NOS OEM Ford 1973 Mustang Rear Bumper Chrome Trim
#1
All,

It is cheaper to buy this NOS OEM Ford 1973 Mustang Rear Bumper Chrome Trim than to have one re-chromed. Average re-chrome between $400 to $550.

Thanks,
mustang7173 Thankyouyellow

That is a good price on an NOS bumper. The repops are not great.

Look at the pics ... it is all scratched up - he even states it is for a driver car.

Keep in mind a lot of the NOS parts people have now were dealer rejects and sent back because of defects.

For sure needs to be re chromed. NOS does not mean show quality.
I hear you on what it costs to chrome something. I have a 57 T-bird front bumper that I had chromed and cannot sell it to save me. Could have sold if not chromed. Also have several 64 Ford Galaxy rear bumpers same thing cannot sell because I had them chromed, big mistake.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

I often wonder how much of the "new old stock" is a warrantied or insured accident part that was placed in the box the replacement came in and was never discarded. Years and years roll by and suddenly somebody finds this "new old stock" piece at an auction or flea market of an old Ford dealership bodyman..

Metro Plating in Mesa, AZ straightens and rechromes bumpers in the $285 range. Nice work too. They also starightened my 69 front bumper that FedEx tried to destroy.

That particular one has the rubber strip mounting holes already drilled. I don't think any of the repros have the holes predrilled. If you decide to spend the bucks to have one rechromed, it is always better to drill those holes before it is re-chromed.

Local shop quoted me $275 a few years ago.

I'm sure you can find a shop near you for about the same price.
