'68 Falcon Rear Bumper--Supplier Needed

Post #1 by '68falconohio » Mon Feb 15, 2010 8:26 pm

Today, the driver behind me didn't think my turn signal and brake lights were enough reason to stop. So, my bumper got tweaked. I got the, "this isn't my car, it's my cousin's and she has the insurance cards" after the derby action. Luckily, I have license plate ID# so I can pursue it that way.

What I can not find is a company who sells a replacement rear bumper for a '68 Falcon. I've looked at: NPD, Dearborn, Mac's Auto, and two others that my bud told me to check out(I can't remember their names). No dice.

Anyone have another suggestion? I'm just trying to price it right now.

Due to snow, I didn't get the car above 35mph today so I don't know how extensive the damage is. Visual inspection said it was just cosmetic damage.

Thanks!

8) might try autokrafters, but i doubt they have them either. i was looking for bumpers for a 66 falcon as a just in case deal, and i couldnt find any either. i have had a hard time finding steel bumpers for my 64 falcon for less than $300 which is what it would cost to straighten and rechrome mine. if you are willing to use fiberglass bumpers, try us body source, i think they have stuff for a 66-70 falcon.

Thanks rbohm,
No luck on autokrafters. US body source didn't have a fiberglass replacement either but I do not want a fiberglass bumper anyway. She's a driver, not a racer. I would probably be replacing/fixing rear frame stubs if I had a fiberglass bumper on it. I appreciate the sources though!

68Falconohio,
Try Tri-City Plating in Elizabethton Tenn. Ph# 1-800-251-7536 or 1-423-542-6532. This is who we ,in my area send ower bumpers to for re-plating. When they come to Charlotte Auto Fair they always have extra bumpers for sale. They do a great job and gaurantee then for life.
