Advanced Design Bumper

During the 1947-1955 years, pickup’s front and rear bumpers are different due to the shape of the body. Unfortunately, the front can be fit on the rear during restorations.

More of this occurs on trucks between 1951 to 1955 when rear bumpers became a factory option. Years later when the rear bumper is wanted, some people locate a more plentiful front and place it on the rear – and it fits.

Once the front is placed on the rear, it is so rounded that it hits the license plate position. Now the license get relocated so it can be seen. (One problem leads to another.)
