Looking for OEM GMC grill

Anybody know where I can find a OEM or repop GMC grill for a 79 Jimmy? Just like my avatar pic? Seems like most companies just have them for the Chevy. Thanks !

Re: Looking for OEM GMC grill

Those aren't reproduced and may never be. Not too long ago someone started making the rare 73-74 Chevy grill again, so it can be done if there is enough demand and someone wants to take up the business opportunity. I know I would buy one if I had the chance to.
