    Thought I'd share this grille idea for the 58 fords. I sold my 58 ranchero project a while ago. I bought an NOS Cal Custom Tube Grille that was marked 49 ford, and upside down it came close to fitting. When I bought the ranch, I knew that was what it was for. With the cross bars removed,I think it looks great in front of the stock circle background - - busy but different and interesting. Car's long gone and now I'm considering letting the grille go too.

    don't know on the squarebird.
    Here's another idea: Tube griles for the 70's & 80's pickups are tall and wide and cheap at the swap meets. Cut and bend to shape - screw up? who cares it was cheap
