The S1 Aprilia grille is flat in cross section, the S2 grille has a slight curve in the cross section, similar to an Appia or Aurelia.
I hope the pictures below show the difference......... its not much!!

   I'm going to slightly disagree , s1's also had the curved grill on lusso models , flat grill is for berlina only curved is lusso or s2,  I'm no expert on Ardennes but the 2 I have in which both seem original both have the flat grills too ,there are also brass and steel grills available , brass seems much rarer , j

I would be interested in this, my car's grille being a bit rusty, but the link took me to various pieces of decorative furnishing and nought else. If there is an Aprilia grille to be bid for Iwould be grateful to be told where to find it on Ebay.

James, we will have to agree to disagree, all the original Lusso models I have owned or seen have the flat grille. A.

Someone got a bargain buying the ebay grille, it had been sold within a few hours of the post appearing on here.

My Aprilia was a 1939 Series 1 Lusso - it had a curved grille. As did the back of the Siamese kitten! See photo.

Ade I think we will, both the car I've just sold and my fathers lusso have curved grills ,mine brass my fathers steel, both 100% original cars ,also the car I sold to Dave Gee , lusso, curved steel grill , I think it comes back to the "no such thing as a standard Lancia" theory that Norman Stewart came up with in the 70's , Lancia were a relatively small company in the 1930's and if they ran out of parts they would use what was available , you can clearly see this on Augusta's (some have bolted on mouldings where the factory ran out of lusso shells and some have pressed) also the variation in door handles between alloy brass or steel, we were told in Turin that my fathers car has the wrong door handles (alloy) yet I have an original press photo stamped by Alperton of a lusso augusta with alloy handles  , back to Aprilia's I don't doubt for a minute that your Lusso's had flat shells and were probably original , however our cars are original too ,maybe your cars were early Lusso's ?? as ours are all 39's ?? I can't answer that part I'm afraid all I can 100% say is that some 1st series cars had curved grills from the factory  and its not specific to s2 vehicles ,  also seen commonly on Aprilia's Aurelia's and Appia's is "flattened grills" where they have been pushed flatter than they originally would have been which look ok but not correct,( I've just re read this post and it could be taken that I'm proclaiming to be an expert which I'm not so please do not take any offense to what I have said its not meant to, j  :) )
