Front bumpers
« on: March 02, 2006, 11:05:06 AM »
 I found that the bumpers off the 1974 to 1976 are the best bumpers to ues because they are steel...What other small bumpers that are steel work on the pintos..... The holes don't half to line up... I weld them to my shock plate...I heard one's off mavricks, and Ltd's will work....Any more info will help..

the strongest bumper ford came factory is the steel 79-91 fords but they would be way to stiff for one of these (and to wide but thats why they invented a cutting torch)

if the bumper is too strong and dont bend a little bit like it should the frame will bend instead of the bumper and then it will belly or not

the back bumper on the race car is off a 77 grand marquis station wagon.  And tude is right, the bumper never bent, but the frame sure as hell took a beating.

Heres a good picture of my impala bumper on an 80 bobcat. Bolts bent on it thats why its up on one side. I used the front the whole derby since the rear was junked at the last one.

ive also seen a guy take the outer part (chrome side) of a 79-91 ford bumper put it over the top of the factory aluminum by taking all the bolts out and running bigger bolts and washers going through the 2 and then the shock horn, it was on a fairmont i think, he won in the compact class so it worked good enough

i'm liking the way my crown vic bumper sits on the car.. it takes up alot of space and with a little cutting fits pretty good.
