    Matt, do you have the sheetmetal for that project yet? I've got some extra side panels and a bifold door.

    Is indeed a conferr bumper.. I picked up a 64 with the original bill of sale and it's noted as a conferr rear bumper :D

    I can't wait to take it off... Still need some OEM tail lamps though.
