    Saw some pictures of this bare metal chevy at the lone star round up this year, anyone know what grille is on it? ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1397842195.072001.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1397842205.201946.jpg

    Maybe a olds surround,55 ford parking lights, and homemade center bar?

    parking lights look like 53 Chevrolet to me. I'm going with 51 Olds for the upper grille and bumper.

    that's my 2 cents.

    X2 on the 53 chevy parking lights. Grill looks like a totally custom cutdown/fabbed and rechromed something or other.

    Definitely looks like an outer grille hoop and fender extensions off a 50 Olds with 53 Chevy parking light assemblies inside. Kind of hard to tell from the pic but might be the 50 Olds inner grille hoop cut off to fit between the parking light housings. Bumper looks like 50 Olds ends with something grafted in the center.

    I would think it's just a '53 Chevy grille bar with the teeth shaved off. If it isn't, that would still give the same effect.
  7. Upper bar appears to be be olds 98 piece and center is a stock 53 chevy with teeth unbolted and holes filled...rechromed.
