The grill in my 1947 3/4 ton Chevy pickup was pretty much toast. I don"t have the money to buy a new one, so an Amish neighbor and I built ne. It"s not quite finished yet, but is getting close. I know some of you "Originality" guys will hate it, but wanted opinions anyway!

I am rebuilding a 52 1/2 ton. I think your grill looks great. I like the idea of some custom touches that don't go too far. The other thing is Chevy pickups from that time frame a more than plentiful. These are not rare need to be preserved in original condition vehicles. These old trucks are made to have fun with.
