The radiator grille and shroud were severely redesigned. The shell was fabricated with a "widow's peak" ridge at the top to accent the hood hinge (right where the original filler neck was located). The shell was also shortened 2 inches and then thinned at its base so it wouldn't look too bulky. The shroud helps direct the flow of air pulled through the radiator by the engine's mechanical fan, and you can see some of the rivets used in the construction-a theme repeated throughout the car.
