Re: Whats missing?

Norcalgal for the win. You will probably have to find one used.

It looks like the going price for a new one is around 104 bucks https://www.americanclassic.com/1947...CABEgLl0vD_BwE Not the only listing I found.

77 C 30 dualie, 454, 4 speed with a 10 foot flatbed and hoist. It does the heavy work and hauls the projects around.

Re: Whats missing?

That picture in post number three looks a lot like mine and the countertop in my kitchen!

On the GMC there's two pieces that close out the radiator support.

There's an arch-shaped u-channel that closes out the radiator support,



another piece that attaches to the front of the support (the one in post 3)



And a view of how it looks assembled

I got mine from MotherTrucker in Tucson, but I'd try Paul's truck parts and some of the other used places. I think I paid about $30-50 a couple of years ago.

Re: Whats missing?

I forgot about that arched piece that goes over the top thinking that the piece on your counter top had that. We are known to borrow photos around here when doing a search.
