Call Alfa Part Exchange 209 365 1383 - West coast but they ship. I have a lot of used OME parts!

I was trying to address the well meaning post from 6alfas where he mentioned the 1972 and later stainless bumpers that have "bumps". My old '71 Spider, purchased new, had the same style bumpers shown in the Classic Alfa link - without any protruding bumps. $366 for the classic Alfa bumper half is a little steep, albeit a new part. Maybe look around for some used stainless bumpers that become available periodically.
Or, maybe someone's insurance is paying for a new bumper?. If so, buy the Classic Alfa part
Thanks for the input conedriver. So, do you mean that these from classic alfa are not the ones I want?[/QUOTE]

The "over rider" was a protruding rubber pad on each side but the U.S. '71 spider did not have this. The OP is looking for a '71 bumper.

The only other difference I can think of is the color of the lens in the light assembly. The CA part is a complete bumper-light assembly. If it comes with a white lens, then I guess that makes it European (US would be white-amber).
