    Anyone know where I can find these, other than Classic Industries, that doesn’t yet have them? Any other rubber bumpers needed for hideaway headlights?

    I couldn't find any either. I had to make one of my own out of a similar bumper. Its not quite the right size, but it works.

      Lost out on a set of NOS not long ago on ebay. Seller told me that the buyer was getting them to have them reproduced.

      On eBay. They say for GM vehicle and eBay says won’t fit my car. They sure look the same, wonder if I can mode them?

      Does your originals have a part number molded into it? If so, what is the number? We reproduce a lots of the different rubber bumpers, and several of them cross over to other applications. Looks somewhat similar to the hood bumpers as used on some of the 37 to mid 50s hood applications.

      Most of the factory style bumpers would either have the stacked DPCD logo or the Pentastar emblem with a seven digit part number. For the bumper as shown above, I would say that the number is a molding number for the manufacture.

      Take a look at the Restoration Specialties and Supply website as they have a wide selection of rubber bumpers, both reproductions and NOS. Possibly, if you will email them with detailed dimensions and pictures, they can match one up that will be very close.
