Damn and I thought my prices were on the high side for the Grille center
$200 is going rate for 72 Grille,some want that with broken tabs and needs new paint
dam glad i got them when they where running $65-$85.00
I have 2 spares ,1 came with 72 GTS we bought as it had a black painted grille in it and he had the factory silver and black grille so I swapped cause it contrasted better on the flat black of car.
I also have a parts grille for the pieces of plastic to restore other grilles.
I may sell the grille out of the 72 Ranchero as I want to buy the custom Billet aluminum grille from Vegas HotRods
Still lovin' the Pyl 5.0! That was a genius makeover.
This one is cool too, little different then Vegas Rod Parts billet grille
How many gallons per mile does that engine get?
Not sure but it's about 2000 hp
545 Stroker with 871 Supercharger.
My friend Chris in Delaware owns it
It was home built before they were any aftermarket ones

The ones on eBay

Sorry got the last part of their name wrong but knew they were in Las Vegas,Nevada
No my buddy Chris said it was from company or person that was building and selling them years ago.
I call home built a person who builds a custom part 1 -2 times but less then a dozen.if you start mass producing even if its based out of a garage or shop behind your home it's a Commercial Operation as your selling them in mass to the public.
Usually there are jigs and tooling made to aid in making each one exactly the same.
"Home Built"or "Home Made" to me means somebody at home took some Aluminum, cut,bent & welded using basic tools you can buy,not special jigs or tooling made specific for mass producing a product over and over again.
I have made some Home made parts for these cars and even though I had a basic design the second one came out slightly different then the first as I made improvements that made the second easier to build and also easier to attach
The 1st A/C Evaporator Delete duct
1st had welded nuts for Lower blower case bolts.
The 1 nut was inside of the duct cover the other nut was on outer flange.The duct cover was shaped on angle on bottom
Second A/C Evaporator Delete Duct
Second case I modified original design.Bottom of duct cover was more straight across and L shaped thus exposing both holes for the lower blower box bolts.
I also just drilled holes and not welded bolts to make it easier to install and owner just use new bolts and nuts to attach
Close up of holes on flange for blower case bolts going through firewall
Flange was designed slightly different then the 1st I made
I made them from store bought tools,nothing I used was fabricated specifically to aid in production of this duct thus it's Home Built,one of.......
