Looking for 76 or 77 aero grilles


Looking for a pair of grilles. Condition doesnít matter as long as they arenít broken. The left grille I have is useable, but the right side is missing part of the grille. Could also use a broken RH for parts if nothing else available. Pictures is the broken grille so you can see the piece Iím missing. Thanks.

I don't have any grills for sale, but looking at the pic that should be an easy fix since the chrome appears to have been painted silver anyway. Those are '76 S/442 grills and are getting hard to find, they show up on eBay from time to time though. The '77 slant nose (aero) header was on the 442 only and had different grills with horizontal slots, those are really hard to find.

'76 NOS S/442 grills (center header emblem shaved):


'77 442 grills (74 442 emblem added):

Thanks. Yeah the ones I have are 76. I can fix the grille, but I donít have the missing piece. If you know of anyone who has a broken right hand grille let me know. If I canít find better grills or the piece I need Iíll cut up a grille from something else and make it work.

That's what I was thinking. I work in a dealership and throw trim pieces away all the time that you could graft down and make it work with a little epoxy. Being in the bottom corner it shouldn't be very noticeable once painted. Be prepared to spend several hundred for a pair with the chrome still nice, if you can even find them. I repaired a few of the slats on the 77 grills pictured. Good luck.
