Black v chrome bezel

Iím doing a bit of a spring cleanup on the truck and plan on swapping out the headlight bezels with new ones. Iím only finding chrome ones. Did the base model pick ups come with black ones?

Happy to use chrome but not finding black ones has me wondering.

All trim levels, 69-70 only. They don't sell black ones, you'll have to paint a set.
Black also goes in the same ring in which the screws reside, it hides them - and that ring is painted black in all 69-72, and 71-72 covers the area all the way up to underlying the bright headlight bucket. 71 only also has a full perimeter black ring around the whole grille shell.
What year is your truck?

Mines a 70. I wonder if new chrome ones will make the rest of the grill look odd since it’s def not new. Or I could paint them. Decisions decisions!

Re: Black v chrome bezel

The 69-70 bezels are steel painted black. 71-72 are aluminum. My opinion is the black ones look better in the 69-70 grills.

Doesn’t it feel good. To realize you already have what you like best before you spend money?
