Look at other bumpers, something like the 67-72 Chevy C10 would probably look nice, and they all have the licence bracket on the rear. Also don't rule out other makes and models cars or trucks. My buddy Grail is building one of the sickest GEN1 Chevy vans I've ever seen. He used a 60's model Ford Thunderbird rear bumper, flipped it upside down, narrowed it, slapped it on the front, and added giant 50's bullets. laugh

Customs are fun to build but IMO you can't just do one thing, it's either mild or full on. Here's a '34 Ford P/U I wanted a better back bumper than stock, ended up taking an 8' Winnebago, shorting it a bunch, curling the ends in a bit and boxing back side ends. Pull out a pin and the license plate pulls off to expose a receiver for a towing ball.
I think I will just order a '78, make it fit & keep my '75 rear and have it done in the winter when van won't be used.

Man that Winnie bumper turned out killer!

I've been scouring my local scrapyard with a stash of vans and found 1 good chrome front bumper, but zero rears. Not sure where I'm going to find one yet.
