220S Hood Star; replacing broken hood star
Topic Started: Sun Jul 16, 2017 3:03 pm (75 Views)

Hi all,

Several years ago I purchased a new hood star for my ’56 220S. I just now went to install it and find that my ’56 has an older style square mount rather than the spring mount style I bought.

Did I get the incorrect star (180 888 01 09) or do I need to also replace the base?

Hi Bob - welcome to the IPOG forum.

You could probably rig up the new star to work with your old mount, but you can still get the old style star from many vendors. First I'd suggest you contact Tom Hanson at the M-B Classic Center.
