  4. The lower right side looks as if it might be hinged. Like a gas door or concealed headlights or something to blend in with dash vents. But the "vents" are definitely blacked out and not real holes...
    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

  14. OK, is it the grille of some large 80s Olds or Pontiac from when they were really square and the noses had that wide center section painted body color, maybe a Delta 88 or a Bonneville?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh that is funny, posted that and then saw you guys had a Hurst Olds posted on the site! I don't think the grille matches though.

  16. GOT IT!

    It's a 1976 Olds 442. I swear Vince didn't tell me the answer. KBZ's guess above sent me sniffing down the right trail.
