I know the front bumpers on the 1965 nova are different from the 1962 thru 1964 models but are the rear bumpers the same design? I'm looking for some rear bumper guards and don't know if used ones will interchange between the year models. Thanks in advance. :)

I have 2 rear bumber guards that will not fit a repop bumper, just so you know.
It's strange that the guards won't fit the repro bumper. Is the repro bumper different in some way.

My bumpers are in fairly good shape and I'm considering having them re-chromed if I can find a Georgia re-plating company that won't charge a king's ransom for doing them. I wanted to be on the look out for anything that might be better from an older model if they were interchangeable and save some $$$.

Some of the 1st and 2nd gen repop bumper contours do not match the originals. Some are OK, some are not.
