Suggest you say which model that you're looking for?
22XX, 23XX, etc. The decoder is on this site.
There are different bumpers; deluxe, custom, etc.
ie, does it have to look like the picture?

Also: Group 2, in the parts list, lists all the bumpers. I only see one and two piece. Bumperettes are saparate/adder.
It's on this site in literature too.

ps: I'm going to have to rethink this. The one with the center cut out may not be factory?? Of all the 48-50s I've looked at don't recall seeing that. But I like the look over the factory. Would be easy to do and certainly light weight.
I was planning on thinning and contour fitting but this adds a refined look to mimic the above parallel bars.

The first photo in the thread shows the "open mouth" 22nd series design, in the second version where the end connectors are chrome instead of painted. The center section between the bumper guards is open.

I think it's interesting how the design evolved to a heavier and heavier look. I think the original two horizontal , body color connector look is the cleanest and ties in best with the side moldings.
