Any early bumper will work. Cost? depends on condition really of the chrome and the rubber top. I located a set for about $300 total two years ago. Ususally the fogs and grills are separate....

What about having a painted set chromed? Does anybody do this work anymore? The last time I looked for chrome bumpers AA wanted $900 each.

I have taken painted bumpers in to be chromed and they strip them of the paint and find bondo in the bumpers to make them smooth appearing. I recommend taking chrome bumpers in for chroming. I have paid any where from $350 per bumper to $500
for a triple plate concours chrome plating.
