Default Flathood w/quad rounds

Someone long ago posted a photo of a grille that would fit a flathood with spider eyes/quad round lights. Can't find it for the life of me... anyone got one?

That was almost -too- fast. Was that available on non-turbo models?

I might - just thinking about options for my '79 wagon. If you've got one kicking around feel free to PM a price...

It's more than you can afford / want to pay so why bother?

You know you want it. You know it's worth it. Sure it may be more than 14.99 But it's the flathood grill.

Thing is I already have a regular flathood/single round setup. There's just something about the look of the spider eyes...

Probably more than a dead field rat 240 before the tow.

Also referred to as the "GTX" grille...I'd argue they are not unicorn status (the grey ones are). Post in wanted, some members from Europe / Australia may have one available...there's also one on ebay.

Can't hear my sarcastic joking inflection over the internets.

The grill is also the Euro GLE grill from 78-80. Used with TV screen headlamp housings and a flat hood. Many years ago I bought a nos one.

It's fairly easy to shorten early single rounds grill to fit between dual rounds or squares.

That silver one in Kens picture is the rarest version that I know of. When I was shopping for one a long time ago. You could only buy the black one. Silver seems to only have been on the 1983 turbo flathoods.
