    Part number... Not sure. Mine is a repop.

    IIRC....
    78-79 grills were all the same.
    The only difference was the Z28 grills were black while the Sport Coupe (and RS?) grills were a silver-grey color.
    The LT grill in 78 and Berlinetta in 79 may have been slightly different but I don't know any part numbers and they were definitely not black.

    Thank you, I also have a repop to me it looks like a repo, the so called gm is shiny black and I thought it should be flat black and has no numbers on it . Dennis..
     
  4. The GM one has atleast the material cast in it. Somehting the repops I have seen don't have.
    And I'd have to look at my old grilles, to see if I can find some other things on there, but they have been painted several times, so a light engraved # would not be visible anymore

    that's what I thought too, this one has nothing on it, I paid a nos price and that's what I want, and I think the originals had a brass insert so you could not over tighten them so they crack, thanks Dennis..
     
  6. No brass insert here at my OE parts.
    Forgot to check if I can see something, u interested in upper or lower grille or both?
