    1937 Chevy Pickup Grille

     



    I am currently building a 37 chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I bouth it in pieces. I have an original grille (in pretty good shape). I also have a fiberglass front grille shell (doghouse). My problem is that the grille doesn't fit in the shell. I know the truck and car grilles are different, and I don't know which I have.

    I am hoping that the previous owner purchased a truck grille shell, and acquired the grille which is actually for the sedan. I will buy a new truck grille, but I don't want to buy the truck grille if I actually have a sedan front grille shell.

    Is there anyone out there that can tell me how to tell the two apart??? Any info would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks, Scott

    Thanks for the information. I thought I talked to chevs of the forties, but I didn't. Spoke to other places and got some good info, but none to make a positive match. I sent an email to chevs of the forties yesterday. Guess we will see. I did confirm that the truck grille is longer. Chevy 37, If I could get a measurement, it may solve the problem. Let me know, and I will post a soultion in case anyone else needs the same info someday. Thanks Again

    This is the best I can give you. I have a special shroud over the bottom of my grill which is a pain to take off.
