    Morning, posting from the near north of Ontario Canada. I have 1950 Ford Club Coupe that I am starting to rebuild.

    A mere shell of a former life, I have found out that this car has a unique past as I believe that the original owner was very proud of his Shoebox. When the '51 Ford was produced he bought all the custom accessories for his car that updated his car to the 51 package, including some accessories that were a "custom" touch. I didn't realize what I had until someone had posted a pic of an old ad with all the parts my '50 had

    The only problem now is that the grill teeth are gone. I ask the previous owner, and friend, if he still has the teeth, but he doesn't ever remember taking them off.

    The previous owner has a large stash of parts in his drive shed, so hopefully he has them hidden away. On top of that, it looks like one tooth would have been missing from when he bought the car.

    I would like to find an early picture with all of these accessories on a car. just to see how it would have looked new.

    when I'm finished I won't be running with bumpers and I think that these grill teeth would look awesome.

    I just have to find them!!!!
