1960 F100 Rear Bumper Brackets

I have spent hours searching on the net for Styleside rear bumper brackets with no success. What is everyone using?? I see the Styleside bumpers for sale but just Stepside brackets. What is everyone using?

Thx,
Bill

I see the Styleside bumpers for sale but just Flareside brackets.
F100/250 Flareside/Styleside brackets are the same, but not F350's.
Ford = Flareside, a Stepside is a Chevrolet/GMC.

1957/60 Styleside beds were also used on some 1961/66 F100/250's, all 1961/66 F350's (9' Express only).

But, the following brackets were not used on F350's, as they used unique bumper brackets.

2) B7C-17787-C .. Right Flareside & Styleside Bumper Brackets - 12 7/16" to bumper attaching surface / Obsolete

2) B7C-17788-C .. Left Flareside & Styleside Bumper Brackets - 12 7/16" to bumper mounting surface / Obsolete

No Ford dealer or obsolete parts vendor has either side.

Applications: 1957/60 F100/250 Styleside/Flareside / 1961/65 F100/250 4WD Styleside / 1961/66 F100/250 Flareside / 1962/63 F100/250 2WD Styleside.

1966 F250 4WD Styleside / 1967/72 F100/250 with 131" wheelbase 8' Flareside bed only.

Originally, the two right brackets were bolted together, the two left brackets were bolted together, so you only bought one of each.

Later, Ford sold the right and left brackets individually, so you bought two of each.

That's what I said, see the applications.
The bumpers are different, as Flaresides use a channel type rear bumper, but the brackets are the same...except F350 Flareside/Styleside that use unique brackets.

And what might the part number be for this style rear bumper. The dip in the middle is needed so the cops can see your rear license plate.

You are correct. The Carpenter web page shows they have repop chrome rear bumpers like the picture. They list the part number as B7C-17906-A. They also indicate that the bumper fits trucks from 1957 through 1963.

B9C-17906-C .. Styleside Painted Contoured Rear Bumper / Obsolete

1959/60 F100/350 / 1961/63 F100/250 Uni / 1961/63 F100/250 4WD & F350 / 1962/63 F100/250 2WD

1961/63 applications are for Stylesides that used the 1957/60 bed. As noted, F350's used different bumper brackets.

I am assuming the "C" on the end of the part number designates a painted bumper? What would the chrome bumper be? "A" or "G"?

I guess I can forget about finding an NOS painted version of this bumper. The search continues! Thanks, Bill!

Neither.

No Ford dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any NOS
B7C-17906-D .. Chrome Contoured Styleside Rear Bumper = 1957/60 F100/350 & the 1961/63 applications I listed for the painted version.

Be very careful when buying a bumper off ebay, craigslist and etc., because there are TWO different F100 Panel Truck only bumpers, one for 1957/58, the other for 1959/60.

Most ebay/craigslist sellers haven't a single clue what the parts they are selling actually fit, even if they're NOS with part numbers!

Rear bumper brackets for style side

hi Wild78,

i read the the thread and am still confused as to what brackets you used (with modifications). Can you let me know? I have the same bumper as you.

The brackets I ordered say 48-72 stepside.

will those work if what you said above is true that they are the same?

thanks!

My understanding is there are only one set of factory brackets made for the '57-60 pickups. These brackets are used for either the contoured or flat style rear bumpers.



I used stock Ford brackets when I mounted a "contoured" bumper on the back of my F-100. The bumper did come VERY close to the bed, requiring a small amount of spacing to give the bumper some clearance. My experience has been that the factory brackets have more steel in them when compared to reproductions.
