There is a limited market for '75-76 bumpers. They were large and heavy. Only someone restoring such a car is likely to show interest. Might be worth storing in the garage and try selling them in a few more years as more folks try to restore "any" year 914.

In '75 and '76, it was primarily California that was forcing heavy smog emission on cars. Very oftern there were "california spec" and "49 state" cars available.

My '76 had a specific sticker, as a 49 state car, of "no catalyst" in the door jam. Conceivabnly, along with an air pump and charcoal canister, the car could have had a catalytic converter.

not sure if the equipment varied between the 1.8 and the 2.0's that were offered in '75.

IIRC, Cali folks prefer a '75 car because they DON'T need to keep emissions garb.. but a '76 would.
