Fresh Air Vent Grille?

i am putting all new interior in my '57. i bought new kick panels with pioneer speakers in them that have the holes pre-cut for the fresh air vents. i have been able to find the cable kit to open and close the vent doors and also the seal kits but i cant find the vent grilles that bolt to the kick panel face. are these being remade and if so, where can i buy them?

I haven't seen these repopped. Should be a pretty easy junk yard score. I also see them sometimes in the classifieds.

Re: Fresh Air Vent Grille?

i think the chances of me finding a 55-57 in a junkyard around here are slim to none unfortunately. i may just have to fabricate something

scoveny91. I see that you need some inside vent covers. How about these? They are not for sale. If you are interested send me a PM. They are in good shape. From a 55.

Re: Fresh Air Vent Grille?

are you looking at blocking off the fresh air grille?

I saw these the other day.

Re: Fresh Air Vent Grille?

Ahhh, I remember I also bought the new kick panels, with the speakers too.

Then the reality check of .....I didn't have the grills either.

I just figured right away that I'd make my own.


I have the benefit of a plasma cutter.


It took some welding and grinding to get the final result.


Seeing your situation reminded me of my situation, good luck, Jim
