Default 1937 Ford grille stainless

City: NP
State: NZ

Need the 2 side pieces of stainless trim for a 1937 passenger car grille

Can buy the repros but nice to have the originals.
Thanks,
Chris.NZ.

swoopNZ,

Did you ever find the original side trim? I purchased the complete set of trim and the sides did not fit at all. Cannot be rebent because of the channel shape of the parts. Actually kinked one of them trying.

Chris,

Did you have an original grille or repro? Did you get original trim or repro?
Any problems fitting it?

The reason I'm asking is my '37 has a repro grille and I was unable to fit the repro side trim that was in the set I purchased. Now I'm in a quandry - not sure if I should try another manufacturer or if original trim wll fit.

I'm sure the repro sides will attach to an original grille.
