  • 50-51 bumper question

    Are 50 and 51 car bumpers the same between years and between cars? I have a set that appear to match a 51 Commander but I would like to know what else they fit.

    Thanks!

    I believe the rear bumpers are the same. The front bumper from a 50 will not interchange with a 51-52 because the holes are placed differently.

      Here is a 1950 Champion on ebay, but notice it has 51 taillight lenses and taillight rims.
      The bumpers, or at least the bumper horns are also 1951 both front and rear.

        1950 Commander is all to itself.

        '50 Champion and '51 bumpers look almost identical but the top edge across the '50 bumper is raised up, whereas it's flat on the '51.

        Front and rear is also different between all years, the fronts have 2 extra holes for the license plate bracket, rears don't as the plate is mounted on the deck lid.

          Thanks! I will probably have to take some measurements and pictures to ID what I have.
