    I’m looking for a couple parts to finish work on my 78 pickup.

    72-78 front bumper in chrome
    75-78 front grille with chrome rings(bezels)
    72-78 bench seat
    72-78 door cards

    if you have any parts and are willing to ship or in the Virginia area please drop a comment or a message. Thank you!

    Good luck with your search. Just FYI, 72-74 bumpers are different than 75-78. The frame on the later models is wider, therefore the mounting brackets are different.

    Learned this the hard way! lol

    Thanks for the heads up I didn't know they were different. I can find all the parts to make these trucks run forever but it's a little harder to make them pretty haha

    If you have the bumper still you could have it straighten and rechromed. Probably a couple hundred or so. I'm looking at doing that with mine. Or there is the new 600 dollar one on ebay that you have to take a gamble on. I'm guessing it's for the later models.

    Thinking I might go that route or the the ALSA easy chrome paint. Do you have a link to the bumper on eBay?
