Default 1936 Ford pick up grill panel

I have a 1936 Ford Pickup that is missing its grill splash panel. I can find the re-pop 1935 grill splash panel as picture below. With modifications, will it fit my 1936 Pick up? Or should I be looking for something entirely different? The pick up looks spartan without it. Through the lower one third of the grill, one can see the ground while looking through it.

Look for 36 pan. They are different. 36 is louvered, and longer. read that deeper.

Anyone have an image of a 1936 Ford pickup grill panel that they can post? Please? It will give me a better picture of what I still need, and I can share the picture.

I have no way of posting pictures. I do not believe the 36 pickup and truck inner grill panels are exactly the same, but I suspect they would interchange. The 37 pickup inner grill panel looks very much like the 36 but it is not with the "chin" piece not being the same dimension. I do not believe the 36 and 37 interchange. There is also a below grill piece on the 36 that can be really difficult to find.

Heres a run down of the inner grille panels(aprons) for 35 thru 37 commercial vehicles.

Thank you Don for the photos of the inner grill. Looks like if I were to make one, the lovers would be my biggest challenge. I have a parts request on the Wanted V8 swap meet Ford Barn forum. Hopefully something will come from that before I build an inner grill from scratch.

The missing inner grill panel has been found. Thank you all for your help in identifying my needs. Without your help, I would not have known what the part exactly looked like.

Glad you were successful. Now all you will need is the bottom panel that goes between the bottom of the grille front and the front cross member as 'oldandtired' mentions. Sorry -- dont have an extra one of those.
Maybe Don R will post a photo of that panel.

Don...I believe the pictured panel on the left is a 37 and the one on the right is a 36.

Oldandtired, I am under the impression that the 36 pickup had an early and a late shield. I have shown both. There was an early version 36 (67-16554) and a later 36-37 version (77-16554).

Don...The later version carries the 37 part number. It may interchange.
