Looking for the best '73-'77 chrome front bumper I can find that does not need Re-Chroming (already have one of those). Have cash or hard to find Chevy Van parts to trade. Thanks!

OK now were getting somewhere BUT I see one pic and it's not showing the condition of bumper. If by posting this does that mean your for hire to "pick" it off, wrap and send to Washington St.? If so I need better picks of the hole bumper and your opinion of condition. Up for it?

That’s what I saw today. The bumper is about 40 minutes west of me, I stopped to see if there was anything worth grabbing for myself before I went and worked on my van. To me, the bumper looked great, driver quality.

If you want it, I’d need a deposit.

do you want to talk more on the nos one?
Posted By: brigrat Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 15th 2020 6:47 pm
Sure, That would be nice!
Posted By: black79gmc Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 15th 2020 7:55 pm
Its still in its original green rubber jacket from GM back in the 70s. i took some chrome polish to an exposed spot and its like new. i dont think 600 delivered from new york to washington is feasible though
Posted By: brigrat Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 15th 2020 8:04 pm
I understand, just my luck my last piece of the puzzle has to be the furthest away! I would pay more if I could unload some of my extra sheet metal!
Posted By: black79gmc Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 15th 2020 8:13 pm
You should be glad you found one. i haven't seen one of these available in years even if at all
Posted By: brigrat Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 15th 2020 8:18 pm
I am more than glad I am crying as we speak!

Thank you!
Just went a couple blocks up the road and found this '76 Motorhome, 67K miles, lots of really nice front interior parts & front sheet metal. Solid front bumper & nice Chrome (just dirty), they must have pushed on something "soft" as the bumper is pushed in ever so slightly around the license plate. Can have the hole vehicle for free, no paper work, been sitting for 35 years. Might grab it and see if I can use a press to pull out the pushed in bumper area.
Shame about the grill!

i will list it in a few places and if it doesnt sell i will get back to you
Posted By: brigrat Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 16th 2020 3:14 pm
Thanks! Offer is good till I find one or a place to rechrome mine!
Posted By: black79gmc Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 16th 2020 3:39 pm
i dont know if you have any experience with rechomed bumpers but i do. its very expensive and the finish is very fragile.
Posted By: brigrat Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 16th 2020 4:37 pm
All good points above!
Here's a rear Winnebago chrome bumper that was about 8' wide when I started to build it for a '34 Ford p/u. I cut it down in the middle to length you see, rounded the ends and curved them inward and boxed the back side of the ends. Welded up bolt holes that weren't needed, weld, grind, fill and do all over again till chromed plater was happy. The platers in my area are getting harder to find but will do a triple plating job or a cheap job depending on what you want.
I don't think you are out of line wanting more for your bumper I just don't know how much more you want!

i want $750 for it not including shipping
Posted By: brigrat Re: WANTED; '73-"77 Chevy G10 Chrome Front Bumper - September 17th 2020 1:34 pm
Shipping is the deal breaker, just puts the total cost to high. I will wait and see if I can submit the one above on the motor home into shape without popping chrome. Thanks!

Put it on a bus ... way cheaper than mailin it.

Well it's 54 miles over a mountain pass but very beautiful and doable.
Before I get real excited lets see pic's of the little jewel. You seem to know what you have but lets make sure it's not a '78 or up as they are different!
