Lower Front and Rear Bumpers

I know that sometime before the end of 1968 Mustang production, Ford decided to remove the small bumpers that were found below the regular bumper. I assume this was a cost cutting measure. The front bumpers were chrome and the rears were painted body color. Does anyone know when these small bumpers ceased to be installed on a 1968 Mustang???
A date....or VIN would be great. Thanks,

Russ

I think the rears were deleted before the fronts. not sure of the exact date. Try posting this on the concourse section on VMF, Jeff Spegle will know.

If you're looking for a set of rear bumper guards, I have them. Email me if you're interested.
