Wow, pretty rough looking parts, the grille appears to have almost all the mounting tabs broken. I have 2 NOS grilles in the original boxes if I ever need one.

Have we really reached that point? $350 for crusty junk? I might have to start hoarding parts at the pick-n-pull on the 50% off days, or maybe just reselling. I have seen at least three mid Dodges, a mid Ford, and several third gen Fords go through my local pick-n-pull in the last couple months, all of which had chrome bumpers, decent grills, and other good parts.

Ive been doing that, going to my bone yard N stripping junkers for yrs, I have a whole shed just for Chevy van parts. My Grand kids are going to need them .... they are going to get harder to find to get parts from. N if you do find them they are going to want a fortune. Get them now at a reasonable price or pay thru the nose later !

I have two plastic ones and two aluminum ones in storage for the same reason. Dam I am loaded.

but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up,
totally worn out, and proclaiming

Yeah, I didn't post it because I thought it was a deal. I don't really know the values of these things. I just saw it, and thought maybe someone could use them.

I'm looking at a $200 bill just to get billet inserts for my van, then another $150 or so to get a new grille (mine is cracked, chrome fading). It's just what they cost, it seems. So the $350 for these didn't shock me (though my parts will be new).
