I have seen both the straight and "swayed down" bumper displayed in different pickup literature. The most common is the straight style on the rear of the Pickup. Is this the style you are looking for? If so, I might suggest you check with Mac's Antique Ford parts or Bob Drake's or Dennis Carpenter. They will all have reproduction bumpers, pickup and car. I do have one, but it is not available as long as I own my Pickup. The repro bumpers were under a $100 the last I looked.

36 bumper

I got mine from Bob Drake. Rock Valley also makes some nice bumpers. Rock Valley also makes short brackets if you want to bring the bumper in closer to the body. Bill

36 p/u bumper

35-36 Ford pick-up's never had a rear bumper as standard equiptment. If you see a bumper on any commercial vehicle, it was not designed for a comm. vehicle, and was most likely put on by the dealer on request, usually using a sedan or sedan delivery unit. So put on anything you think looks good.

Bob Drake gets $300 for the straight bumper and Dennis Carpenter did not know if they had one or not and did not know the price if they did.
I will try Mac's.
Thanks for the reply.

GMWillys, glad to see a statesman that is older than I!! The Deluxe model pickups (commercial) had rear bumpers as well as two horns, two tail lights, two wiper motors and stainless windshield trim and slightly different interior door and window cranks. I am not sure about clock, ash tray and radios, which were available. Colors and paint schemes were what ever the customer ordered though there were standard Ford colors produced for show room sales.

Blyde, you may want to look at the shortened bumper brackets. The stock ones put the rear bumper too far back and makes a great shinn knocker. I shortend my own but they were car brackets. The truck brackets are two piece and bolt onto the out side of the frame rail and on the cross member while the car bolts onto the crossmember at the end of the frame rail. I can send you a pic if you like.

Thanks for the replies
I have shortened my car rear bumper brackets and I think they will work fine.
If not I have found repo short ones at an affordable price.
What I can not come up with is a affordable bumper.
