I wouldn't expect it was very exotic. A long time ago (40+ years ago) plastic model car kits came with chrome (actual chrome) over plastic parts done with a vacuum process. And my friends and I used to get our aluminum valve covers on our cars plated with chrome back then too. Fairly common in SoCal.
