The first cars built in 1962 were fitted with different design steel front bumper supports. The rubber attachments on the bumper-ends have remained unchanged throughout the years. During all years, each front bumper has four remaining bolt mounting points. Both bolt-holes towards the centre of the bumper generally have the over-riders fitted to the bumper.
The front bumper of these early vehicles are installed to the car-body by means of 4 instead of 2 brackets. Please refer to attached photo which shows the arrangement underneath GHN3L / 137. This bracket arrangement has been traced on cars upto GHN3 / 1957. Should your car have this bracket arrangement we would like to hear from you.
