Today we used 64 Impala (part# OER 3786368) speedo-cable grommet for our speedo cable. I've purchased several speedo cable grommets from several vendors only to find out the grommets are several mm larger than hole, not one fits, it's a 45mm+/- hole not a 52mm+/- hole. It was the only grommet not replaced since we bought it. I even bought solid body grommets to cut/drill but misplaced those. Btw it's a 6/70 build date but has qualities of a post 7/70
Mine is like that also. It's a 6/70 with power brakes.
When I tried to buy brake parts years ago, SOR swore my tub had been changed, then a coworker bought one with very low miles and showed it to me. His was also 6/70 with 7/70 brakes.

Our US spec also has a speed generator in line with the speedo cable which means I needed a 10" and 66" speedo cable. The hazard switch is a 7/70+ (plug is different in back from the red knob version). Our fender turn signal light plugs are 7/70+ with 2 bullet plugs, ground plug is not an open spade. So if anyone needs a set of NOS pre-6/70 signal set, I've got what you need :)

@Krenie What booster adapter did you use to keep from cutting the rib?
It was on the rig from at least three owners ago - I just cleaned off the surface rust and painted it. It looks like it is one that JT Outfitters used to sell in the pick below. Unlike the picture below, the three hole side was milled a bit above the two upper bolts to fit the stamped metal on the firewall.

Looks like they may have an updated design now?:

I picked up some powder coated parts today. They may not be an exact match to the new OEM bumper in the photo but since they are all the same I am happy

Catching up on this thread and saw this. I’m curious what you did to reinforce the factory bumper to suit a winch. Or is that custom fab’d? It looks amazing.

My OEM bumper was modified to fit an 8274 but I’ve doubted whether it’d handle a full stress pull.
