Correct style grille for 68 RS
« on: February 07, 2006, 05:23:55 AM »
I'm looking at the replacement grille set up for a 68 RS being offered on ebay by Heartbeat City with the silver facing on the edges of the grille and headlight doors. It seems that this is a fairly new product made by CHQ and I'm told it is the correct style for 68 Rally Sports and that no one had ever reproduced it before, thus being the reason we see all of the 68's with black replacement grilles. I'm looking for comments on whether or not these are correct? Anybody with a survivor out there with this type of grille? Thanks, Dan

Yes, that is the correct look for the 68 RS grille. Here's a 15k original mile car with the original grille. The reproduction is closer to a chrome look than the original hot stamped silver.
