Cowl Identification

Hello all,

I've just joined up here and I must say this is a cool site . I'm from way down south in Australia. I've just bought myself a chassis, cowl and radiator surround. The chassis and radiator surround are '24-'25 dodge but the cowl i'm going to use I have no idea what it is and what year it is . This is where I hope you peoples can help me out. Below is the cowl i'm using. Can someone help me out with what it is.

Thanks heaps all.

I don't know what it is but I have seen my fair share of "odd" body parts being a Buick nut. The thing is, there were SOOOOOOOO many cars made in the twenties, it could be ANYTHING.

I had a grill shell one time that was a complete mystery to everyone who saw it. It became my mission to find out what it was.
I started going to google images search and typing the names of cars in until I found something that looked like it. Then researched it further by googling the marque clubs for prospective matches. It was time consuming and tedious but I learned alot. And I got 35.00 for that 23-27 Durant Star grill shell on Ebay. It's on a rat rod in arizona.

Your cowl looks like a dodge to me, but I wouldn't bet a nickle that I was right.
Hope this helps, Mikey

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
