Unusual Loadstar Grill

Recommended Posts

What is the deal with these grills? I'm guessing to fit certain engines?

The grille is extended forward for a larger radiator, usually for the LV series gas engines or the DV-550 diesels.

Thanks for the info! I figured that was the case but couldn't find a conclusive answer.

I always thought it meant a diesel engine.

Bud I always thought the same thing but our town had a 77 Loadstar fire truck with a 478? engine with that grille.  I know it didn't have a 404 or 446 series engine. The truck got about 2mpg
