Hi!
Look at this Grille on 39 Coupe Express! Is this after market? Looks Original! Blue Trk is one in question & Black Truck is mine & the one I usually see on 39s Tks! Bill

Don't quote me on this, but they are both stock. One is a 39, the other is a 40. Or one is a Champ, the other is Commander…. something like that.

The grille in the blue truck is a '40 Commander/President. They will interchange with the '39. The '40 has the vertical AND horizontal bars and is much heavier. My '40 president below.

That 40 grill looks pretty restricted for air flow to me. I love the looks of the 39 grill, but the long skinny grill bars do bend and break easily.

If the airflow is restricted, you just gotta go faster, eh??
