Need '61 Impala r. bumper,

Recommended Posts

I really need the rear bumper for the SMP 1961 Impala kit.  I'm restoring a very bad customizing job I did on it in '61, no less (look at my photo!) and losing the bumper was part of it.  I have early '60s parts, incl grilles, bumpers and wheel covers to trade.  I'm EZ!  Help a 73 year old modeler finish up his collection from 'back when'!  :-<)

Thanks to everyone out there who has helped me with parts so far!  You're great!

Wick, FYI - with a little trimming, a Lindberg 61 bumper is a close fit. So are the taillights if you need 'em. Ask me how I know...

You're welcome, Wick.

The Lindberg bumper is just a touch too narrow, but if you sand just the insides of the ends to widen it up, you can make it fit and save the chrome on it to boot.

Nobody will know it's not the original, unless you tell them. 

Best wishes.
