Would like to see some photos of Corvette grills in '55 Chevy. Do they use the '55-'57 Corvette Grill, or the '58-'60 Corvette grill? Or do they just make a bar and mount the teeth?

If you don't wish to post, you may email:
C4 Corvette narrowed front/rear suspension, C5 13" calipers/rotors adapted to C4, Viper differential with Intrax 3.54 ratio (the snake has been charmed!), stainless tubular frame, LS1 with T-56, chambered exhaust side pipes

Speaking of Corvette grill's and '55 Chevy's.... In 1955, they actually modeled the "55 grill after the Corvette "egg shaped grill style." In 1955, the grill itself was said to be one of the only unfavorable pieces on the car because "it didn't have too much chrome on it." Hence for the '56 model grill, they added more chrome and widened the grill to go along with the "style" of the era. ......Sorry for going off on a tangem. ...

I have an old issue of Rod N Custom (I think 1991- 1992 timeframe) that has one in it. If I get a chance to scan the photo, I will post it.

Gene (and anyone else who wants to see this),
Here is the photo that I mention from the Feb. 1991 issue of Rod N' Custom.
