    Okay thanks for clearing that up. I had always understood the bright grille could be had as part of the options that were added starting in '68, been a victim of wrong info before...

    Thanks for weighing in Richard

      Thank you all for your replies.....looks like I am going to refinish my grille in dark argent and satin black then and call it a day.

      @69bfan Anywhere specific to get the argent paint? Do you carry that product at all? Is totally auto still in business? I believe they used to sell the paints like that.

      IIRC Totally Auto is no longer the source for that paint. It was taken over by another individual and the last time I got some, he had to have more mixed and packaged in the rattle can. That' s been about 2 years ago. I have his card somewhere , and a can of the paint... I will look for it. attached is a pic of what it looks like.......................MO

        This is a NOS RR Grille that i have and this might help to get you close except the texture is hard to duplicate.
