1967-1969 Barracuda bumper on a 1965 Barracuda?
Unfortunately someone crashed into my '65 Barracuda and luckily it's really mostly the fender, but the bumper is bent as well. The chrome on it wasn't great to start with, so I've been looking for a new one for a while. There is currently one on ebay for $650 plus shipping... I don't want to spend that much!
1967-69 Barracuda bumpers are way cheaper and I think it would result in a much sleeker look.
Has anyone ever tried this?
I looked and the '67 Barracuda is about 1-1/2" wider than a '65. That's only 3/4" on each side and negligible. The frame rails should be in the same place on both cars, because you can put a later A-body K-frame on a '65.
I see three options:
A. The mounting holes are magically in the same place and it just bolts on.
B. The mounting holes are in different places and I have to drill/ cut new holes to fit them to my '65 brackets.
C. I'd have to get '67 bumper brackets and I may have to notch the valance in case it interferes.
Does anyone have a '67-'69 bumper and could measure the distance between all mounting holes?
