That grill was a nice find!
Just another kool hot rod piece for your Hemi roadster build!
Cool Grille !!!!
That makes 3 of us. Kind of homely looking anyway.
It would be interesting to see a NON Ford Winter Front bar to see if it is the same shape. If they were rolled out, or stamped using the same die would keep production costs lower. Bob
There may be one that is the same, but the ones I have seen were different.
apparently a 1931 reo winterfront grill has the same bars, there was one on ebay the other day, i sent the guy a message but never got a response
Thats the guy i emailed and no answer back, theres also a 36 packard grill on ebay that i emailed about, the bars look like the same shape and contour but just shorter, could always weld a couple together to make on bar
Would it be this one ?
no thats not the one, bars are different
I believe it was Grille Art that had the new winterfront at the LARS
well I found the parts I needed for my grille and got the chrome surround piece fixed and rechromed
The winterfront turned out nice,,did you make the missing bar or find one? HRP
Bumping this up, I'm curious as well as I need a bar to replace a missing one on mine.
Gee why not complete the set-up with a electric dip stick that heats the oil, a sun lamp in the engine compartment to keep everything warm and toasty and last but not least a set of snow tires with chains. I am only kidding, I would sell it and get a blower. Now you have what every 32 restorer wants but you started off with crap and made it into a functional unit - good for you!
Personally I've always thought they were neat & different from the norm although becoming more common place to those who can afford one, It is neat in ways even beyond the fore-mentioned due to the fact it remains a genuine, era accessory made specific to the ever beloved 32 grille shell, & is beyond neat as it incorporates a clever mechanical function & of course that colorful Pines badge if so equipped further complements the era.
We might never know. The OP hasn't been seen in over 5 years.
Winter in Florida? That's an oxymoron! Your coldest day would be like a spring in S. Saskatchawan, especially if the wind is blowing
