The Corvair is close but not it. Good guess though...

I tried looking at a bunch of GM bumper guard pictures but no luck.

I'm stumped.

Maybe this should get mover to a "What is it?" type of area.

Well, if it can't be confirmed early 67 cars had this style of guard, I'd say it's either a repop or possibly an over the counter replacement (GM). It wouldn't be too difficult to drill some holes for the insert studs.

Tell us more about the car that these came with. Was it an early build ? Did it have the holes in the tailpanel for the bumper guards ? As I mentioned, those fasteners are definitely factory. Could be the guards were a replacement and the original fasteners were transfered ?

Who knows, just speculating.....

I posted the question on CRG website.

A guy over there (Ed), in his words:
VERY early 67 bumper guards were like that". "They're VERY rare, and were only used for the first few weeks of production."

The car that they came with was not that early of a production number. Not sure where the parts came from. They were in a box of spare parts when I bought the car.

Would love to see them go on a period correct car. Could be hard finding someone that has a car from the first few weeks of production.

Don't need to be able to put my son through college from the sale but, if the above is true, what would be a fair and reasonable price for these?

Bill, going to be hard to put a price on since what do you compare them to as I have never seen a set before let along what any of them have sold for in the past. Small market (# of people who would want/need) but for those who could use I'm sure they would be willing to pay up.....

Default Re: Bumper guards with no rubber inserts

I took a set of these off a camaro years ago. Guy replaced with repop bumper. I posted the info here and nobody at the time seemed puzzeled. I no longer have car i put them on and original bumper still on them. They had a LO on both hold brackets. I assumed either 67 or may 67 (07) . some kind of dating. My personal opinion was they were factory installed for blacked out rear panal for the big block cars with bumperette ordered option. Appearance from rear looked better with all chrome guard. The car i took them off was a July 67 L78 camaro that before guy died told me they were on car. He was the second owner of car.

COOL ! Yeah, Ed's been around a time or 2.

Would like to hear the whole story behind these guards, but I'd imagine they used adhesive for the rubber insert and it failed ! Note the tit at the top where the rubber butts up to. They're identical to the common 67/8 version with out the slot for mounting the rubber.

Still though, to the right person, your originals should be worth a premium....

Good luck !

My 05e l78 has the large bumperette with the inserts.

Since you're from Brookfield WI maybe they came from CPX in Milwaukee. Worked there for many years and recall having several pair of those.

Garth these never had rubber nor was it intended to have rubber on it according to Ed. They were meant to be solid chrome.

I don't see anything. On the "fixed" bracket with the tapped hole, right?

The car spent much of its life in the Oconomowoc (mid-80's thru 92ish) it then did a brief stint in South Dakota before returning to Oconomowoc.
I believe the car was owned by a body shop owner in Oconomowoc who restored it for his son who took it to South Dakota. The car had sat for a long time next to the body shop after returning from South Dakota.(10 years) I bought it from a Police Officer in Oconomowoc who had purchased it from the body shop owner.
Long story short, it is possible they came from CPX. Maybe bought by the body shop owner? Would have been before 92ish. I'm sure the police officer I got the car from didn't buy them.

The owner of CPX bought the building in 1985 and remained there until 1997. So it's possible. We also set up at Jefferson for many years.

Rear bumper guards were easy to locate in decent condition. Fronts were usually bent.

Probably many people are trying to figure out how to pronounce Oconomowoc.
