    I received it today and it’s very nice. Purchased through Jegs for $169.00 and free shipping. The angle isn’t as good as OEM, you need to pull it in with the fasteners. However, the installed fit and finish are wonderful. A great buy!

    That does look nice. I have a question I have wondered about for some time related to the rear 'BUICK' plate on the '70 bumpers. I have seen a few bumpers with no emblem at all and no holes for emblems. Was this 'BUICK' emblem part of a certain trim level and above (i.e., not included on a base model Skylark)?

    You are correct. The plate came in all but the most base trim version.

    Drop shipped out of CA, so I assume OPGI?

    Looks like a nice piece.

    Ahh, this explains why the bumper on my Custom convertible doesn't have any holes nor an emblem. It isn't original to the car...

    I like plain stuff,with no holes or extra do-dads. I’ll have to get up in my loft,and check my spare bumper that I removed from a 70 post coupe. That car was pretty basic.
