    Default Only BB cars had painted bumpers?

    My research seems to show only the BB colored cars had painted bumpers.My Bittersweet '69 had painted bumpers,and in in the research/restoration phase,i assume this was not correct for this car? Any input appreciated.Thanks,Mark.

    Correct, only the 1969 Big Bad Colors had factory painted bumpers. Your Bittersweet Orange AMX originally came with chrome bumpers. It was quite a shocker to see painted bumpers on a car back then. In '70 and later (to 19??) the BB colors were made available on all models but they had chrome bumpers.

    Re-chroming bumpers is much more expensive today than painting them so that's what sometimes leads to the decision to paint the bumpers.

    Occasionally you'll come across painted fiberglass bumpers too.
