Hello- I'm new to the board, but have been eavesdropping for some time. I'm a Grad student in southern california, and I own a 66 A Code coupe that's very original and I'm slowly restoring everything. Anyhow, I've got a luggage rack that is in okay shape. I'm aware that there are repros made out of stainless. The one I have is chrome plated steel. Did Ford make these out of Stainless, or chrome plated steel? Also, I noticed that the repros only have 6 rubber bumpers across the back of the rack, whereas mine has 8. I want to get the one I have re-chromed, but if it's not original, I'll pass. Can anyone confirm what material was originally used on these racks? In advance, thanks, and I look forward to participating on this board.
