The grill work is different.

Maybe a Cadillac vent ?

 

I am not familiar with either.

Hiya Chris! Interesting grille. Maybe from one of the Cadillac-Darrins that Dutch was supposed to have built from the 50 leftover Darrins he bought from the factory. None have ever surfaced according to many members of the KFOC. I assume it was in your Dad's collection - know where he got it? Post the pic on the KFOC Darrin forum at kfclub.com and see what Terry and Jack have to say. Interesting piece - may lend credence to the idea that Dutch built at least one Caddy-Darrin.

Hey Rick.. It was not my Dad car..  The guy got the car back in the 70-80's with that Grill..

 

It might be the a test car for the Cadillac-Darrin??  Not sure.. But Cool..

 

May lend credence to the idea that Dutch built at least one Caddy-Darrin. It is in Ca in a private collection..

Just word of mouth..

Here is why I posted it.. Check out the hood on the white car... It looks like it is bigger to put the v8 in it..
