What bumper guards did you put on the front, since there are no factory ones like that for your car?

Stock NOS rear guards, modified to fit with the front angled bumper (lots of grinding with a template )

I was wondering...

I looked at my rear guards and had considered doing that on my 65.

By the way, I like the way they look on the front.

It was a lot of work...and frustrating at time
installing a stock grill guard would have been a lot easier but because of the special center section of the Acadian grill, i was not able to go with that option.

Bought the car in 1991 as a complete rust free stocker that never saw salt nor snow (except for the pic in the previous post ! ), straight six, air cooled glide, 4 lugs 14" wheel, wearing it's original cordovan brown paint, stock unmolested interior.

drove the car as is ,

second year of ownership led me to buy a ****load of parts for the next 16 years and it is not over yet !

added disc brakes, weld wheel to finally get bitten by the Fast street car shootout bug. Built the car to run in the 10sec range in street trim with pump gas. It costed me a lot of Canadian dollars in the nineties to buy those parts !!! (exchange rate was not to our advantage to say the least...)

Once i was satisfied with the car running in the 10 sec zone, i got bored...
decided to completely disassemble the car to do a complete restoration and remodel the car to a more street friendly stance to attend car shows in the U.S. under it's own power.

No trailer queen here.
