is no 'flare' at the trailing edge of the wing (pre-August '58 feature). It could all be a trick of the light though, but it is notoriously difficult to ID wings without being able to touch them!
