thanks '68, I actually brought in some '66 GTO grilles today, small world, lol!
Eric, on the '65 LeMans/GTO grilles, originally each was a 1 piece pot metal casting , fairly heavy & the leading edge (the surround area) is chrome plated. No molding, just a chrome pot metal face.
Over the the last 15 years, some entity reproduced these grilles out of plastic with a chrome vacuum metalized face. Believe it was the PartsPlace. Nice used original grilles are out there, I've had 'em before but am out right now. Numerous racers have pulled their originals & put in the lighter plastic repro's, & that has actually put more originals out there in the used market. Hope this helps.
