I never heard of it, guess that puts me in the majority if true.  If they are two parts then there should be 2 part numbers which would be easy to find in the 78 parts manual.  Looks like a decent car though. Needs quite a bit of work.

That would mean two different types of grills for the '78. Otherwise one wouldn't fit right in the other.

Sounds like BS to me as well

Hey Brett, looks like you got a winner here.  Is that a W72 engine with the incorrect air cleaner base?  Why don't you post some pictures as you work your magic on this one.  This will be a very nice car when you get done with it.

I don't think that's Brett. He's not in FL.

Looks like you're correct.  Well, I like the car.  I think it will end up being a great looking car.

I emailed them about a steering wheel and they said that they were an affiliate of Hitmans TA Specialties.    :o
