Identifying this possible bumper from a 67 68 Camaro.

Hello
I recently found this bumper wrapped and tucked into the corner of the attic of the garage. With some research, I thought it could possibly come from a 67 or 68 Camaro. But Iím not a Camaro expert and was hoping someone here could look at the pictures and let me know if it could be from a Camaro. Itís 65 inches long and 13 inches wide.
Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

Re: Identifying this possible bumper from a 67 68 Camaro.

I assume "13 inches wide" is a typo ? Otherwise, it looks/sounds like a 67-8 Camaro front bumper.

Most likely measured width as if you needed a box to stick it in. The box would have to be big enough to fit 65 long x 13 wide x 3 or 4 maybe deep.

Re: Identifying this possible bumper from a 67 68 Camaro.

Regarding the measurements, the last post recorded it properly. Itís 65 inches wide, 13 inches deep and the height is 3 inches although it depends on exactly where and how you measure the height.

Re: Identifying this possible bumper from a 67 68 Camaro.

If it is a Camaro bumper it is for the 1967 model year judging from the two extra holes.

Re: Identifying this possible bumper from a 67 68 Camaro.

You're referring to the lower corner bracket holes, Mike ? If it has the 2 small holes at the center (3 total) for the 68 bracket and pad, it likely is an early reproduction (67/8 universal fit).

Yes, the two outer holes. I haven't see a reproduction (aside from AMD) that has the 67 outer holes. I have seen 68 bumpers mounted on a 67, but without the outer two holes.
