Original, new in the box, GM 1981 El Camino grilles are becoming increasingly harder and harder to find. Consequently, the cost of a new unit when found can quickly break the budget. The El Camino Store is constantly sourcing from suppliers around the world to bring you the best quality reproduction 1981 GMC or El Camino grill available on the market today at the best possible price. These plastic injection 1981 El Camino molded grilles are thoroughly cleaned to remove any mold compound before being placed through the Vacuum Metalized Plating process. Next, the inlay is painted black. This process is the same process GM used to chrome plate their original 1981 El Camino plastic grilles and this offers the closet to the original appearance. Remember to order the correct mounting hardware for your new grill to avoid breaking off the mounting ears. At the El Camino Store, we understand the importance of quality parts and want to get your baby looking its best.

This conversion costs less than the price of a NOS GM 1980 grill (when you can find them) and adds a completely new look to the front of your El Camino.
