rear bumpers

I was at a local junk yard and I remembered he had a few on our gen trucks there. I saw these two bumpers are they correct or just home made? Is it worth it to grab them before they get crushed?

thanks
bob

I believe they are homade. However, the one laying in the bed of the truck is very similar to mine.

Rear bumpers were an option for these trucks.

After I posted I found a few other posts saying that. The one laying the bed is pretty cool dealer bumper. It's stamped EDDY something FORD MISS.

I may grab it anyway.

Are the brackets all one piece on that bumper?

rough, I think it's only the wheel, the rest is stripped. The same was I remember when that truck came in about 5yrs ago. I could have driven it back out..

EDDY whatzit FORD MISS(issippi). Back then, the MS abbreviation for Mississippi wasn't used, introduced years later by the Feds, as were the other 49 state two letter abbreviations.

At one time, some Ford Dealers stamped their names on rear bumpers as a form of advertising, but this doesn't mean the bumpers are genuine Ford, quite the contrary.

Most bumpers so stamped were step bumpers, Ford didn't offer a factory step bumper until 1967 (as an option, as were all other types of rear bumpers thru at least 1979).

B7C-17906-C .. Painted Styleside Channel Rear Bumper

1957/60 F100/350 / 1961/63 F100/250 2WD Unit ('Uni') Body / 1961/65 F100/250 4WD / 1961/66 F350 / 1962/63 F100/250 2WD (not Uni) / 1966 F250 4WD
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B7C-17906-D .. Chrome Styleside Contoured Rear Bumper = Same applications as B7C-17906-C.

B9C-17906-C .. Painted Styleside Contoured Rear Bumper = 1959/60 F100/350 Styleside / Same 1961/66 applications as B7C-17906-C

1957/60 Styleside beds installed on the above 1961/66's except 1961/63 Uni's. 1961/66 enthusiasts call this the "wrong bed" because the cab lines don't match the bed lines.

1966 F100 4WD used the same Styleside beds as 1964/66 F100/250 2WD.

For whatever reason, I have found the dealer name on the step bumper to be very popular in the Dakotas. Seems every other truck on the road there back in the 70's had one. I always thought they were cool, but I've been a lifelong fan of step bumpers. If I recall correctly, some of the Dakota bumpers were lettered in 'weld'.

Most aftermarket step bumpers have the bumper brackets welded on. Ford step bumper brackets bolt on and are "weak sisters." A slight tap on the bumper causes it to sag downwards like an old swaybacked nag.

September 1987, was driving towards Mount Rushmore. When I reached the Needles, I spotted something I had never seen before, was totally unaware of: 1965 F250 Crew Cab Styleside parked alongside the road.

I stopped, got out, took a few pictures, still have them. March 1965, bought a new 1965 F100 8' Styleside, but was not aware of any Crew Cab version until 22 years later.

WOW!! You have quite a collection. Next time you're in Twisp, check out the 1956 Ford COE wrecker parked next to a repair shop. I shoulda stopped, taken a few pics.

There's a "one lung" engine museum in Vista CA

Bill was that 65 F250 crew a 4wd or 2wd. Im asuming the styleside box you are refering to was the wrong box. With a crew cab was it a long or short box? Just wondering.

I don't recall whether it was 2WD or 4WD, whether it had the "wrong bed" or not, how long the bed was. All I recall is...it was Wimbledon White. I have the 35mm pics in an album, now all I have to do is find it.

Had just bought a new 35mm camera with every gadget known to man and beast (still have it). Took 100's of pics during the 5 days I was in SD and WY. Whizzed over to WY to visit Devils Tower.

Here's the step bumper I built last winter for my '59. While not 'factory', it has period details I have seen over the years in my travels. This one won't sag down with a tap. The brackets are definately WELDED and it, along with the receiver hitch assembly are bolted to the frame with 1/2" grade 8 bolts. I realize in a good, ok, huge bump, it could crumple a fender, but the main section is a 3/8" section 3x6 'H' beam. The step loop is an old crowbar. I am debating installing some angled supports from the outside edge of the bumper to the top of the rear stake pocket. That's really common on the old bumpers for support when running with the tailgate down. And Bill, I was in Twisp last week. Never saw a cabover, but did see a 50's dodge wrecket and a '38 ford fire engine. The '38 had been burned up badly in a barn fire, but the owner wouldn't consider selling me the perfect stainless steel script 'hub covers' of the big full floating rear axle. Said he was gonna 'restore' it.

Here's the deal, I think I can get the whole thing for just over scrap prices. I'm going to look it over again Friday. There's a 3/4 ton there also, condition unknown.. The frame is usable on the 1/2 but the rest is gooey. It's marginally worse than the cab I have. But, I won't have to re-fix the repairs on the one I have. I also wanted it for the rear, 5 lug front conversion. the PO of my truck converted it to Rack and Pinion but I'm to crazy about it, so I'm looking for all the steering components, and the seat.. So I'm thinking it may be worth the investment.

Thoughts?? I tried to just get a good cab, but I had a few not get back to me after the original offer, and shipping issues.. So it just doesn't look well.
