1974 thru 1978 Mustang II's
#1
Hi guys. I was wondering if anyone out there knows if the 74-78 mustangs II's ever came with metal bumpers? I am in the process of sanding and doing the body work on my nephews 74 and his plastic bumpers are pretty rough. I was hoping to be able to find some metal ones and cut and tuck them into the body a little nicer and then just paint them to match the body. If i can find some i will probably weld up the bolt holes also. If anyone out there has any knowledge of metal bumpers on these cars please let me know. And if you know of any places selling parts for these little mustangs let me know.
Thanks Kevin

I'm by no means an expert on the II's but have owned 2 of them over the years. Every one I've ever seen has had the same type bumper.

Yeah don that's all I have seen so far In my research. The bumpers are pretty ugly. Trying to make them a little nicer for a 16 year old kid. Give his car a little something extra.

Keep us posted on how the bumper project turns out for you. You might consider Maverick bumpers. 74 and up are big, 73 are medium and 72 and down are the small thin ones.

Maverick bumpers sound like a good choice too. Thanks for the input.

How about giving him a v-8 for a little something extra? Big Grin
The two I had were 4-cyl cars and had very little power.

I had a '78 King Cobra w/4speed back in the day. Should of kept it!

All 74-78 stangs had urethane bumpers.
There was a company that made fiberglass replacement bumpers but I can't remember which one.

You can try some of the 74-78 mustang forums.

He definately dont need a v8 just yet. This little 4 banger runs really good in this car. Its a 4 speed so that helps some. and it only has 70000 miles on the car. Its a really solid nice car. if he can keep it between the ditches for the first year, I have a 302 sitting in the garage that i was thinking about rebuilding for him. So there may be a v8 in the future of this car if he can keep it in one piece. i know my first car didnt last very long. come to think of it neither did my 2nd 3rd or 4th!!! Big Grin
