I don't have any photo evidence which supports the honeycomb/hexagonal mesh myself.  That's not to say it absolutely doesn't exist, but I don't have such.  What I DO have is a ton of other info which backs up rectangular mesh.  The enlargement in Mike's post above is not the same shot that I have, at least without being "enhanced" in some fashion.

On my laptop, I see a diamond pattern on the close up of the mock up "Daytona"...

There - fixed it.

Are we going down the road of suggesting that round turn signals (that's the way they look to me) were also an alternative component, in lieu of rectangular Valiant T/S's?

Maybe there's a reason Chrysler essentially blacked-out the grille in their own public relations photos...    shruggy

I stand by this:
Besides the lack of photographic evidence which supports its use by Creative Industries, one of the biggest reasons to rule out honeycomb/hexagon mesh as an original-equipment part has to do with the turn signals.  I have a copy of the looong report Chrysler submitted to the Feds / DOT during the summer of 1969, which details all of the testing and documentation they went through to show the turn signals emitted enough light from behind the mesh - including at specific side angles, etc.  That report documents every component, down to the screws/washers and spacers... which affected the mounting angle of the turn signal inside the nosecone.  A different mesh, with a different amount of openness (especially if viewed from an obtuse angle) would have negated their DOT reports.  That could have easily caused the car's safety certification to be pulled, and Dodge never would have risked that.  Y'think Ford would have hesitated one second to bring this to the DOT's attention?


My opinion does not matter more than anyone else's.  If a person happens to disagree, that's perfectly fine, we can agree to disagree.  I've stated my opinion, which combined with a dollar, might get you a cup of coffee somewhere.
