Welcome to the CAC Mick. That was a rather common modification back before restoring old Corcettes was a serious thing. The grille and eyebrow mouldings were just butted together and no bumpers were used. A friend had his '61 drag racer done this way. Although a replacement grille opening and valance panel are available from the parts houses they are expensive.
