I have another grill specimen of that style vintage down back to check. I saw another two used as outside mud door mats during a parts smuggling mission from Vermont.

Here is my grill entry. Let me know if we need any specific measurements from 1969 with a 265.

Same as the one I have. On yours, instead of using the mesh or the 8 slot, they added a spacer at the bottom. BUT, I don't believe that was stock. The 8 slot goes straight line the the leading edge of the frame. That way the side panels line up and wouldn't need to be bent at the bottom to bolt on.

So don't get too caught up in the number of slots. Here's a factory six sloter. I think the eight slot grills went only to cats sold to Outback Steak House. "No Snow too deep, Make no Two the Same"

1949, model 343, it is shorter, narrower and smaller pontoons with less rollers, round tube frame, and Plymouth 6 cylinder with 3 speed transmission, VW steering wheel

first fifth wheel machine,

first sold by the factory in 1954

and last seen on the roof of Crater Lake Lodge
