Hotshot with a grill

There are some pictures of a Hotshot in the San Diego Automotive
Museum with a nice grill on the front. Does anyone know if this
grill was official Crosley, such as the car being a prototype?

Looks like the popular after market grill that Braje sold for $24.95. Since the engine is heavily dressed up with other Braje parts it fits. I especially like the alternator that was added to the engine.

The VC models never had a factory grill, and it wasn't needed if the air scoop and radiator side cardboards are in place
