Bumper GuardsPosted by: Dan McCormack on 01/26/04 with effusive thanks to Duane, John Kane, Andy, Ragnar, Curt, Ken, Thomas, John B, and John Borris.
The Coronet and Charger used the same bumper guards.
Several months ago I ordered a full set from Rock Auto and was
sent four identical cushions.
Two would not fit the front guards at all.
The mounting bolts for the fronts were way off.
I then ordered two fronts from Jim's, they came in the same,
not even close.
The ones they were calling out for the fronts were actually rears with
a different part number.
I installed the rear cushions, BAD FIT!
I contacted Mark Dodge at Metro Molded Parts in Minnesota, (
Mark and I started to work on the problem about two months ago.
I sent my old front and rear cushions in for evaluation and to be used
as a pattern.
I was sent two proto-types for the rear, they are more pliable and are
a perfect fit.
I will have the fronts ASAP as they come out of the mold.
Mark may need a head count ( NO COMMITMENT!!! ) before going
into full production.
*** If you even "THINK" you will use the cushions or for the support of
future owners that want them, I would strongly advise you contact Mark
to show your support ASAP!
You may not be able to buy direct from Metro but Mark would be able to
put you onto the vendors that have the "NEW CUSHIONS"!
The price I paid for the poor fit and would not fit front and
rears from both Rock / Jim's was $49.95 per set.

Rear Bumper SealPosted by: Don Dodson on 06/08/03
The part number in the Year One catalogue for the seal is FR7 price $29.95 plus all of the other charges to get the thing such as protection plan and shipping and handling etc: Description: Nice reproduction of the rubber strip which is positioned between the rear bumper and the rear body panel on 1966-67 B-body models. This piece measures approximately 72 inches in length and includes 15 clips for installation.
BumpersThe 66 and 67 Charger and the 66 Coronet all use the same front bumper.
(The 67 Coronet bumper has parking lights)
The 66 and 67 Charger and the 67 Coronet all use the same rear bumper.
(The 66 Coronet bumper does not have back up lights)
The exception would be the 66 bumpers that have holes for the bumper guards which would not be correct for a 67.
Note: None of this applies to a Coronet station wagon rear which had it's own unique bumper, bumper guards and rubber cushions.
