Chrome or no Chrome?  My understanding is that all grilles were painted in
model year 1951 only, and chrome grilles were a standard option for all
other model years.  The quality of the plating was very poor in '52 & '53
due to the reduced nickel content in the process.  Nickel was critical in
the production of artillery shells.
