  • 39 ford deluxe grille

    Hi. I am looking for a 39 ford deluxe grille. I see at shows and everyone's pictures they look to have new grilles. Where are they getting them? I have searched and no one seems to have a good grille for sale. Our original is in bad shape car was wrecked at one point , we purchased a grille and it's poor quality the center chrome bar won't even fit it. I see a lot of cars with what looks like new grilles and new chrome strips and I can't find anyone that sells the grille and the chrome is always on back order. Any input is appreciated.

    Bill, most 39 Deluxe owners straighten the sheet metal and then have the stainless strips straightened and polished. If you bought a reproduction grill and it is poor quality, send it back to the vendor, explaining your problem.

    You can advertise for a used grill on the following sites, at no cost:

          Where to find parts
          by STOOZE
          I just purchased a 1951 Ford Deluxe or Sedan or Custom. My point is that with so many names it is difficult to know exactly what the car is. How does one find out?

          Why Chrome Bumpers
          by copgib
          I have noticed alot of Model A owners put chrome bumpers on their cars, it it because they prefer the shiney look? I would prefer Stainless Steel so it would last longer. Any ideas or input would be appreciated.

          Chrome vs. Nickel on Bumpers?
          by Pklarkin
          Hi all,

          This might be a "rookie question", so my apologies. I'm restoring a 1929 Business Coupe and the bumpers are out being replated. They called this morning to ask if I wanted chrome or nickel. Which is best?

          Thanks for any insight you can provide. As always, greatly appreciated.

          Took the plunge 1935 Ford Deluxe Convertible
          by Rdelvalle
          So I finally found the car I was looking for. It is a beautifully maintained 1935 Ford Deluxe Convertible. The car had been with the family, I purchased the car from, since the early 1950s, 60+ years. Now the fun begins and the trip down the rabbits hole starts. I have plans to do many things to the car....

          Chrome gear shift lever and emergency brake handle
          by greenhornet
          Were the lever and brake handle chrome plated on the '31 Deluxe Model A as vendors lead you to believe? The picture in my original not reprint manual shows what seems to look like chrome plated. I just wonder if reproes are good quality or would it be better to chrome what I have as original. I just don't even see a speck of old chrome on my originals just old black paint.I striped and still do not...

          170-B Deluxe
          by Brubaker
          Before I get too ahead of myself, where does a 170A-B Deluxe land in terms of rarity? 'Not hard to find'....'Don't see many around'? Drivable original, barn-stored for 10 years for this example. Not fishing for value, more of an availability question.

          Early Ford Model 20 Charcoal Grill
          by Tnardyh
          Going through my fathers house after he passed, I found a Ford Model 20 Charcoal Grille in original box. His Dad, my grandfather, had a Ford Service franchise or whatever prior to established sales and I have been told. Does anyone know their worth or collectibility? I can send pictures or post them if there is an interest. In Keene, NH.
