I just purchased a 1962 Valinat and its rear bumper is bent. Before I
start researching places to have it straightened and rechromed, I
wanted to check here to see if anyone knows of a supplier or honest
salvage yard (preferably in the Houston area) that sells these
I am not sure how many model years and which MoPar models used this
bumper but I assumed it was a few years and used on both the Lancer
and Valiant (maybe the early Barracudas as well).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I would think that a bumper from any 1960 - 1962 Lancer or Valiant
would fit. Some included bumper guards on the front and rear. You may
wish to try car-parts.com. A long time ago, there was a salvage yard
in rural Missouri that specialized in early Chrysler products. I think
the name was "R & R Salvage" if my memory is correct.
It may be just as easy and cost effective to have your current bumper
repaired and re-chromed.
There's a sheet metal place behind Sears on Shepard drive(or was) you
might check and see if they are still there. I have bought
hoods,grills, etc. there in the past. They sell all new crated
imported parts for about the same as a wrecking yard.
