A nice dealer installed accessory in 1954 was the grille guard. It was easily installed by using the pre-existing bumper bolts.
A problem when installed was that it lessened the visibility of the front license plate. Therefore, another change was made during the installation. The license was moved to the center of the front splash apron from the factory position on the right side. In the kit were two small rubber plugs. These filled the factory license bracket holes that existed when the factory license bracket was removed.
