Do AMK hood bumpers have lettering?
« on: January 26, 2020, 02:09:13 AM »
 Has anyone purchased the GM # 3792828 hood bumpers from AMK (AMK #B-10231)  and if so, do they have lettering on the top?
I see in the catalog picture what appears to be small lettering but I can't make out what they are.


Thanks!
Mike

Mike,

I donít recall where I got my replacements from but Iíll have a look (currently out of town but will be home tomorrow). My car is in body shop jail but I plan on going to the shop next week. Iíll have a look for you at the actual part.

Iíll also dig out my originals to see if they have any lettering.

Stay tuned!

I have not noticed on any survivors or nos pieces I have had showing any lettering on hood bumpers.

My survivor 67 LOS has R.R.C. on the bumpers and I found several that I took off 67 parts cars many decades ago and they too have R.R.C. They are in rough shape though which is why I am thinking of replacing them.
The ones on eBay are A.B.C. which I think were used on Vettes.

And could be Mike, I just never noted that and sure gm had more than one vendor making. Imagine the numbers plants were using per day.

Mike,

Sorry for the delayed reply.

I checked my originals and there's no sign of any lettering.

I purchased the replacement bumpers a few years ago from Classic Industries (https://www.classicindustries.com/product/3792828.html). When I go to check up on my car in the shop next week I'll have a look to see if they have any lettering on them.

The picture in the AMK catalog shows something in that area but the angle is difficult to decide.

Thanks!

Here is a pic.
Ones I had and used on our restoration were purchased in the 70ís and look like yours exactly except for the lack of lettering. As stated sure they had more than one supplier. Good pic!

No lettering on the green 68 of mine.

  I was able to find NOS 3792828 hood bumpers and bought two sets with R.R.C. molded on the face. Cost was $8 each.
Attached is a photo of the NOS bumpers that are the style, including the 3 dimples, on the 67 LOS, though in much better condition. I have dealt with this firm before for hard to find obsolete NOS parts: https://www.oldsobsolete.com/
  I agree there were several vendors and with different markings, or no markings, but I wanted to keep the LOS car as correct as possible when (or if) I decide to restore it.
 Thanks for the replies!
