Mark,

one of the previous owners made one for my 782 out of wood. It appears to possibly have been a scrap of deck lumber. I think it adds to the character, but mine is definitely a character. Yours may be more of a looker.

I think I may craft my own wooden hood ornament from a better wood species before I install a correct one.

Good luck in your search.

I got one for my 782 off ebay - 3-D printed one. Wasn't perfectly smooth but after a coat or two of black paint it look good.

The same hood ornament can also be found on the Cub Lawn Tractors such as the 1320 and 1720. There are tons of them out there with bad transaxles. Also, the low back seats, ammeter, some switches, and rear reflectors interchange with the garden tractors.

It came to me with the tractor. It was not my idea, but I kinda think I may continue it by making another out of a more close-grained wood that should weather better.

I may have a hood ornament in my shop, can't remember how I acquired it. I'll post a picture later.
You're welcome to it if it is the right one.

Mark - if you were asking me my price, it's not for sale. I was just posting the picture for reference, so you know what to look for. Sorry for the confusion.
