That looks like a 77-79 grille. The equivalent GMC grilles had a center bar that the "GMC" lettering attached to. There is no center bar on your grille.

Besides that, the whole thing is one molded piece of plastic. You would have to do a lot careful surgery and plastic welding to even remove the Chevy emblem and mount from that grille.

Thanks, yes it is on FB market place as a 78-79 oem grille. I didn't know if those badges were a bolt on. I don't have mine at home to look..

Thanks again.

Are you having trouble finding an actual GMC grille or do you just like the design of the Chevy grille more?
