  • 1956 Wagon Bumpers???

    Is the rear bumper the same as the 55 sedan? And the front the same as the Hawk? Or am I thinking wrong.

    I think its more ike the '53 coupe, but I think there is a slight difference. There was a vendor at the meet at Omaha a couple of years ago and he was explaining it to me but I can't remember now. Just to look at them, they look about the same.

      "Looks" aren't everything~ better check your parts book!!!

      The front does interchange '56 sedan/wagon to '56 (and up) C/K...
      but the rear bumper for the '54-'56 wagons is a one and only piece.

      I'm not saying it won't fit~ just telling you what is in the book.

        Thanks studedave 57. My front bumper is repairable but the back is not. It was hit right on the corner and bent under the car. I had a chance to get a rechromed front at South Bend and didn't do it. Now I'm trying to kick myself.

            I am still thinking about puting the 56 Commander back bumper on it. At least I have a extra one. But the first thing I would hear is ITS NOT STOCK or I WOULDN'T HAVE DONE IT THAT WAY.
