Default 1936/35 Pickup grille interchange

Simple question. Can a 1935 Ford PU grille be installed on a 1936 without changing the radiator, or lower grille pan?

The carrying different radiator Part#'s so I am wondering if the 36 radiator would interfere with the 35 grille fitment.. I know the lower grille pans are different as well...

I haven't tried it myself but I do not think it would work without changing both the grill and radiator, The radiator sits further forward on the 36, and the 36 has wider mounting surfaces on the sides than does the 35. Just don't think it would work, but it might be worth a go.

Bottom mount in frame is different between -35 and -36 radiator to...may need to drill holes in frame.
Maybe it works like a charm...or opening up a big can of worms...the joy of puzzling stuff together not meant to be...

You might be able to put a 1936 grille on a 1935 radiator... You WILL NOT be able to put a 1935 grille on a 1936 radiator. Also all the under and inner grille pans are year specific.
