I'm guessing this is probably a custom font but do you know of anything with a similar look with the hooks?

I believe this is Aldo Novarese's Egizio (1955), but derived from the original release.

Sadly, none of the digital versions seem to have the same nuance:

I can see the migration. This is none the less vary helpful. I appreciate your fast help.

Dongura, if I'd done my homework properly, I could have told you that the CA logo was designed by Freeman Craw, which means the original font was most likely Craw Clarendon Condensed. Sadly, I couldn't find a digital version that includes condensed, but these get you closer:
