I didn't know they were "Factory issue". So they were an option available for the car. I just thought they were sold at dealers. I know they were not installed from the factory during the 1962 production run.

Also, mine is NOS. It has a brushed finish with polished groves.

Possibly due to different front bumper cutouts?

Technically, they were anodized aluminum.
