    Are you near Portland, Oregon? I can point you in the right direction if you are.

    I'm also looking for a rear wagon bumper and front bumper strip!

    This place had a caprice wagon when I was there a couple weeks back. I am not positive of year but it was with the late 70's early 80's B-Body's so it might be worth the call or email.

    All American Classics
    15209 NE Fourth Plain Blvd, Vancouver, WA 98682

    There's part of a NOS front bumper strip on EBAY for $89.95. It looks like it was cut off to use the outside portion from the bumper impact strip so probably not much help, but if you randomly only need 3/4 of a strip it will do the trick.

    Here's one... I think the rear wagon bumpers are the same as 4 doors and coupes, but not positive...

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/1977-GM-Chevrolet-Chevy-Caprice-Impala-Rear-Chrome-Bumper-Skin-/271982804990?hash=item3f53703ffe:g:OdoAAOSwLqFV8hZr&vxp=mtr

    I was going to buy this one, but I need a perfect rechromed or NOS one.  This one doesn't quite fit the bill for me, but it is very nice.

    By the way, Welcome to the Forum!

    thanks solo79, but the wagons have the license plate in the bumper, the sedans do not.
