Hi, trying to identify if a 68 US GP Bumper, Part code 9790056, will fit on a 68 Parisienne.
Tried searching for a Canadian GM parts list to cross reference what the part number is for a Parisienne bumper but no luck, can anyone assist.
Are you talking about the front or rear bumper ?
I was told the rear bumper bracket holes are different between the US and non-US cars.
Regards, Scott (LandShark ...)

Here's how I read the Cdn parts book.All 1968 Grande Parisiennes ( 766 ) regardless of body style use Bar Front Bumper Impact part number 9790056.It should look like this.

Thank you for looking this up for me much appreciated
When I did my facelift, I used my chrome surround and backing metal from my Parisienne. I purchased the headlight actuators, all the grill pieces, vacuum canister and headlight switch. Keep thinking that GM was very modular and did't like to reinvent too many wheels so they did try to reuse as much as possible. When you get the grills, make sure you get the outside little pieces, those are real tough to get. I do have more pictures if needed.

Thank you very much!
I think that's it then, will go with this bumper (complete unit and in pretty good condition, especially the hardware)
I got the guy to measure the distance between the bumper irons where they bolt onto the chassis, they are exact as mine plus he provided some other measurements for mounting points which line up perfectly.
Wish me luck guys, that it arrives in OZ without any problems, I am spending quite a few $$$ to get this.
Thanks again to all for your help and advice!
Thank you much appreciated that would be very helpful can start to work it all out while waiting for it to arrive

What I'm reading into this is that the frames for Parisienne and Catalina are the same width in 68 and 69. Or at least the locations of the bumper brackets are the same? I wonder if the same is true for 1967 models. Looking at pictures I have always assumed that a Catalina is a slightly wider car overall than a Parisienne re the 67 model year. But if bumpers fit both, then the width would be the same. I know a Catalina has a longer wheelbase and a slightly wider track (at least in the front) in 1967 than a Parisienne. Maybe the whole front clip for a Catalina fits a Parisienne these years and vice versa.
Here is the bumper and the measurements, may help
Off subject, but where did you find that tape measure (brand?) and how much to ship 1 to Canada!! Feet/inches and fractions with no metric,would luv to have one! Sorry for the derail....normally Doug and Carls specialty.
