    Correct front and rear bumpers for 70 911S

    Hi
    I am a new member of this board and recently purchased a 1970 S.The car does not have the correct front and rear bumpers.Any ideas where I can find originals?

    Thanks,

    The front and rear bumpers are no longer available from Porsche, but you may be lucky to find NOS items. Otherwise there are a few good condition used ones around.

    Just agreeing with buying off e-bay
    I've bought the correct rear bumpers for my 69 car (which had an RS bumper) and am 'watching' for the right front ...

    Am i right in thinking that the 1969 912 bumpers would be the same as the 911 ?

    (amazing, but is still far cheaper for me to buy in the US and ship to Australia ... even bumpers !!)

    912 bumpers are exacly the same as 911, front and rear. The only different bumpers are 912/911 -68 SWB bumpers. The rears are longer and the fronts have a different mounting sustem, but brackets could be adapted

    Bear in mind that the 'S' had different (aluminium/rubber) decor trim on the F&R bumpers which was optional on the 'E' but not often (rarely) fitted to 'T' or 912 models.

    Although it's possible to buy it new, it would probably be cheaper to find 'S' (or 'S' option) F&R bumpers to begin with.

    I noticed that Stoddard and Mid America Motorworks (Tweeks) have front and rear bumbers in thier catalog. They seem rather expensive to be reproductions.

    I have access to both front and rear bumpers along with the correct used rear "S" trim, NOS bumper guards and NOS front rubber strip. It wont be cheap, but I can hook you up with the right stuff.
    PM me if interested.
