    I really need a rear bumper for my 72. I think 72 thru 79 are the same.
    If I could find both that would be great. I think I can fix my front bumper... The back is bent and dented. Thanks in advance for any help or leads.

    That bumper looks beautiful, especially compared to Babe's rear bumper, which had been pushed into a post, as well as smacked from behind. Those small dents yours has could be knocked out, but the chrome is the question. Are you going for removing the dents, straightening its mounting, or as close to a concours resto as you can get?

    Did you know the "Marx" family on Auburn and Warren?
    Ralph Marx is a friend of mine, he lives in Novi area now but he had older brothers that went to Cody, one name was Gary and he had two more older bros but I forgot their names.
    I met Ralph when I worked at the BURGER KING from age 16 to18 at the Fairlane Town Center mall...the BK is gone now.
