  • 55 grill inner color ?

    I am getting the grill ready to install back on the front end of the 55. If I remember right, the inner part of the grill should be silver in color. Is this just a flat silver color?

        My unrestored 55 Conestoga has a dull silver in the inside of the grille

          I have a complete NOS to install on my 55 K and it's silver/grey. The floating v for the grill is white/ivory around the sides.

            I painted the inner part of the grills on my '54 and '53 with Eastwood's Alumablast...


            It seemed to be a close approximation of the original argent used also on the 55's...
