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

conedriver 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 CA ad for the bumper lists it as fitting 1970 - 1982 spiders. That would be true for European cars, since they didn't have to fit 5 mph bumpers in 1975. So they are "European" in that they won't work on post '74 US cars. For you with a '71, this is irrelevant.

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).

Full amber would be for US cars I believe the white/amber was for Germany and most of Europe/rest of world was full white.. but I don’t think anyone is making the correct full amber for US cars.
