Hey, what are the differences between the front and rear bumpers on my 65 Cruiser? The part numbers in the body catalog are different (1560772W and 1560774W), but the ONLY difference I can see is that there's two additional holes on the rear bumper where the license plate mounts.

Is there something else I'm missing? I have one crunched front bumper I'd like to get rechromed then replace my rear bumper (which has some weak chrome). I just didn't want to run around without a bumper while it was being plated.:(

on the early LARK's they are the same with the addition of the extra holes you mention, I don't know about later LARK's, they look the same front and back?

The extra holes on the rear bumper are for the liscence plate light wires. I put a rear bumper on the front of my 64 Cruiser. I used the brackets off the front one. I just moved the guards in to cover the holes.[8D]

Yup, they look identical except for the holes.
