    This kit is for the EARLY 1968 Cougar, we also list the LATE 1968 version. There are minor differences between the two.

    This basic kit will save you many hours on your grille restoration especially if you do not own a bead blasting cabinet or the specialty power tools needed to separate the chrome grille bars from the grille assembly. To come up with this "near perfect" group of parts we have to disassemble several West Coast, corrosion free grilles and inspect them very closely. Next we glass bead blast every square inch and inspect them once again, as many hairline cracks and defects do not reveal themselves until all paint is removed. Once they pass the second inspection they receive 3 coats of SEM brand Trim Black paint. Lastly we hand select a set of premium, show quality chrome bars that have been restored to above and beyond the luster found on our cars from the factory (restored grille bars will not have the inner vanes painted as the originals are). We HIGHLY encourage you to send your grille trade to us in advance if it is in decent condition as this could cut your cost by as much as half or more. If you need help shipping, we can offer you a prepaid UPS call tag at a discounted rate. Proper packaging is imperative! For this reason you may wish to purchase the grille first and reuse our packaging to return your old grille. Keep in mind the value we give on your "core" grille is at our sole discretion. This is an expensive package but as we all know the early Cougar grille is an intricate complicated assembly that when done right is the crown jewel and focal point of a high end restoration. The quantity we have on hand is very limited and yes we will take multiple grilles in trade if you have them.

    *Keep in mind that this is the headlight grille portion only, the center grille is not included (see related parts).

    Package includes:

    Headlight grille sections
    Headlight buckets
    Eyelid doors
    Passenger side eyelid coral/ reproduction walking cat assembly
    Eyelid hinges
    Restored grille bars
    Headlight bezels
    Headlight cups
