Pretty sure this is the right forum, need help identifying this grill. Been searching google images and not sure what year/model it is from. Thanks for any help.

1954 Ford F100 and up

The "stripes" are called hash marks and were a 5 star add on. The 54 is the only year that had the vertical struts that went down into the valance panel. The V8 denotes the fact the vehicle had an 8 cylinder motor. The 6 cylinder motor had a 4 point star in 1954.

Are you trying to sell it?

What's with the emblem? I've only seen the V8 part, do the bars on the side represent something?

Was planning on refinishing it and wiring it up to hang on the garage wall. Now curious, what would the going rate for this grill, given its current condition?

I paid $100 for my rust free 54 grille and front valance. I've seen nice ones go for as high as $350-$400. If yours doesn't have any rust holes you could figure $150-$200 for the grille and valance.
