In the days before Wayne Corporation owned C/B, the curtain rods were made of 5/8" wide 1/8" thick chrome plated steel, and when Wayne Corporation took over, they switched over to the aluminum rods for cost savings. The real savings was in the chrome plating being eliminated.
My 1963 Pinner Chrysler also had the chrome plated steel curtain rods, but I don't remember how they were attached at the ends. Those were showing signs of rusting, so I had them all re-chromed.
