Default Interchangeable aftermarket parts

Hello all. Thanks for any replies in advance....
I am in the process of replacing the front clip on my 1965 GMC 1000. The Radiator Core support and Grille support were too far gone for reuse. Does anyone know if LMC or any other aftermarket chevy parts work in place of the original parts. Or is there a source that sells direct replacements for the GMC?
Thanks

Donor parts are better. Learn to search. All that stuff you want is on Ebay right now. Check your local craigslist also.

appreciate the reply. I have reached out to the shop you suggested. fate would have it that is where I am from. I have purchased parts on ebay in the past. And I have over paid for parts as well. But I guess that is what we do when in need.

Yes Adam. Good deal. I found that shop by searching Billings Craigslist. I saw you were from the area.

4-5-6 Chevy Trucks sells used parts too. Tony Smith, the owner came out to my place to buy several 60-66 fenders, a couple of hoods, and a cab to take back to KC to sell.
