These two cast grille pieces were labeled Torino, but my searching has found no year Torino that ever had these parts on them. There are no part numbers on them and they appear to be symmetrical, perhaps an upper and lower pieces or? Anyone know what these fit?
Thanks for looking.

I'm thinking '70-71 GT hood grilles?

I should have placed a tape measure next to these parts. They would fit between the head lights in the front grille of a car, they are that long, maybe 35" long, 5" tall? I'll measure them this morning. This has got me stumped!

Total shot in the dark, but are they peaked in the middle?  Maybe the center section from a '69 grille?
Really the only thing to me that looks close.Confused

I just checked the '69 grille and it's not the same, as the center section is all one piece, and it looks like it's stamped, not cast. Still stumped.

On a hunch I checked Galaxie and found a match with a 1966 Galaxie 7 Litre cast grille.

So it looks like this question is answered! Thanks!
