I just purchased a front bumper for my 1962 Ford
Galaxie 500. The company sent a 1964 Front
bumper. They said it would work, is this true?
Thanks!

The company should know. If it does not fit, return it.

The body shells were the same in those years, so the bumper mounts are probably the same; you'd have to compare them. But even if the bumper fits, the body lines are different, so it will look really funny.

Ed. Are these different? I compared photos of each year and to my eyes the front bumpers look the same.

Hey guys, appreciate the feedback! I just talked to company, they messed up and will be bringing me the proper 62 front bumper. The brackets didn't match at all on the one they originally sent. Thank you guys very much! Any advice on what to do if my fuel gauge always shows full and never goes down? Thanks again! Tony

I didn't remember these two bumpers looking this close, but there are differences; especially in the top line and location of mounting hardware (you can see how they don't line up); if it fits, especially at the rise at the headlights, it won't look bad, as I had thought. Again, there'll be mounting adjustments necessary. I'm less experienced with Fords than Chevys & Pontiacs.
