    Vintage 1935 Ford 1/2 ton pickup grill shell in fantastic original survivor condition. This is a true original 1935 grill, thin side profile. ( 1936 pickup grills look the same from the front but are much thicker on the side view). If you're looking at this you probably already know all this stuff.
    -This grill will fit a 35 or 36 Ford 1/2 ton pickup.
    -No rust pitting, no rot issues.
    -Not chopped-up or modified
    -No repairs, fillers, or bondo.....just an original grill shell
    -The paint looks to be original patina'd paint. It does not look to have been repainted at any time.
    -The overall grill shell is incredibly straight, all mounting holes are intact, 2 having suffered tear out (see pics). The shell is not twisted and there is no major damage (see details about the chin, below)
    -Vast majority of grill bars are straight, none are missing. Crank hole is slightly bent to one side (see pics)
    -The lower chin is in incredibly good condition. The chin on these grills is usually badly damaged or hacked off. All of the chin metal is intact and suffers very minor damage: A split at the center, and some metal folding. Repair to this chin will require minor metal working skills. None of the chin damage is visible when the grill is mounted on the truck.
    -All mounting flanges are very straight and intact. Very minor massaging of the flanges may be needed to make it mate to your fenders.
    -Grill includes the "V8" badge, beauty trim ring, and Ford emblem
    -You can use this shell "as-is" for your patina'd 35 pickup. A perfect shell for a restoration project

    These 35 grills are nearly impossible to find in this type of condition. I have only seen a few better examples for sale in over a decade, and they were much more expensive. I have owned 3 of these grills and sold one in much poorer condition a few years back. I have owned this shell for about 10 years.
