I have always thought a '55 Chevy looks so cool when the front bumper has been removed. HRP

The '52-54 Fords look good also.
The 54 Chevys look great too. HRP
By '57, the bumper was optional lol
None of the above.
Not my pics, but any highboy..........
I'm gonna go with o/t '67-'68 chevy f-body cars with the hideaway headlights.....
And all of the above.
I know, no pics never happened - but, in High school had a '55 Chevy Hot Rod that I took the front bumper & splash pan off & coils packed full of spacers for the race car look - but, it was totaled in wreck when hit by drunk driver - transferred drive train to a replacement '57 Chevy - parents said to leave bumper on, OK ? - one day parents head out for the day - I hit the garage & just get bumper unbolted and parents come driving back - they forgot something - Yikes!
Model A's always look great without a bumper.
and the Deuce shells don't distract ether. HRP
'40 Ford pickup. HRP
55 Chevy. Never ran one on my 55.
Home made nerf bars - like it better than when it had bumpers.
How’s this ?
Drove my 50 Merc like this back in the 70's..........
Love the paint!!!!!....
Guys, guys, guys! I don'r consider tri-five Chevy's or any fifties cars to be "Hot Rods". To my mind, a "Hot Rod" as a stripped down modified automobile from the twenties or (mainly) the thirties. That being said, NONE OF THEM!.
Had all the trim polished and chrome done for my 57 150....Somehow the front bumper never made it to the plater
Grey Baskerville's 32.
Not a big bumper fan on mine.

1962 had to run C/Gas with a full upholstered daily driver street car.... as Modified Production wasn't a class yet....sold her about a year too soon...303 Olds/Cad LaSalle....Cop didn't care about No front bumper, but did write me up for No Front Plate...hung one under the grille splash apron...
Model A's with fenders look fine without bumpers.
Not a fan of the no bumper look. My cars always have all the chrome and stainless they left the factory with. No bumper to me looks unfinished. My 64 Biscayne is that way.
I kinda think 55-56 Chevys look the best, as long as all the rest of the car falls into place. Mitch
HOT RODS are 1948 and older!
