Default Strange grill

Anyone know what vehicle this came off of? Got it at a flea market last week. Going to make it as the rear engine cover on my Volksrod.

It reminds me of the nose piece off an old firetruck. Without the chrome part.

I was thinking tractor due to the amount of openings and the screen mesh behind it. Definitely not a car. Going to practice my metalsmithing skills on it. Will probably split it in the middle and add a few inches of material, possibly arching it more. Have so many parts for it but SOOOO many other things to do before it. Need to get the Mustang II front end on the Coyote first and make that a roller.
Need to sell the RV, the Manx buggy and my cafe' racer, not to mention so much car stuff/ parts in the garage AND most of my tools (bandsaw, drill press, 10 ton press etc...)

Cool beans! looks like that one is in pretty good shape too. If it were me I'd sell it to make gains toward a more expensive part I knew I was already going to have to buy... But your alterations sound very interesting. Sure hard to wait for the final product sometimes.

I have a nice sheet of perforated aluminum that would make a great back drop for the grille too...
