: 1965 Malibu grille question???

Why is it that when I look at the front end on a 1965 Malibu sometimes the grille is "blacked out", and sometimes it is shiny aluminum. There seems to almost be a 50/50 split with the cars that I see. Can anyone tell me which is correct, or maybe they both are correct. Thank you very much for the information in advance.

The Malibu SS received a mostly black grill and all other models received a shiny grill.

To further confuse things, some SS cars have been (incorrectly) restored using a shiny grill and some non-SS cars have had their grills painted black.

the blacked out grill looks the best...IMO!
