Please Help in Identifying These Louvers

Post by BBMALIBU on Sat Jan 23, 2016 12:14 pm

I want to confirm that these are factory louvers and not aftermarket (if they exist) for a Laguna.

The original owner of my 1976 Malibu Classic installed these on the car.  I had them removed when I had the car repainted.

The original owner probably screwed them on when he installed them (what a meat head).

I am sure the holes can be filled in with some body shop filler substance.

Although the mounting tabs are missing/broken and the extra holes, these louvers are pretty clean.

Do you think they have some value?

Probably better to try and mount them with emblem tape nowadays anyway.
