  • 1950 bulletnose grille panel Champion/Commander?

    Hello all, I hear the 1950/51Champion version of the grille panel/nose panel is different from Commanders/or maybe even Landcruisers? IF so in what way? I thought the front was same for each yr. Please help, Will a 1950 Commander or Champion panel fit either?

    A '50 Champion grill panel should fit '51 Champion and Commander/Land Cruiser, vice verse.

    The '50 Commander/Land Cruiser is unique. Its' front end, from the cowl forward, is considerably longer than any other model.

    Differ in what way, they wont' fit, they are at a different angle of attack.

            Randall,
            You obviously got a "500 Error" when you submitted your post. You can go back and delete the duplicate posts (We've gotten used to that.[)])

            Your '50 center nose should bolt right in to the '51 grill panel. Fitting the '50 grills and "eyebrows" will require just a little fabrication.

                If you have a 1951, you can not fit 1950 front fenders. That would create more work if you really want to use 1950 Champion fender. You can use the door,and rear fenders from a 1950 and use on your 1951. You can use starlight 1950 rear deck lid but you would have to use the 1950 trunk handle. Trunk handle Hole patterns for rear 1950 deck lid diff. from a 1951.
