Front bumpers should work from '67-'72 Valiants, Scamps and Dusters

You could have the bumper straightened and replated and look better than even when it was oem new.
Ogden Plating does a fantastic job on repair and chrome plating.
They also have free shipping.
I compared their price with a local bumper shop and OP cost was about $100 more, but the quality of their work is far superior and to me worth the few extra dollars.

Looks like the rest of it will straighten out but you probably tweaked the uniframe. You should have that checked and pulled, if necessary, by a reputable frame shop.

It was parked in front of the house. Driver lost control of her Impala and slammed it at about 25 to 30 mph. Pushed it back about 12 feet or so. Have not got the hood up yet for further inspection as the latch is messed up and jammed up in the bumper. I'll try to get it open tomorrow. Sheesh!

Great...her insurance co. will want to hand you a check for $1,000 and total it to sweep it under the rug. You'll have to fight to prevent that and a salvage title when it's all done. I just love insurance co's.

She was uninsured. Hopefully my insurance company will work with me. As of December '13 the car's value is around 3500 dollars. I sure like driving it but want it fixed. When these older cars are straight and clean they turn heads and catch eyes too. But once they get "beat up" they're just an old POS running the streets. Sad really. We'll keep you posted as we progress.

That REALLY sucks. I hope the cops confiscated her license, if she even had one.

File for a judgement on her Drivers liscence , At least next time she will go straight to jail for the night. And if she ever wantsto get it back to be legal ( ) she will have to pay it.
Its amazing, even with ABS people still cant drive.

The insurance company totaled it for $2, 600. I bought it back for $300. I only paid $1, 500 for it. No salvage title here because of the year. It's all good. Got a newer front bumper from a guy up north. Not perfect, but better than the crumpled one. Gotta get bumper brackets now.
