Who carries a new '40 chevy grill?

I have a 1940 Chevy coupe. I may rechrome my grill, but I want to see what my options are. Does anyone know where to get a new grill?

I found one stainless grill for like $800. Are there just chrome ones at a cheaper price?

I don't know of anyone making new ones but Chevys of the 40's has re-plated originals. I think they run around $800.

The stainless grilles lack the depth of an original. If you can get a restored original, or yours rechromed, for the same as a repro, do that...
