Anyone got a early front van with no bumper on?

Post by 8bit-ash on Mon Apr 30, 2012 6:28 pm

Just wondering if anyone happens to have a pic of, or an actual van with no front bumper on...I need the measurement from the green line in the pic. Or if anyone can just confirm whether the rad sits lower on a newer one like mine.

I think you might owe me a hot dog you know. Look where the lowest part of the bumper is compared to the bottom of the door on a new fronted and old fronted van. New one def sits lower and the rad goes right to the bottom.

The very bottom of the rad is about an inch or so below the lower edge of the bumper on my 1995 but there is the metal bar for grinding to a stop when you have the back wheels in the air.

See what you mean, the old ones bumper is straight across the bottom while the new ones have a bit which sticks out.

And looking at your picture its just for that bigger late radiator. So it looks like I owe you a hot dog Crying or Very sad

But I guess you could swap over the metal frame and radiator to fit the old bumper and the old retro head lights hopefully.
