62 Chevy aluminum front end

Hello, it's my first time--- My question is Did a 62 Bel air come from the factory with an Alloy front end or did it get installed at the dealer??

Just a very small handful did. I am not sure of the numbers but I think it was less than 20. They were on the '62 Belair Bubbletops and were a special item. I did see a set of aluminum fenders on EBay awhile back and they had an outrageous price on them.

I know the '63 Z11 cars came with aluminum front ends but I'm not sure about the '62's
