Default Need photos of rear bumpers on roadster pickup

I would like to place a complete rear bumper (like the front) on my 31 Roadster pickup. I am in need of photos of different ways to do this.
Can you help.

Thanks for all the great information in this site.

Henry,

I also have a '31 roadster pickup. You seem to be directing your question to roadster pickups. Is there any reason you didn't ask about pickups?

Here's mine, should be the same on an open pickup:

Do the search like Mitch said in post #2, lots of good ideas there.

Ol'e Henry's seems a bit stingy with the personal information. I have little talent at sending pictures and am limited to e-mail. The actual, but undisclosed location does have some bearing on the response to his bumper question. Late last year I removed the rear bumper from my '30 pickup. As the pickup goes back together, removing as much of the incorrect features that I can afford to replace, whether I ever use the bumper is still undecided, trending to not. Disappointing when site regulars still won' share their location. Good Luck: Fred A

Hi Fred:

I was surprised with your answer. Did not know it was a requirement to place information in that section. In any case I found it and filled information. I hope this will help in sharing information?
I appreciate all I have learned from this site, and those willing to share information to help keep our beloved A's on the road.

I recently installed a rear bumper on my 31rpu, because i couldn't dismiss the idea of the fenders and tailgate out there so exposed to damage.
I also added a rumble step plate on each side, to allow for easier bed access.

You posted, "I hope this will help in sharing information?". We have seen here many times posts that go," hey I'm just a couple of towns over from you I'll come by and ....." Or "I'm an engine rebuilder in the same state as you so you can save on shipping as it's fairly local."


Get the idea? No a location is not a requirement that I have seen but, you never know if help is around the corner if no one knows what corner you are on.

Since you have added your location I see you a couple of hours south of Mike's Afordable. Give Mike a call and see if he can help you out. He would also have the parts you need and could show you in person how they attach as I beleive he also does restorations.

Could you post a picture of how the step plates are mounted? That sounds like a really good idea.

If the truck is driven, the bumper is a good idea. doesn't take much of a hit to put a buckle in the top of the fender. Those are tough to fix correctly. Mine are not extended, the tailgate will drop straight down making it easier to load and unload.

Henry, I used a set of rear bumper brackets for a 31 roadster. I had to remove the stands and fabricate longer ones for the pickup. I used the existing frame holes. I used 2 short brackets at the crossmember.
I will email pictures if you need.

Hi Henry,
I think the 2 short bumpers suits the pick up, but each to his own.

This was on my 1929 CCPU when I bought It, might be an era accessory
