Steve weren't you wanting a grille with a good center. Check out E-Bay # 1873648147 Bet this one doesn't draw many bids.

The other way around. I have a perfect center and I need the headlight area, but thanks, I'll keep an eye on this one.

Maybe with Christmas coming so soon, somebody will let one go reasonable and save their money for Christmas presents. I'm just glad mine had a good grille in it when I bought the car. Had to buy the fog lights, as someone had removed the cross bars, but got those For $50, better than a $600 grille

I'm tempted to not even replace mine. When it's mounted on the car you only notice it if you look close at the headlight. The center part looks perfect.

I'm missing some of the pieces. I've thought of experimenting with fiberglass or carbon fibre. You can make anything, really if you're willing to put the time in it.

I'd do lots of experimenting for $600.

Steve, Daniel Carpenter informed me that he's "biting the bullet" and having new tooling made for the 71-72 grilles (original tooling was damaged beyond repair by fire). I have no ETA, but it's good to know they're eventually coming. Wouldn't want to spend $600 bucks only for a nice repro to hit the market for less than half that price several months later. I'm sure these repros WILL be expensive however, because the tooling for a piece like that is SUPER DUPER expensive to make, and you have to amortize those costs into the product.

Wow, thanks Rick! That's the news I've been waiting to hear! I'm glad I didn't give in to the robber barons.

That's awesome news RICKS!!! I've been waiting a couple of years for one, refusing to pay the high prices and am glad to see them finally coming out.
Please let us know when they come on the market, and I will gladly place an order.
Also, are the sport lamps and grill trim available aftermarket or are those something we'll need to locate second hand?

Count another one sold. Mine is good, but a friend also has a 72 Mach that someone put the standard grille in. I have been trying to get him to change it for years, but he refused to pay the high price. He almost cut the wiring for his fog lights off and i told him not to. Probably will be glad he didn't now.

I don't have any news about the trim or the sport lamps.
