    Could be wrong, but I'm thinking Terraplane.

        That was my first thought also. Got any measurements?

          Not a Studebaker. Trust me.

            Looks early post-war British to me.

              Regardless of make...it would be a great candidate centerpiece grille for someone building a late 20's to early 30's Rod. Either plated or painted, flanked by a couple of pod headlights...that thing would be great. Hope it finds a home with a talented builder.

                Here's a pic of a (supposed) Studebaker COE (Ace) grill that is hanging in my shop.
                Never did the provenance on it, but it looks nothing like the OP pic.

                    Jeff; That is not a Studebaker either. At least the grille isn't. Someone attached the Studebaker name plate to the grille off something else.

                      Good to know.... I bought it for a wall hanger anyways....
                      So...Instead of a cheap Studebaker grille, I bought an expensive Studebaker grille badge
                      (If it had a plaque on it, I would have known)

                          My first "GUESS" would be a Studie cab over, No matter someone should fall in love with it.

                            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                            Ayn Rand:
                            "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                            G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                              I am thinking NOT. Cars of that era still had the opening for the crank at the bottom.
