Hi Guys,
Does anyone know if the late 70's/early 80's Ford van grille with the square headlights is offered in resin? I am wanting to replicate some of the period correct vehicles that I served on. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

You're looking for a factory-stock grille for the circa 1979 through 1985 Econoline ; or is it the custom grille from , say , the "Phantom" that you're looking for ?

The MPC early '80s Econoline kits had the stock square light grille, IIRC. Never seen one offered in resin, though.

I think David's asking about his grille?:

The MPC "Stunt Van" and "Sunrunner" vans contained this grille, but I don't think I've seen it offered as a separate resin part.

If anyone is interested, I broke into a sealed kit, and now have the grill in question available.
