Default 1962 grill question


I was given my 1962 thunderbird by my dad before he passed away. I know he got it from some one else at some point.

My question is this. It appears to have a grill from a 61. Everything I find online shows a different grill for the 62. The one that looks like a lot of little squares. I have horizontal grill. Did they put this grill on the 62's as well? If not I am assuming that someone replaced the grill due to rust etc.

my first thought was that the one with the little squares was on the sport coupe, but I find lots of pics of 1962s with that grill and none with the grill I have.

C2SB 8200-A is a 1962 Thunderbird grille. All other years have different part numbers.

then I indeed have a 61 grill on my 62. It's okay, I like the 62 grill better then the one on it, so this means by changing it I will be making it more original.
