Default 71 SS grille different?

Hi All,

I just picked up a 1971 SS Nova. But it appears to have doors and front end from another Nova.

I noticed the SS grilles are black. Are the grilles actually different for an SS, or are they just painted differently?

Thanks.

-Russell

Welcome to Team Nova Russell

I believe the grills are the same just painted black. If not mistaken I think there is stil chrome around the edges.

Thanks Philip!

Yeah, my car has a nice grille, but I was just wondering if could paint it to match the rest of the cars SS trim.

Cool.

I can not remember exactly without consulting a few books, but there was one or two years were they still offered an SS option that was only (or mostly) a trim package and they also had a custom or deluxe model with a different grill. I think in those years they used the cheaper model (or it might even have been the previous year's grill) painted black. For 1971 I am sure it is just the standard 1971 grill painted black.
