Unusual grille on Chevrolet?

Recommended Posts

This looks like a 1936 Chevrolet to me, but the grille is unusual. Any ideas as to what it is? Some type of cover maybe? Click the photo for a larger image.

Normally I'd say this was an aftermarket winter front but it appears to have a Chevrolet emblem so maybe it was a factory accessory.

Judging by the coats on the people, this looks like a cold weather accessory for the radiator.

Yes, it's a style of winterfront. I have also seen them on 1936 Dodge Brothers cars.

Looks like you guys nailed it - It's a winterfront! I've seen tractor trailers with grille covers, and guys with a piece of cardboard shoved in front of their radiator, but I had never seen this accessory. Thanks for the education.
