Default Flathood grill id, Group A or Aussie

Found this in my stash, Can't remember if it's one I pulled from an '83 flathood or ordered from overseas.


Any help will be appreciated.
Dave

Both. We got it in the US on the '83 GrpA homologation cars, but overseas cars got them as standard on certain models as well.

Its the same plastic either way, but I thought the 83 flathood grilles were silver? Sound familiar to anyone else? The rest of world just got black ones as far as I know.

Thanks guys,


neptune, I thought I remembered a difference in the chrome trim, but now that you mention it the silver thing sounds familiar. I found 3 flathood grills in the San Diego yards during the years I was foraging there but by the time I needed one for a build I think I had to grab one from overseas.

The argent silver ones came on the special 83 cars, i think the rest were black. Someone said that the argent one, has a little differnet space/and or chrome trim is different, some say not, i have yet to see the difference. The part numbers are the same on the black/silver grille p/n 1246618.

That looks like one of the many that I (and others) have pulled from '79 and '80 Aussie/Euro spec 240GL's and sold. As I understand it, the US cars only got them painted silver, not plain black plastic.
