    Thank you Park also did they even have a waterfall grille  on  1937 Terraplanes.

    Yes, the '37s have a waterfall, but flanked by louvers instead of the '36 "porous" panels.

    The only grille that maybe could compare to Terraplane's Art Deco waterfall grille is the Chrysler Airflow... Just my opinion..

    Late 1930s Triumph Dolomite waterfall grille.

    And that is what we hope to keep from happening to our beautiful waterfall grills!

    Yes you are so correct!  But I am building a '32 Ford Roadster (Fiberglass) with a '37 Terraplane Waterfall grill, Chevy engine, Trans and rear end. I would like to put a Hudson engine in the roadster, just don't have the money for a Hudson engine. The cost to build my 308 engine that I have in the '42 coupe was way more than I told my wife.

    Hahaha, aren’t all things way more than we tell our wives!!! 

    Please share photos of your build, I’d love to see how it’s coming together.  Plus I love the idea of a 308 Hudson in a 32 Ford, very cool!

    As the T-shirt says " When I die, I hope my wife doesn't sell my car & parts for what I told her I paid for them"  LOL
