The Flying Quail, perched on the hood of the the 1930 Ford Model A, was one of the first Stant ornamental radiator caps. Henry Ford was an avid birdwatcher and suggested it, and even though he knew that Stant would satisfy his exciting demands for perfection in the functional performance of the cap, Mr. Ford supervised every step of the artistic design.  Some theorize that the quick takeoff of a surprised covey of quail was the reasoning behind the selection of this iconic mascot.

This is a press and twist bayonet style thermo-quail to see engine coolant temperature reading. How 'bout that!
