Not bad for what they want for them these days I was lucky to get mine for a lot less than that but of course this was awhile ago. I have one that I'm pretty sure was chrome originally and not painted I scored that one for $100 on Ebay but it was missing one guard but the owner found it before he sent it.

I have a new old stock one with the original box and packaging and it is chrome so they did come chromed too. New old stock with no damage but needing paint or rechroming are running about $1,000 to $1,500. That is with all hardware and mounting brackets. My original chrome is still in really good shape, would work on a driver. The grill guard has no damage, but the bars are pretty wavy as they came from the factory. For a show truck the chrome shop would need to do some straightening and good polishing.

Hey guys, I found one on eBay 9 months ago CHROMED NOS a guy found 6 them one a shelf in the factory boxes at a closed Chevrolet dealership. Complete with the instructions. I paid one thousand. Awesome find. Keep searching eBay and change up your search wording as some people describe things in different way.

You do realize this thread is almost a decade old, right?

The parts wanted forum might get you some better results.

NorCal -- Please post your WTB ad in our Swap Meet. I will give this a couple of days and then prune this thread from your post down. As Martin says, WTB posts belong in the Swap Meet, not in the info sharing forums (per our plainly stated rules ... wink ).
