    I like the look of the A grill on my coupe … but for potential future fan placement [sorry]…
    I grabbed a couple '37 truck grills to narrow and chop... any pix of a '30-'31 coupe with a '37 truck grill out there.... ton of work for me to cut one to see if I like it... thanks ! DSCN4392.JPG DSCN4390.JPG

    I think that a '37 truck grille would clash with the lines of a Model A. It slopes where the Model A has lines that are strictly vertical.

    Perhaps it would be a good idea to ask the fellows at the photo shop thread to put together some samples before you spend any money.

    Wish you guys would leave those 37 ford truck grills alone. They already are a bitch to find.
