WTB US Valence or Euro Bumpers + Valence

Post by taylortdhouse » Mon Oct 09, 2017 6:38 pm

Recently had towing destroy my front valence/air dam and I need to replace it. I would love to go euro spec now that it's a possibility, but finding them is damn near impossible it seems like, even when searching the German Ebay. I'm located in Middle Tennessee but depending on the cost of shipping from Europe I would be open for euro bumpers.

First off, sorry to hear about the bad towing episode and ... congratulations for being able to now justify a euro facelift!
I do have, left over from a recent restoration of an 84 635 euro, a complete front set up. That is the bumper w good chrome and rubber, mounting brackets, air dam valence, driving lights w mounting brackets and new lenses. This set up is from an earlier 6 (1980ish) but I believe will fit your 87.
It has been federalized so has heavy steel bits welded inside the bumper section. I always recommend removing that extra steel but it's not essential.
I also have a pair of rust free euro front fenders, without lighting cut outs and a pair of euro front turn signal assemblies. I'm in Boston, Ma so not exactly local but definitely closer than Germany.

I have a front valence but it would need a bit of repair. PM me if you are interested with your email and I can send pictures.

Do you have the “L” brackets for the front? Part number 51111909273 and 51111909274?

My Euro bumper is complete with brackets. To install on a US car, the shock supports need to be cut and holes drilled in the rails to bolt on.
