57 grill anyone?

Hello, I have been trying to build my truck, the grill is holding me up? My truck is a 59 F-100 but I want the 57 front end on it. Does anyone know where I can get a decent one? THanX so much

remember you need the full '57 front clip, not just the grill. The '57 has different fenders and valance panel, remember the '57 has round turn signals and the '59 has square.
Also not sure if a '57 grill will bolt up to '59/'60 fenders.

I have a '57 hood on my '59 which I think looks pretty slick but it all depends on the look you're going for.

I have an extra '57 grill. I'm not sure if I want to part with it yet. It is in pretty good shape, it has one small tear in the metal obout an inch long and one of the fender extensions is seperated from the grill but is easy to rivet back on. I checked out your gallery and saw that you already have a complete front clip from a '57 (minus the grill of course). I also noticed that you are in NY and I am in NV. A little far for a parts run lol. Your build looks good. Post some pictures of your truck. Love to see '57-'60 trucks in all stages.

You might try Mid-Fifties F-100's in Golden Valley, AZ. She has a few trucks sitting around the front of her property that she might be parting out. Can't find my catalog with their # on it. Google it.

Nice 58/59/60 FRIDGE 4X4 down the road from my Ohio house. Hope to see if it can be bought this spring.....it is behind his garage and has not moved last year, but is from Nevada and was clean when he and I met.
Need to learn the years of the fridges better.....LOL

South California as a matter of fact.
I have 3 grills so far and if I combined them all I still don't think I would have one good one. Sorry. Oh and, only 2 inner fenders - the ones on the truck.
I looked at the photos in your alblum. You do some nice work!
I tried starting one and couldn't get it to work.

F250racer - I agree, the '57 hood looks great on your truck.
