Well, I took the bumper out of the box and looked at it. First of all, it is BRAND NEW OLD STOCK (it still has a plastic like film on it). Second, I noticed a very small dent (that I took a good picture of). Third, I don't know if it is a front or rear (based on the label on the box)(which I took a good picture of also). If anybody is interested, and knows what it goes to, let me know.
Thanks,
Jon

also, I would think it is a rear bumper, the box said R bumper, and the front bumpers usualy had a flat spot for the liscense plate to sit. I have my damaged gen 1 stage 2 bumper from a 77 wagon that I can take pics and compare, but I'll need some daylight to retrieve it.

I know that it isn't for a gen 1 BRAT. I have a NOS one for my BRAT, and it isn't the same as that. This one has square holes for some kind of trim or something. It also has oval shaped holes on the ends (as you can see in the pics). The gen 1 BRAT bumper is more or less square, and pretty straight. This bumper is shaped like a dang banana!

the square holes are for the bumper mounting brackets, there is a chrome round headed bolt with a square underside that keeps it from turning while you tighten it down. the oval slots are for the black rubber bumper end thingies. It looks a lot like the one i pulled off my wagon, i'll try to get some measurements tomorrow. how much you want for it?

anyways, I NEED a rear bumper for a 77 stage 2 wagon? anyone? (don't care if it's stock, any gen one wagon bumper will do.)

No. Paul didn't get it. It's just too expensive, for me at least and I assume that's why nobody else has bought it yet. Although there is a similar bumper on ebay for the same price, unless that one is this one.

I thought I PM'd everybody back that sent me a PM. If I didn't sorry. I told everybody I paid a hundred bucks. I would like to get as much of my money back as possible since I can't use it on a 79 brat (which is what it was listed as)(with bad pictures I might add).
I just finished scanning the WHOLE 1979 Parts Catalog, SO......I typed the part numbers of the one on ebay and the one that I have into my Adobe and it searched the whole parts catalog. Here is what it came up with. The one on ebay is a rear 77 4wd station wagon. The one that I have is a rear 77 stage II or 78 4wd station wagon. I told everybody that PM'd me to make me an offer. If somebody wants it.......make me an offer. To me and my BRAT, it's useless! :)

Thanks,
Jon

Jon,
I don't think $100 is unreasonable. We'll work something out. I'll take it up through PM.
Thanks,
John

John: Just take a 2x4 and paint it white. Use house paint for an extra added touch of sparkle.

You know, like the one in your Avatar had.
