Grill support bracket?
#1
Hi All,
Does anyone know where to buy a front grill support bracket for a 71-72 Mach 1 grill please?

This is what I've got at the moment. The bracket isn't connected to the grille. I guess it fits the standard grill.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Your upright and extender are the same on my standard grill 73. Can you post pictures of the end of the latch.? I may have all or part of the parts needed.

That is a late 71-72 grille bracket for the center mounted grille
Your grille is an early 71 dual mount style
There is a raised loop on your grille - I assume this is a repair as it was not factory.
You either need a complete dual mount bracket set up or a new grille.
Ford grilles made in late 71-72 and the repro grilles have all 6 mounting points. They work with either mounting set up.
You could make an adapter plate to connect them.

EDIT after looking at your pic again - it looks like your two center mounts on the grille are broken off

Thanks for the part no. and information. Yes, the grill is partly broken, so I've bought a new 71 Mach 1 grill with the 6 mount points. Guess I'll have to make 2 brackets that fixes to that existing support, as that part seems to be very rare.

I have a 72 vert parts car that has the brackets you need I think. It has two vertical brackets instead of the one. Someone had put a Mach 1 grill in the car and the grill itself is busted and missing some pieces. I checked and I had some pictures before I took the grill out. I will have to get pics of just the brackets. I can blast them and prime before shipping if you like the looks of them. I can even paint the correct colors if you want. Not sure without looking if they are SLOP grey or semi gloss black. Can order you the new spring nuts and hardware and send in same box also if you need them.
I think when I do the export documents I can say they are a gift to save some cost. Would send regular post is the cheapest I have found.
Might be a day or so before I get the pics.
I have just bought another 72 vert parts car but will not go get it for a couple weeks. Not sure about the grill brackets since it was crashed.

Hi David,
Wow, thank you very much indeed! How much do you want for them please? I can sort out the primer as the car's going into the paint shop soon.
Thank you once again.

Mark, when you install the new grille it should bolt up to the bracket system you have
