WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SAW ONE OF THESE FOR SALE?  WELL UP FOR AUCTION TODAY IS AN ORIGINAL 1932 FORD GRILL SHELL WITH AN ORIGINAL PINES WINTERFRONT INSERT.  EVERYTHING YOU SEE HERE IS HENRY FORD ORIGINAL PARTS, NO REPRODUCTIONS OR CHEAP KNOCK OFFS.   HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY.  


FIRST OFF IS THE ORIGINAL GRILL SHELL.  THE SHELL WAS FOUND SITTING IN AN ATTIC FOR THE LAST 40 OR 50 YEARS.  IT WAS IN NEAR PERFECT CONDITION.  IT HAD TWO OR THREE MINOR DENTS, THAT WERE DOLLIED OUT AND SMOOTHED OFF.  NO FILLER USED!  THEN IT WAS FRESHENED UP WITH A FRESH COAT OF BLACK PAINT.  IT LOOKS REALLY NICE AND STRAIGHT, BUT TO BE 100% ABSOLUTELY PERFECT, IT WILL NEED TO BE FINAL BUFFED.  


NEXT IS THE PINES WINTERFRONT GRILL INSERT.  IT CAME OFF OF A BARN FIND 32 3 WINDOW COUPE, THAT WAS SOLD AWHILE AGO, AND I ENDED UP KEEPING THE INSERT.  THE INSERT WAS IN PRETTY DECENT SHAPE TO START WITH, SO I HAD IT PROFESSIONALLY BLASTED WITH WALNUT SHELLS TO NOT DAMAGE IT, THEN IT WAS COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED.  EACH LOUVER WAS THEN CAREFULLY MASSAGED BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION.  JUST A COUPLE OF THE LOUVERS NEEDED TO BE STRAITENED A LITTLE TO MAKE THEM ALL LINE UP WHEN CLOSED. THE OUTER TRIM OF THE INSERT WAS SENT OFF TO A PROFESSIONAL CHROME SHOP IN CLEVELAND WHERE IT WAS BUFFED AND POLISHED AND THEN RECHROMED.  IT CAME BACK 99% PERFECT WITH NO IMPERFECTION SEEN WHEN INSTALLED.  AFTER ALL THE LOUVERS WHERE PAINTED, EVERYTHING WAS REASSEMBLED WITH NEW HARDWARE AND FASTNERS.  THE LOUVERS OPEN AND CLOSE LIKE THEY DID ORIGINALLY.  WITH THE PRESSURE OF THE SPRINGS, THEY SHUT NICE AND TIGHT.  IF YOU REMOVE THE SPRINGS, YOU CAN OPEN AND CLOSE THEM BY HAND SMOOTHLY.  


LASTLY IS THE BULLNOSE AND THE RADIATOR CAP.  BOTH PIECES ARE ORIGINAL AND WERE SENT TO THE CHROME SHOP AND CAME BACK PERFECT.  THIS IS ONE OF THE NICEST SETS I HAVE EVER OWNED.  THE BULLNOSE HAS INSTALLED IN IT AN ORIGINAL FORD EMBLEM WHICH COULD BE LEFT OR REPLACED AT YOUR DISCRETION.  


FINALLY, I AM INCLUDING AN ORIGINAL PINES WINTERFRONT BADGE.  I HAD THE INTENTIONS OF INSTALLING IT, BUT I THINK IT LOOKS BETTER WITHOUT IT.   I DONT THINK IT IS CORRECT FOR THE 1932 PINES, BUT IF THE NEW OWNER WANTS TO PUT ON A BADGE, THEY WILL HAVE ONE.  


OVERALL, THIS IS A COMPLETE BOLT ON UPGRADE PACKAGE FOR THE DUECE OF YOUR DREAMS.   IT IS READY TO TAKE OUT OF THE BOX AND BOLT ON.  


NOW FOR THE FUN STUFF.  THE BUYER IS BIDDING TO OWN.  THE BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL SHIPPING AND HANDLING COSTS. I ONLY CHARGE THE ACTUALLY SHIPPING AND INSURANCE PRICE.  DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE, IT MAY BE HIGHER OR LOWER THEN WHAT EBAY QUOTES YOU.  I WILL TRY AND WORK WITH YOU ON SHIPPING QUOTES TO FIND THE CHEAPEST WAY TO GET THERE.  I WOULD LIKE TO BE PAID THROUGH PAYPAL, WIRE TRANSFER OR BANK MONEY ORDER.  IT WILL NOT LEAVE MY HOUSE UNTIL PAID FOR.  IF YOUR LOCAL, CASH WORKS AND NO SHIPPING CHARGES.  I WILL HAVE IT PROFESSIONALLY PACKAGED AND SHIPPED WITH INSURANCE FOR FULL VALUE.  I WILL NOT TAKE A CHANCE ON THIS GETTING DAMAGED BY THE SHIPPING COMPANY AND NOT HAVING INSURANCE ON IT.  IT IS SOLD AS IS.  IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, ASK FIRST BID LATER.  THERE ARE NO REFUNDS.  CHECK MY FEEDBACK, I TRY TO HONESTLY DESCRIBE EACH ITEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY.  I HAVE BEEN AROUND HOT RODS MY WHOLE LIFE, EXPECIALLY 32 FORDS, SO IM PRETTY SURE I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT.  AT THIS TIME, I DONT PLAN ON PUTTING A BUY IT NOW PRICE IN PLACE, BUT I DO RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THE AUCTION AT ANY TIME FOR THE RIGHT PRICE.  I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
