Default '37 Chevy car and truck grill

I am assembling my 37 coupe which came to us all apart. The grill seems to be about one inch to tall to fit in the grill shell. Got on line and looked up the two grills but no one gives dimensions. Does anyone know what the dimension or physical differences are????

The truck grill is wider and taller than the car. I don't have a '37 truck any longer, so I can't tell you the measurements of it.
1" sounds like the difference, so you might have a truck grill.

My coupe measures 21-" at the widest part and 32-" at the tallest part. I'm measuring it as it's mounted - to the outside edge of the stainless molding.

Thanks TagMan for the measurements. I can check tomorrow and see what mine is.
And Rusty, it is a aftermarket grill. It says it is USA made.???
