Engine is probably worth most of that $450 tho, in some markets.

Brian, last year he wanted $1,000 for it. He's dropped the price everytime he's relisted.

Is that the GT equivalent of a long horn Cadillac! "Works part of the time". He must be speaking of his brain!

Back to the original question. (what was he thinking?)

1-Shiney things sell.
or
2-Can't find the original grill, oh heck, I'll use this.
or
3-I really don't want to sell my Cub, but the wife said I had to. This'll solve that
problem.

I think the grill is from an old Gran Prix from the '70's.

It looks like it has a Ram embossed on it so I thought it might have been from a Dodge truck of some vintage. It does look like an old Pontiac grill now that you guys mention it. Man that sucker is Ugly!! :laughingteeth:

I'm not sure it's from a Grandprix, it could be for a Lemans. No, it's a Grandprix.
