    can you post pics?
    I want to see what a grand US sun visor might look like.

    If it's new in the box, it's really a 4-$500 sunvisor with a 1K price tag on it. But hey, if they can sell it for that, I guess they've gone up.

    I'd like to see that, too.

    I don't know if it's overpriced or not, but I DO know I bought one in 2010 NOS still in the box for $400 and thought I overpaid a little. A 250% increase over 8 years seems excessive.

    If you are shopping for a friend and taking into account your title to this thread, if this visor is for a '52 or '53, then you will need the visor with the longer side brackets, not the shorter ones, which will not work.

    Thanks for the pics. Is it aluminum or steel? Is it a karvisor, or fulton, maybe?

    Definitely a Hudson stepdown visor. Those are the small brackets and won't work for a 1952 Senior car (Hornet or Comm8). BentMetal here on the forum makes the longer brackets out of stainless, if you cannot find a pair. My earlier comments still apply.

    I DON'T think, however, that the pringles can was part of the NOS package . . . originally. ;)
