Out here on the left coast real nice 36 grilles are selling for around $1000. NOS ones are $1500-2000. If you can buy an NOS grille for $700 I would grab it.

It's the same one... I've told him I wanted it. Even called the number posted on another ad and PM'd him, but no response. I guess I have to bid on the damn thing now?

Thanks,

Seems pretty clear to me that I wanted to purchase it. I said I would pay shipping charges. That would indicate that I want to buy it. Its fine... I hope you sell it on eBay... I wouldn't trust you enough to send $700 to anyways.

Sorry I have agreed to purchase the grille offered by "Duece Lover." Would have loved to have it and gladly paid the asking price. But it was not worth the hassle.

My opinion is the originals did not fit that great. I have heard about 36 grills not fitting for years. It is like the 49 to 55 Chevy pickups. They were thrown together and had wide and narrow gaps all over the place. This is the way they were originally built.

Do not blame Bob, blame Ford. I doubt you could find two original grills that match a 100% out of two hundred. Then try the same thing with radiator, fenders and mounting brackets. You people are kidding yourselves. They did not have laser guided stamps, welders and gang drills in 1936.

I just reassembled my 36 tudor front end. I believe my grille is original to the car. I have an original "bullnose" trim piece and a Drake repop. I could not get either one to properly fit, although I finally settled for "pretty good."

After my own experience and reading all of the above, it seems that getting everything to fit is a crap shoot. I do know that I worked for more than a week to get all of the sheet metal to come together, sort of. That included running boards (new), fenders, hood and grille pieces. I think with whatever pieces you have or buy, you will have a trying time. Good Luck.

Now that about eight years have gone by, what were the results of the grill problem? I blame my exact problem on the Vintique emblem. One thing I did do was to cut the stainless center hing back and cut a piece off the side curtain hing. That made the ornament sit further back into the hood. Much better ? Yes but, the bottom of the ornament still sticks out about 3/4 inch. then I shimmed the back of the ornament up a bit, still NG. I blame most of the issues on the Vintique Ornament
Any opinions?

FWIW, just bought an original one and in very good shape from a very nice member on the barn, $500 plus the ride.
