Has anyone used Model A rear bumpers on an f1?

I been thinking about using a model A rear bumper on my 50' f1 to accommodate my reese hitch. The split rear bumper seems to be a viable option. Have any of you done it or ever seen one like it? Obviously I am not concerned with originality. Thanks for any input.

The early flat F-1 bumper that I repaired had an old style flat steel trailer hitch inserted thru the bumper.
Could you fit the bumper around the hitch? Or how about a wider bumper that you could build a door into to hide the hitch?

This is what I did to incorporate a stock shaped bumper with a hitch. I fabricated my own bumper irons and raised and tucked the bumper. Picture is before I mounted fenders.

Years ago I saw a picture of an F100 with Model A bumpers in Truckin magazine. Looked pretty cool.

A few pix before the bed was installed. The hitch was a generic one for motor homes. I had to fab the 1" thick spacer that is between the bottom flange of the frame and the mounting surface of the hitch . Critical for me was to allow exhaust routing, not blind the tail lights mounted in the rolled cross metal under the bed and I wanted the receiver just under the bumper and in a bit from the face of the bumper, I fabricated and polished the bumper iron out of some 304ss bar stock that I had. I bought the 3rd light which plugs into a trailer harness when the not trailering. It has tail light and stop light in that 3rd light. They are LED's and good and bright.
