Are you referring to part "O" in the image? If so, same part number for either year. 3701630 Part "N" however has different part numbers: 1953 = 3701635, 1954 = 3707844.

Ram_51,
Is there a diagram or something that shows the back side of the grille? Wondering if the center tooth has a bracket on the back side of the center bar like the two outer teeth do.

Sorry - didn't mean to hijack the OP's thread...

Jay

I did a little research as the scan I posted initially from the 1955 Chevrolet Dial-A-Part Collision Estimator did not answer that question. First I had to obtain the group number for the bracket[s] (or, as Chevrolet calls them, retainers) in question. The illustration below shows them...but it only provided the part number and only showed two. I had to go to another publication to get the Group Number. With that number obtained from the 1953 Ready Reference manual, I was able to look it up in the Master Parts Catalog. For 1953, The Master Parts Catalog show that 2 are required. So from that, I would assume there is not one at the center vertical moulding. Thanks for keeping my brain sharp working the manuals.
