It is all one casting. The center is not removable it's painted red.

Its maybe two feet long or so. I guess you would call it a grille bar for a Starfire or a 98. I just bought mine from Ebay not that long ago. There were two of them at the time from different sellers but I haven't seen one lately.

You might want to run a wanted add on here if you want one. Did you say you wanted it for an F85?

Let me know i can take some close up pictures if you need some.

I like the idea the grills are so similar. I'd love to build a gasser style 61 F85 in black.

Could you post a picture of your car?

I hope you can see this shot is between the grill and the radiator with the hood hold down plate removed it shows how the center grill bar is mounted I actually used my two Center Oldsmobile mounts to mount the grill bar but the out side mounts did not line up I will have to modify them slightly.

The bar is 37 in wide roughly by 3 in total depth. Each blade is about an inch and a half wide.

The 1962 full-size Dynamic 88, and perhaps the Super 88 used a similar bar on the tail panel. I see them on ebay from time-to-time. It might meet your needs?
