    For decades, owners of later generation Chargers have had few options when it came to replacing a damaged original grill on their 1973-74 Charger or Charger SE. They could try to find an original that was still in good shape or they could opt for a refurbished one or locate an expensive NOS grill.

    The problem with most used grills on 1973-74 Chargers, is that the tabs that secure the grill to the car have a tendency of cracking or breaking off. Additionally, the SE models had a chrome plated plastic grill that had a tendency to flake or lose its luster. The SE models also came with a red die-cast grill bar that often pitted and corroded badly, particularly in northern states that used salt on the roads. Another problem area with these cars was with the urethane headlamp surrounds that were infamous for cracking, losing their shape, and giving way to the sun's harmful UV rays that baked them until they lost all of their paint and started to disintegrate into a fine yellow urethane powder.

    Thanks to the R&D team at OER who recognized this void in the market, and invested in all-new tooling, we are pleased to announce that reproduction grills and related components for 1973-74 Charger and Charger SE are now IN STOCK and ready to ship.

    If your 1973-74 Charger needs a new toothy smile, Classic Industries is here to help. The grills for the Non-SE models are finished in argent silver paint while the SE grills are chrome plated, just like the original Mopar item. Refer to the following item numbers.

    *MB9920 - Silver Grill Set includes: LH and RH grills. LH and RH headlamp surrounds, LH and RH headlamp shield retainers, and hardware to mount the retainers to the grill.

    A note on the headlamp fillers. They are specific R/L (pn's are molded into them). The grilles are also specific R/L. There were several early reports on the board of members having fitment issues but we later found that they had been reversed during install. I haven't installed mine yet but they look fantastic - very happy with them for the price.

    Thanks for the comment. You are correct about the parts being specific to the side of the vehicle. Glad you are happy with your purchase. Would love to see a pic of your car when you get it done with the new grills on it.
