61 Econoline Bumpers

My 61 5 window has white painted bumpers with chrome round head bolts. Should they be chrome? Did all 5 windows come with chrome bumpers as standard or did some get painted bumpers? The truck is all original including paint and interior.

Thanks for your help!

Sorry for the double thread. The computer was screwing up somehow.

The 5-window pickups were the deluxe versions, so chrome bumpers could have been normal on them. Since you have chrome bolts, my guess is that someone replaced your chrome bumper with a painted one and kept the old bolts.

Any 1961-1964 Econoline front bumper has the same bolt pattern as yours.

You could also use a 1965-1967 bumper if you also use the 1965-1967 bumper brackets as well. The holes in the frame are the same.

Some prefer the 1965 -1967 front bumper since they are heavier steel and narrower. The 1961-1964 bumper seemed to stick out the side of the van farther than it needed to.

I think the rear bumper for the pickups is the same from 1961-1967. It is also the same as the vans from 1961-1964.
