My thoughts.

Bumpers - 51 Plymouth, 37 DeSotoe, 36 Buick. Any of the ribbed designs.

Grill - possibly use openings similar to the lower grilles of the 41 ford (except a bit bigger and more rounded with an extension of the hood that drops to the top of the original opening and the gracefully curves inward to a narrow bar between the grilles. You could make up the grille bars from round or square bar and sink them into the opening so they float there.

The pic of the 41 Ford is from the carnut site.

Another interesting treatment would be something similar to cefolar's ride.
