This is an original 1934 grill with factory, non-reproduction emblems... and is what the emblems look like for this model year. And yes, it fastens as was said.

Re: Thinking about selling the '34 Phaeton

I placed the value at... at least $40k. I believe $35k for the car is an extremely fair price. In this day, it's pretty much one of a kind. The vast majority in this condition got restored long...

Re: Steering Wheel

Dad knew his parts REALLY well. He labeled most of the parts he has as to what they are. If he labeled it NOS, it's indeed NOS. He had bought and sold antique car parts all over from Detroit,...
