    Description

    Please Note:

    Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.

    "Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt.  The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.

    Used grade "B" center grille for the 1970 Mercury Cougar. This may have a few cracks, will show some pitting and may have a few broken studs. A great option if you are looking to just fill a hole, but some people like our reproduction unit that you can find here. However, nothing beats original FoMoCo!

    Pros:
    • Hard to find part
    Cons:
    • Photos mislead condition of actual part
    Let me preface this review, I understand this is a nearly 50 year old part, however I feel the listing page for this replacement was misleading.

    Upon browsing for this replacement grille, the product page provided multiple pictures and the prompt 'Only 1 Left' As such I was left to assume the pictures of this product were going to be the same grille I would receive. Sadly, this was not the case.

    The grille I received was in much worse shape than the 'Grade B' part shown in the pictures, with large amounts of rust in the fins and dirt caked in the rear. 3 of the 4 mounting points were either broken or missing hardware.

    What I was provided will work, as the page says 'to fill a hole' but its going to require more work than I was expecting. At this price point, if I had seen the actual pictures of the grille I would receive, I would have waited and saved up for the repro that is also for sale here.

    I received the right side exhaust manifold shortly after I ordered it. My 302 engine is coming along, so hopefully it may be ready to drop into my 1970 Maverick, which is very similar to my first 1970 Maverick that I had from 1970 to 1986, the...
