Default Looking for grille

I'm looking for a grille that will look good and will withstand Ozark winters - I've used chrome plastic strips on the stock grille but am getting tired of replacing them every so often when the clear coating peels and the get dim.

Here's a picture of a grille that I saw on another forum - can anyone identify it?



Thanks.

I'm checking my good friend google - found this so far -



Product Number 3903PTK from J&J Enterprises Inc. | StreetPerformance.com

apparently J&J Enterprises doesn't make it anymore? I haven't found a current reference.

Harrym, I have looked every where and called J&J Enterprises [out of business], I have called all US junk yards listing aftermarket grilles. It's the grille I want, I saw it at the Carlisle Pa Car Show. I have spent hours a day on the web searching for it. Since this was my mods starting point and at $450.00 a big chunk of the budget, I am not giving up yet I am going to call a custom shop but I hear it's going to really cost. If anybody has a line on this grille or an idea, please would love to hear from you.

I contacted the owner of the Cruiser in the picture - found him by surfing through the other forum and sent him a PM asking where he got the grille. It turns out that he had been in a wreck - was hit in the rear end - and his Cruiser was totalled. the insurance company let him take the aftermarket parts off, and he offered to sell me the grille. so I bought it from him. I also got the PTeazer tail lights that he had taken off - and it turns out that they are the same color as my Cruiser - Cool Vanilla!

Apparently J&J (the company that made the grille) is no longer in business.
