Was checking out a fully restored '64 convertible the other day and there was something on it I haven't seen before . It has a rubber bumper up on the body above the rearend ?? This is a totally stock car , my '64 Daytona doesn't have this bumper and it isn't shown in the parts book . Does anyone have any idea on these ??
I did take a couple pics of it if that will help.

Here's a pic of it

It's a snubber and it was stock on the 4-spd cars. I took one off of a Cruiser awhile back.:) Chassis book. Look up Illust# 1521-7 then look below all the "BRACKET" listings until you see "PLATE and STUDS";)

1957 Transtar 1/2ton
1963 Cruiser
1960 Larkvertible V8
1958 Provincial wagon
1953 Commander coupe
1957 President two door

Did they come on a car if it was originally equipped with traction bars? I wouldn't see how it would be useful if the rear windup was contained.

My 64 Cruiser came with one.

They were used on all 113 in. wheelbase Sedans/Wagons, but not on 109 in. Hardtops/2 Dr's. unless 4 Speed equipped.

Man, that Convertible is not restored, it's ten times OVER restored! Amazing! [:p]
The only downside would be, you could never get it wet, without undercoating. Wouldn't work in Washington, LOL! :D

there's no pic in the chassis parts book, and I don't know that I've ever seen one... does anyone have a similar pic of one installed in a C-K? Or better yet have the part they could sell me?

Pat Skelly's [u]'62</u> GT Hawk (4 speed car) has one...

I very carefully hacked around it to cut the floor pan off...
(With a SawZall, 20 gauge sheet metal cuts faster than bolts[:0])
Contact Emily Skelly ... VPSkelly at aol.com
She will give it to you (if you take the frame it it bolted to;):D)....)
