Alex, Are these production pieces you are looking for? If so you might want to try a "take off" parts place, salvage place like Mustang parts Specialties inc. their web site is stangparts.com and their phone #is 770-867-2644.
If I am wrong about the parts just say so.

I'll give them a try Bob as they are indeed production parts. Probably 40% of the Fox cars use the aluminum pieces.

Hmmmm... around here, I`d say less than 4% of the 79-82 Mustang/Capri`s had them! Alex, if you haven`t found an aluminum F bumper by the M&M meeting in Bellvue Wash. next year, I`ll bring one down for ya. I may even find another one between now & then.

No got Bob. They are out of them.
Thanks again for the tip though.


Thanks Rory, I may have to make a trip up to Mooseville and get a couple from you with the luck I'm having finding any around here.

What is the weight savings between the two?

Seeing that I have an 82 gt just sitting outside, and the ragtop is a pig, any weight saving is a good thing

Alex, have you considered using one of the fiberglass bumpers from the later foxes.I got one from a wrecked 88 lx coupe,and it will require some fabrication to make up brackets for the signals in the front ,but it should save about the same amount of weight.I'm not sure which ones had these bumpers ,but they might be easier to find than the aluminum ones.

Scott, the NHRA tech dept. scrutinizes us very carefully. The aluminum units were direct bolt ins and were indeed available from 79-89. Any modifications to a later glass unit would be deemed as an unacceptable modification or replacment.
Thanks for your advice though.

79' Pace Cars had aluminum rear bumpers. Some may have also come with aluminum front bumpers, but I can't verify that. I believe SVO's had aluminum front bumpers.

The vast majority of the regular fleet got steel units.

Good Luck!

Got a line on a couple. I'm trying to make contact with the guy. Unfortunately, they're not in the midwest.

If the information I read last night is correct, SVO's did not get aluminum bumpers. Also, they stopped using the aluminum bumper when 10 MPH bumpers were mandated by the government. So this makes 79 or 80 the last year for aluminum 5 MPH bumpers.

Like I said, if the info I read last night is correct.
