Did you know Split Beetle bumper brackets differ from later style brackets by 4 specific means? They have smaller bolt holes, different bend radiuses, are 2-layer style and of course don't have the same length as the later style.

The most important and apparent detail when it comes to Split bumper brackets is for them to have the correct bend radius as it will be exposed to the outside and be very noticeable by everyone. Compare our radiuses to other vendors before deciding your purchase. They will tell you they are correct but they are not. That is because you need to make an actual die to stamp the layers of the bracket and not only use an industrial bending machine to make them. But a stamping die costs a lot of money so they choose the short path. They will probably work with some adjustments but won't be period correct.

In this case there is an extra feature that makes this one very special and that is the extra support for the external horn. This specific front left bumper bracket was only used in the Standard Split Beetle up to May 1949 with the "Banana" style bumper brackets.

All of our bumper brackets are made of spring steel and quality powder coated. Ready to install in your Beetle.
