The History of Classic Car Bumpers

Over the past several decades, an evolution of car bumpers has become increasingly obvious from both the materials used to construct a bumper and the sole purpose of a bumper. Older bumpers were originally made of hard steel in order to protect the car, but it made cars very destructive when struck and extremely heavy.

Improvement to Bumpers Over Time

As newer generations of cars were released, their bumpers had also undergone an improvement with better, more efficient, materials being used to construct the bumpers. These new bumpers, like the ones used in cars today, may not be as solid as the hard steel they were once made of, but they are lighter and more aerodynamic which increases the car’s efficiency.

Nonetheless, these lighter materials are vulnerable to rock and debris damage from everyday driving. Thankfully, we offer the best quality chrome plated bumpers, radiator shells, and grills.
