    You ever consider 49 plymouth bumpers? They are 3 rib not 5 ribs. I bought mine on E BAY for under $100 with shipping. They are chrome plated steel. I cut mine and welded them up for a custom fit. Installed on my 1950 2 door wagon, many compliments.

    I like the look on your car. Mine is a mild custom 39 Ford cabriolet pictured here. Did you order the 40 Ford arc or the straight one so it tucks in better. I don’t care for the bumper hanging out too far from the body.

    Jack must be bored today to dig up a thread that has been DEAD for 13 years and 8-1/2 months. Damn, I believe he may now hold the record for digging out the longest dead thread.
    I did see a Briz bumper on some guys's ride that had been wrecked the other day and the bumper took a pretty good lick and protected the car somewhat. I am not a fan of the aluminum look preferring chrome but I'd run them on a daily drive rod .

    I decided to try and make my own, they turned out OK, but I try to keep them away from anything harder, I reckon they would mark easily.

    Originals. I bought the first 3 I ever saw for sale 4 years ago. 2 rears and 1 front.. They cleaned up pretty good. Scan0785.jpg Scan0656.jpg

    I have had one (bumperless in front) on my coupe since they first came out. I love the look, but it is VERY soft and marks and scratches really easy, It's also a pain to keep shiney, as it tarnishes quickly.

    Those came from a different car, they where too wide and the wrong shape for the Chevy. So I cut and recurved them to follow the lines and hug the rear end, also modified the brackets, to get them closer to the body.

    I had them on 2 of my previous cars.. my '49 chevy front and rear, and just the rear on my '41. I think they looked good for what they were and what they were on... Some guy from a magazine called "Ol Skool Rodz" hated on 'em, but I'm not too worried about it ;)

  13. I like them, and they fill a niche` and look a hell of a lot better than rust... I mean "patina". Funny to see a thread bashing these bumpers while there's an active thread bitching about parts availability and another about how to make a late model SBC look like an early 283. Art Linkletter was right...."People Are Funny"!
