I bought 5 NOS bumpers from a passed away collector , he had tons of old car parts, anyway, The original sticker on it says "master number 164852" can anyone shed some light on this. I would post a picture but they are still wrapped in some type of oily paper and i don't want to stripe em right now, but i did peel back one corner and the chrome looks great.....Thanks...

I know pics would be nice but i was thinking somebody might have a manual to look up the numbers....I will try to get a pic. My guess is they are late 30's or 40's GM. My neighbor thought they might be 1943 chevy.....Real cute.......

Or Buick. Or Cadillac. Or GMC. Or Pontiac. Or Oldsmobile. Or Opal, Acadian (1962–1971, Canada), Asüna (1993, Canada), Beaumont (1966–1969, Canada), Bedford Vehicles (1930–1987, UK), Elmore (1909–1912), Envoy (1960–1970, Canada), Geo (1989–1997), LaSalle (1927–1940), Marquette (1930), Oakland (1907–1931), Rapid Truck (1909–1912), Reliance Truck (1909–1912), Samson Tractor (tractor manufacturer- bumpers? Prolly not) (1917–1922), Statesman (1971–1984), Viking (1929–1931). (Thanks, Wiki!)

Thanks eloc, At least someone tried to help, all i asked is weather someone can translate the GM numbers for me. Shooooo :rolleyes: I'm going to the "Back to the 50's" car show at the Mn. fair grounds on the 20th. I will be looking at bumpers I guess. Yea, I ruled out hummer and Saturn as they are very simple, as the 40's were....

All you need to do is post a photo and I am sure someone here will be able to tell you.

Simply go to Google.com. then click on "Images" and type in 1950 Chevy or what ever you want and you will see pages of photos of that car.

It is MOST CERTAINLY not a 49-52 Chevy ANYTHING. Not car, they wrap around the fenders, not truck, they are nearly flat and round at the ends.

Just google the photos and look.

Besides, if I had those for sale, not knowing what they are off of is sometimes a good thing. I would put them on eBay and with a list of every car and year they could fit so EVERYONE can find your ad. :D
