    Hi Folks,
    I just bought a 34 and the grill that I am attaching pics of came with it. It is not original and I am looking for help to identify who made it as it is quite old based on how long ago the car last was on the road. A buddy of mine says Early V8 Shoppe. Car was last driven/worked on in 1972. Any ideas? I have a beer bet on it with him.

    Thats right but it will still work. You can tell by the flat crank hole cover its import.

    Back in the day Argentina (msp) flooded the market with 34 & 36 ford look kinda like grills. The spot welded bars give it away.

  5. I have the same one on my car. It's horrible, but it will work until I can afford a nice original. You gotta do,what you gotta do sometimes. I was going to put a crankhole cover on it to hide the weird lookin' crankhole. I think that would help a little, but overall, just still a shitty repop.

    Thanks guys. It is like a crappy paintjob. Not bad from 20 feet away but when you get up and close, it ain't nice.
    I have no need for it. Is it worth putting on for sale or just make it a conversation piece by hanging it on the wall?
    Thanks again. Beer is on my buddy.
