Bumpers for 1961 ford truck styleside

Have a question about rear bumper on 1961 ford truck styleside (Unibody), the origanal bumper has the dip for the license plate which I am not will crazy about. I have seen pictures on the web were guys have used looked like a rear 1964 bumper that had the indention for the license plate which I like better.

Hey there you are probably talking about what I think is called the sport bumper from 64 up. Here is a pic of it. As to how you get it mounted to your truck Im not sure. I did not look up under that uni to see how he accomplished that.



It does look good back there. Just like that is the one it came with.

Sport is the idiotic name some of repro parts sellers are calling this bumper. It is not Ford terminology.

C4TZ-17906-B .. Chrome Contoured Styleside Rear Bumper / Reproduced

Applications: 1964/66 F100/250 2WD / 1966 F100 4WD / 1967/72 F100/350 / 1973/77 F250 4WD (High Boys) / 1973/79 F350's on the 140" wheelbase.

The bumper is the same 1964/79, but the brackets are not the same after 1972.

C4TZ-17787-A Right & C4TZ-17788-A Left .. Inner Bumper Brackets / Reproduced

C4TZ-17795-A Right & C4TZ-17796-A Left .. Outer Bumper Brackets / Reproduced

Styleside applications: 1964/66 F100/250 2WD / 1966 F100 4WD / 1967/72 F100/350.

There was also this: C4TZ-17906-A .. Painted Contoured Styleside Rear Bumper, same apps as C4TZ-17906-B.

Bumper

Bill the truck I have is a (1961 unibody or styleside) with the original rear brackets how much trouble would it be to install a bumper like what is in the picture instead of the one that came with the 61 that drops down for the license plate. The bumper in the picture has bolts in the top where the 61 has bolts in the bumper face but I like the one in the picture for my 61 if it is not going to be hard to confert any help would be appreciated thanks.

I'm aware you have a Uni, also noticed your ad in the Parts Wanted section for one a these later bumpers.

But, I have no idea what's involved. You'll have to find someone w/a Uni that has made this swap. There is no parts catalog ref, since this bumper was introduced in 1964 and Uni's were cancelled in 1963.

You need to purchase the 64 to 72 bumper brackets and bumper. Each is reproduced by the aftermarket. The truck pictured has a reproduction bumper.

To mount it you will need to cut two slots in the rear roll pan to allow the brackets to mount to the outboard face of rear frame section. The 61 to 63 uni 66 frame is the same as the model 81 and is the same width. The brackets may bolt to existing holes in the frame, Maybe Maybe not?. Final Adjust accordingly to your lack of taste this bumper provides to the classic lines of the uni.

You will also need to rewire lighting for the license plate.

A fairly easy swap if you do not mind cutting up the rear factory roll pan.

I stand corrected Contoured is what I will hence forth refer to this bumper as. (note for Garbz) Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
