1968 and 1969 Front Valances

Asked by Feb 12, 2015 at 10:34 AM about the 1968 Pontiac Le Mans Convertible

Question type: General

Hi, I bought a 1968 Lemans Convertible with an unmatching bumper/valance
combination.  I think the bumper is right, but the valance seems to be 1969.  
However, I cannot find any other evidence of this type of valance - the kind with
license plate offset to the passenger side.  Does anyone know if there were multiple
valances made in 1969?  I am trying to figure out whether to replace my bumper with
a 1969 (I like the larger chrome bumper anyway), or find a 1968 valance to match my
existing bumper.  Thanks for the help.

The 68 valance was centered. The 69 was offset. Your choice since they will both fit your car. Not a big deal unless you want it to be correct for a 68. see attached picture of a 68 with the correct centered lic plate mounting.

Hi. The bumper is that of a 1968 and the lower valance is from a 69 lemans. the 1968 valance for a GTO and lemans are the same, they have wrap around signal lights so there isn't a need for side marker ligts. (69 had side marker/signal lights on the front fenders.) 68 valance panel looks much sleaker. Engoy your car... looks great
