'63 Galaxie complete grille, very nice used
« on: May 30, 2021, 11:38:45 AM »
Bumped. I need to get rid of this stuff, so dropped the price again.

Selling this very nice used grille for a '63 Galaxie. It includes both headlight surrounds. Other than the one ding on the drivers side headlight surround (outer headlight, visible in picture), the grille has zero damage, dings or scratches and very little stone pitting. It is not bent or twisted in any way and all center bars are very straight with no pushed in areas or twists. It does have light scarring from the factory bolts, and one of the bottom bolt holes has some slight distortion that can be straightened/flattened pretty easily (far outer passenger side). I cleaned one end lightly using some Simple Green just to get some crud off from storage to see how the anodizing was holding up. Except for the ding, I would consider this a very nice grille for anything short of a 100 pointer show car. I do not know if the ding can be removed well enough to be saved for re-anodizing for a perfect show piece.
$200 plus shipping from Ohio.

Edit to add that the 0000 steel wool pad in the picture was NOT used to clean any part of this grille. I was using it to clean some chrome on other pieces.

Yes, it's still available. I'm a few miles east of Lima, Ohio.

I do have another grille that isn't quite as nice, maybe a few other odds and ends but don't have the time to sort through stuff to find everything '63 specific. I could do a quick scan for larger parts, but most are small pieces in boxes, so I'd have to check every one by part number, which is very time consuming. Sorry I don't have a list.

I have no idea what shipping would be without an address, and I'd have to safely box it (not exactly easy as it's a delicate grille) and then get a quote. If interested, give me your zip code, your town, and a few days to box it and quote it.

Any chance you plan on going to Beaver Springs in September? I know it might be a long shot, but up to you. I would be willing to meet you there if you are going.

Sorry I have not called. I got laid up by Covid for 4 days and have a ton of stuff I fell behind on and now busting my butt to get caught up.

As of now, I didn't have plans to go (again, just too busy). That may change. If I can get other stuff together to sell, I may change my mind. That would pay for the trip, and help me get rid of stuff.

I'll try to get a shipping quote over the next few days.
