#1 Front & Rear Chrome Tube Bumpers

Post by Motorman » Wed Jan 02, 2019 1:29 am

IMO these add on bumpers do not add anything to the Series 2 cars. They’re a distraction to the beautiful lines of the EType.
It’s my understanding that these were an option on the Series.

On the 1968 FHC that I’m considering purchasing, I noticed that they are fastened with two screws on both sides. Easily removed I guess.

What do you think of these accessories ?

Thanks

They‘re called „amco bars“. Its your decision, most I guess remove them. Either fit new overriders or put a chromed flat - head bolt into the holes.

Thanks Carsten. Very new here. What are overrides ?
The chrome bolt/screw is a excellent idea.

Overriders are the vertical elements to the bumper that these bars attach to.
