Looks like a great deal.. I sure like it . I thought the 57 Transtars had the fiberglass grilles in them .

Usually, I am not as offended by the term Rat Rod as some. However, in this case, it is a real insult!:( If ever, there was an appropriate vehicle for the title WARRIOR...this is it!:!::)

Who will be the one to follow the example of Chuck Naugle, to step up, take charge of this vehicle, and become the attraction of many future gatherings with an attention getter that has functional capability?:)

First of all... never, never, ever apologize. You'll only encourage the naysayers.
Just kidding of course.
But did anyone steal a picture of the tow truck? I missed it, but would love to see it.

What would a '57 grill in excellent shape be worth?

Anyone have a '57 grille in good shape?

Certainly JMHO, but I'd pay a significant premium for a '57-on truck having the '56 grille.

jack vines (who owned a '59 and never cared for the fiberglass grille and larger front bumper.)

I agree. I think the fiberglass grille was a garish regression in asthetic appearance.

I wonder if he'll have to extend that front bumper some to accommodate a '57 & up fiberglass grille.
