I am in need of some help in getting in touch with any antique or vintage truck clubs other than our own Studebaker ones . I am trying to identify a truck grille I have had marked incorrectly for years and now I am selling off all my parts it would be nice to know what this grille is off . Any help will be appreciated . I only know how to forward a picture on email and don't know how to post any pictures . Hence my sign off .

Hi Craig :
Will try this again . Tried your lead and that is the one for big rigs . There used to be a club in Thunder Bay called Old Heavy Irons . I am looking for one that is for 1 tons and below or one for custom built bodies . Any other ideas ?

The Antique Truck Historical Society events I have ever attended were not limited to "big rigs." When I have gone to their events I drove my Champ and there were a lot of pickups and the like. Of course there were also big rigs, but I never felt out of place at their events.

It looks like a 1964 Ford Econoline grille from what I can see of it.

Craig :
An after thought . I should have recognizes it I used to own a 64 Econoline with a pop up roof only mine had a front bumper. Yes it was a conversion camper . Yellow and white . But who can remember what vehicle they owned when they were 18 especially when that was 55 years ago ??Thanks again for the help I'll know who to call on once it warms up and I start moving parts around to sort between keep or scrap .

Ditto. Not just big rigs, and a great bunch of guys.
