1955 Chevy Truck

Hello,

We're doing a frame off restoration on a 1955 Short Bed Big Back Window truck. What I need help with is if anyone has put a 1957 "teeth" grill on a 1955 truck. If so any hints? Has anyone else done this and been successful? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is our first restoration!

Thanks,
Michelle

Greetings,

The easiest way is to install 57 fenders that are for that grill, otherwise you'll need to modify the grill opening and latch areas.

Good luck with your project!

Never had the desire to put the '57 grille in the 55/56. I like the big mouth grill of the 55. But I have seriously considered putting the 55 in a 57, and using a 57 hood on a 55. I like the 57 hood with the two long bumps, rather than the smooth 55 hood.
I think the grille thing would require a front end swap.
