Hey gang, I have a 66 Chevy C10 fleet 283V8. I am searching for this replacement part, and I need some help. To me it seems to be the radiator support frame, however, the radiator is not sitting on it. It could be the bottom of the grill support panel?? I just do not know for sure. Any help is appreciated.
The first 2 pics are of the part. The last pic (the one with my finger) is where it sits behind the bumper and under the grill.

Radiator support. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Radiator-Support-60-66-Chevy-GMC-Truck/172795295123?hash=item283b66f593:g:gLMAAOSw4XRZeMws I am not advocating this ebay add. Just showing you the part, description and a price. All of the vendors will sell this piece. Can find used rad supports all day long on CL and EBAY. The radiator bolts to rad support on both edges of radiator (8-10 bolts). Maybe also a fan shroud is attached. The nose of your front fenders attaches to the top hole of the radiator support. As such, to replace you are messing with line-up of all front sheet metal parts and potentially breaking 50 yr old bolts. Be careful not to go too far. The last pix. Need a better shot. The grill and grill surround are 2 pieces. The grill will attach with 3-4 bolts each side in vicinity of headlights and not attached in the area (I think) pictured. Not real sure what the 2-holed piece is? Attach a wider view of that area.
Thanks. This helps a ton. I have been watching some videos on some people taking the front end off...I agree with you, that I will have to be super careful with some of the bolts. I think i will have to replace the fender wells with some rust issues, so this will go along with that project.
