All we can do is guess but since the original engine was a 2bbl 350, I think sometime after 1980 a previous owner installed the new intake and carburetor from a 80 and disabled all the emissions hoses at the same time.

Thanks Doug.

I sent a message for the bumper but I just found your message today:(

I had a lot of problems with my house and I had to work in my basement since my last post. ( french drain change both side of the house)

So after that $20000 + work and three weeks, I can now return to my car. I bought a new steering wheel and hope to find a bumper just like the one on your ad.

Car is running good, not a lot of power but..... still a pleasure to listen to the v8 sound

Basement , what is that? ( just kidding.... havent had a basement since I left NY:D)

I can relate Frederic, my NY house had a hill in the back yard ( about 3 feet from the the back of the house) and we got a ton a water in the basement. The previous owner had a series of channels running along the wall to direct the water to a drain in the floor. After huge snowfall winters that didnt work too well ,so I coated the wall with that UGL rubber stuff, which stunk up the house pretty good but slowed the leaks down to just a dribble. Couldnt put anything outside the wall cause the first level was a cement terrace which led to 3 more railroad tie and dirt terraces.

Good luck on your bumper hunt............Doug in P.R.:cool:

Hi Doug.

The bumper is now in my garage. Shipping and customs cost me a lot but at least I found one.

Thanks for your help. Now I need to find a mounting bar or make one to put between the shocks and the bumper.

One more time thank you for your help and the dedicated sub-forum

Your welcome Frederic, Sal came through with the Sub forum this week.

Customs aren't fun I know, I forgot to tell you to have them send it as a Gift.

( no extra charges) The guys on the Hbody site gave me that idea.

You have a pic of the part you need?

Maybe I can help.....................;)

Its just 1/8th steel plate that runs along the whole bumper?

Any metal supply shop can cut you a piece to your measurements.
