1965 Ford Galaxie 4 door sedan 352 fe v8
I have a 1965 Galaxie bumper and its bracket to attach to the car. Can anyone tell me what hardware I need to attach the bracket to the frame?
+1I have a 66 so I'm not sure if mine is the same as your 65 but here's what I had to do to get my bumper mounted.
1st you will need the special "cam bolts" that mount on the inner frame holes. I couldn't locate any so I just used a standard bolt and sandwiched large washers inside the large hole in the frame (see photos).
Next you will need the "special" frame nuts that go inside the frame to screw the mounting bolts into (see photos). Good like finding these as well. I looked high and low for them (6 total are required). Someone here pointed me to a nut and bolt manufacture in FL that only had 4 left. Think I found the other 2 on ebay.
Anyway it was a pain tracking down all the special hardware. Good luck, and pm me if you need more info, I'll try to help.
Ok thank you very much!AsherGAK, not sure if your still looking for the front bumper / frame special nuts but here is where I got mine. Looks like the finally have a few more in stock ($10 each so not cheap).
You are buying one (1) NORS Auveco fastener. This nut is 1/2-13 and is 2-7/8" long. Replaces the Ford part number 379730-S2.www.ebay.com
