Thread: 1964 early 1965 tall Engine Grille

  1. #1

    1964 early 1965 tall Engine Grille

    Used very early in production, research indicates about 600 cars used this grille and the proceeds should hopefully help fund a new roof for my house
    No broken studs, needs restoration. $6500.00

    Yeah!
    Maybe Herr Ruf will see this and just absolutely HAVE to have it!

    Update:
    If it makes any difference, all the crossbar nuts have been soaking in Kroil for 3 months and have all been loosened, so no broken pieces to replace.

    901 Grille
    I spent several hours inhaling MEK cleaning the updated flat black paint off my (kinda) rare 901 grille.
    Vast improvement!
    All fasteners are loose, none broken. Still has a few bends from the last 53 years, looks like someone tried to install a badge or something and broke some of the mesh.

    901 Grille still available.
    I'm open to the suggestion that I might have priced this rare piece of P-Car technical engineering and artwork a bit too, let's say, loftily.

    bump please and open to realistic offers, whatever that is.
    Still need the house re-roofed!

    Curious- and no offense to ptrsbtrs, how does one tell what generation of 911 this grill is from.

    the beams are slimer and taller on the early one--like the one advertised. the easy way to distinguishe both versions is to have a look at the rivets.(last pic in the ad)
    on the later version they are in the center

    Hi Franz,

    Good "spotters guide" but here the proof is in the pudding!

    Danke !

    Curious also about the full-length black (rubber/plastic?) "ladder" gasket between the mounting studs on these grills. PET and my later cars ('68) show only a round washer on each of the studs, so I assume this ladder gasket is also a unique part with these early grills?
