      True, Dick; in which case it might simply be an aftermarket "custom" grill of some sort, or even a cheapie aftermarket replacement grille for a Hudson or Terraplane application.

      I say this because, on closer examination, it looks like a cheap stamping, as opposed to a heavier, die-cast piece. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        I don't think all these era grills had the crank hole. I believe some were merely inserts in a metal stamping and sometimes the crank hole was in the outer shell. Also, some of the more expensive higher end cars were so proud of their "electric" starters they did away with the hand crank option.

        That grill on Jeff's wall reminds me of the ones in the old Divco delivery trucks, but I believe they had a more pronounced curve in their shape.

          That's what makes me thinks its British, or some other European origin.

            This grill is like BP states not heavy pot metal but some thin stamped metal but is pretty straight with one break on the top outer ring but easy fix, anyone interest for a wall hanger if nothing else? also have a rather nice 47-53 chevy truck grille with only surface rust, any one into these trucks need it before going to e-bay?

              The first picture is of a Willys 77 grille - from about 1933-35, or there abouts. That would be my guess - but measurements,and someone with a Willys would be able to determine that for sure.

              It would be worth $$ to someone.

                Yes Roy here they are 30" high , 20 1/2" wide at the top and 16" wide at the bottom before curving to point.

                  You are way off with the Willys guess. I owned several pre-WWII Willys cars and that grille is not close to any from 1933-42.
