Anyone got any shots of 32s running later model bumpers? Looking for suggestions/ideas. Thanks!
A 41 bumper has been used a few times, and it looks better than it sounds. Aussie Steve's 32 3-window comes to mind, but I don't have any photos.
Google the Ed Bosio roadster, it was Vic Edelbrock Sr's originally, Bosio bought it and it was AMBR winner one year. Might have had '41 bumpers like @alchemy mentioned above, but when it won the big trophy I think Bosio had wisely switched the bumpers for custom nerfs.
Stock, nerfs or none for me on a Deuce.
why thinking about "dare to be different" later bumpers?
IMHO bumpers don't get any sexier that the Deuce but here is a odd bumber on a 32. HRP
How about a Model A bumper? HRP
And a couple more. HRP
That is from a 1932 Ford truck, not the Commercial vehicles, but the big 1 ton and up trucks.
The last one is fabricated but simply too cool not to share.
I’m not sure but I worked on a BB truck that had that same bumper , maybe that could be BB bumper
Nope. '32 bumper.
A few of these look much like a snow plough, just because you can ....
32s are slim and trim remember , big ass bumper tips on a big ass 40s bumper and desoto bumper in my mind are jut too heavy for a light 32 . Its all about the balance. Nerf bars look cool. You could do a model A bumper , then Joe public says “cool model A” your heart sinks.
I have pondered this myself, and come to the same conclusion that the above photos show:
The only bumper that looks good on a ‘32, is an original bumper, or no bumper at all !
I’m happy to be proved wrong..... bttt
All these pictures don't improve a 32 at all.
I belong to the 32 only bumper or no bumper crowd. Just my opinion though.
Why change one of the most beautiful pieces of a 32 ?
Really has anyone compared the photo in the first post to a 32 Double B Truck ? The one I worked on looked to me to have the very same bumper as the photo , I’m not sure but looks very similar
Looks like a BB bumper to me !
I always wondered what a ‘33 / ‘34 bumper would look like on a deuce ?
This looks good and smooth....

Compare it? No, but I did mention what it was.
"Not My Cup Of Tea But Deuces Were Created Long Before Me"....
The stock '32 bumper is perfect as is on a 1932 Ford. No other bumper looks as good on a '32 !

You are correct , I seem to have been in an exhaust haze and missed your post Fordors , I’m sorry .
Aussiesteve's 3-window with bumpers from a '41 woodie; very hard to find.
The beauty of building hot rods is you can do what you like, it want necessarily appeal to every onr but if you like it that's all that matters, I can't think of any other bumper that looks as good as the original Deuce bumper, they even look good on Model A's and early Plymouths. HRP
Now that looks good.
On a different note, if I may, thanks for posting those pictures. I was just about to ask for a photo shop of a matt black ‘32 with that colour rims and white walls.
Now I don’t need too.
