These aren’t the best pictures but I found them a minute ago and had to share. The front bumper was actually a big air tank and the rear was where someone welded a truck bumper to the rear frame crossmember. All I remember is it took a dozen cut off wheels to remove it.

This didn't come on one of 40s. I actually went out of my way to buy it. Not often one of these Australian monsters shows up on CL here in the US. It was an impulse buy.

Back in 1994 a month before I bought the 40 in the picture bought a 71 painted orange. That one had the ugliest homemade bumpers front and rear. So ugly removed them as soon as I got it home. Back then only had a camera with film. Unlike today didn't take pictures just.to take them.

Great thread. Wish I had pics of the Texas hunting bench bumper that was on my 62. An iron couch...
