It doesn't really need any work to be a daily driver. It'* just cosmetic.

Yes, indeedy. Parting this out would be a shame. It'* probably completely worthwhile to go on a junkyard run and pick up the front bumper.

That'* a darn nice looking car. In searching cart-parts.com for the entire front bumper assembly there are many listed for 125. to 200 bucs. That was mostly in the twin cites area. The cover alone isn't listed but I'm sure someone would sell you one for half or less of the whole assembly.

Sorry!

Getting more into this, would you consider getting any H-body bumper and painting it to match? I'd like to see a cut-to-fit Olds 88 front bumper on there!
