USED BUMPER INFO

LISTED PRICE includes delivery in '48 states.

Add 9 % Sales Tax (Washington State Only)

CONDITION:
Many of the problems may not be as apparent when bumper is mounted on a car, (unless you are sitting on the ground looking at it). It is difficult to show the true condition of chrome parts, in some cases the pictures have been adjusted to try to show the damage clearly when it may not be that clear when on the car. When you remove them and then stare at them in your hands; that's when things become more "visible"; especially when holding them at some weird angle you'd never see with the bumper mounted on the car unless it was up on a hoist or you were standing on your head! We try to be pretty nit-picky on describing these grills to avoid anyone being surprised and unhappy.

Keep in mind some of the pictures showing a ding are REALLY ENLARGED so you have to keep that part of the bumper in perspective when you look at the ding.

BUMPER MOUNTING BRACKETS do not normally come with bumpers and bumpers are priced and sold without the brackets. Sometimes we just leave them on; in that case they are "free". These are sometimes available new or used at the time you purchase a bumper; or you can fabricate a replacement. Please inquire at the same time you order.

Grill Price Includes UPS Delivery to 48 states (can be up to $75)

DEDUCT 10% if the item is prepaid with a United States Postal Money Order Info

Items we try to note on these used bumpers.

Dents, Gouges, Twists to Bumper or attached Guards.

Broken bolts still stuck in the bumper or a guard.

Stripped or Missing welded on nut(s) for the Guards or Bumper Mount Brackets. Other damage to guards or mount brackets still on a bumper. Any chrome peeling or discoloration or fading or "extra" holes in bumper or guards.

Bumpers with more damage are usually also available; at much reduced prices. They are put up on the website as we have time. (Or please email)

ANY Bumper can be used on ANY car; listed year just refers to which year the grill originally came on.

63-67.5 has hole for license lamp.
68 has hole for lamp with an indented area so it looks better.
69-70 has no hole since car has license lamps on car's rear panel.

BELOW HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE USED BUMPERS; I'M JUST TYPING TO AMUSE MYSELF...

THE GOOD and THE BAD

The GOOD: In the late 70s; Nissan was getting rid of "old" parts. The fronts were $19 and the rears were $17. I was selling them for about $40; about half of the "retail" price but still felt like a BANDIT. We bought pallets of them they filled our house; under the couch, under the beds and ANOTHER storage unit we finally rented.

The BAD: We sold them over time; a lot of time. If you had told me then I'd be doing this 40 years later or that the cars and roadster people would be around 40 years later I would have laughed in your face. How could I know I had created a monster (Rallye) that would never let me alone; never let me rest... I didn't wise up and see what was happening until 11,000 people bought our old black catalog; we sent it out and the phone company told us we were responsible for bringing the 847 prefix to its virtual knees. All these years later I'm still the just same guy fooling around with cars in the garage.

Even if I'd wanted to save them for posterity; still had to pay the current bills for teeny house; wife's college; new daughter etc etc etc. Everybody looks back and wonders why they let that perfect Datsun or Corvette or vintage bike slip through their fingers but "forgets" that at the time the money was needed elsewhere.
