Did the car have an Amco bar fitted as many US imports did?

For the rear bumper, it will be the AMCO curved bars. For the front overriders, it will be the curved chrome ends that go into the bonnet aperture.

Thought I had taken a photo I should have checked so no photo. If you look on Martin Robey website it is BD1911 for one of them. You can click on and get a better view . Bryan

Do you or more to the point, the owner, really want to fit front overriders on the rear bumper?

I wouldn't.
