checking interest for factory brush guards

I have 2 different styles of factory 67-72 brush guards, I have seen a few posts on here of people wanting to get one. I am considering building some, patterned from the originals and I am wondering if there is anyone interested.
they will be made EXACTLY as originals. since I am building them I can alter them to someones specs, I just had surgery so this will NOT be soon, I am just checking to see if there is interest. please reply in thread. DO NOT PM me at this time thanks Coop

Re: checking interest for factory brush guards

Do you have any pics of your brush guards? I've only seen one guard for the 67 to 72s that carried a GM part number.

Re: checking interest for factory brush guards

Ill get a pic of it as soon as I can, just laying around taking it easy for awhile after surgery, so it might be awhile. I'm just checking to see if anyone might be interested, if no one is interested I'll go on about my business LOL Coop

Re: checking interest for factory brush guards

Well to be honest I haven't got that figured out yet. I will have to see how much it takes to build one, keep in mind I'm not really doing this to make money, it will give me something to do and help out some guys that want one and can't find originals, there few and far between. just guessing (and this is a guess so don't quote me on it I would say somewhere between $150 and $200 + shipping) and thats for the one like pictured above without any modifications. I am really just checking to see if there is enough interest to justify doing it. I don't want to get all set up to build them and then not be able to sell them. I know there are the purist's that won't be interested because they wont have the part number on them, but for the one's that just want a factory style or similar brush guard here is a chance to have a "repop" that will look just like the original or if they want to modify it in some way like "push guards" or a "winch mount" I can do just about anything someone would want. Coop
Oh and just in case your thinking "here is another clown with a torch and a welder" I have been fabricating and welding in the oilfield most of my life, and I used to be a state certified (its expired now tho) high pressure natural gas pipe line welder, so I think I am qualified to build brush guards

Re: checking interest for factory brush guards

I would be interested, depending what the prototype looks like and cost....for now get well, and contact me when the guard happens. I was going to build one myself, but I could be working on something else on the truck, while your at the brush guards

Re: checking interest for factory brush guards

I think this is a good idea. I may or may not be interested,but this is too early to have to decide.I'll just say I am sure you'd have some takers when the time comes. I'm thinking there was a Chevy and a GMC version. Look at that bottom center one in the picture SS Tim showed

I think the only mod. I might need would be to mount some Unity driving lights on the center section of the guard, might just need a wider piece of stock in that area, but we will see...

Thanks for the help

Re: checking interest for factory brush guards

If I could keep the bumper guards on AND bolt on the brush guard I'd be interested but don't see how that could work.

Tim is right, there was a GMC and a Chevy version..it was just the spacing of the top bar by the headlights. The very first pic in this thread of the guard on a 67 chevy plus the pic Tim pointed out are the GMC versions.

Here are a couple scans from my 1970 GMC accessory catalog.



Heres a scan from a 1970 Chevy Silver Book showing one made by Luverne that was a dealer install
