Front Bumper Alignment

I have 67 Cutlass and the front bumper appears to be pushed up in the middle, both sides fit in the recessed fenders perfectly. Is there a trick to getting the bumper aligned evenly? I don't think the bumper is bent but just in case is there a shop that checks bumpers for correctness? The chrome is in good shape and I don't want buy another bumper if possible. Thanks

Post some pictures of the bumper at various angles so we can see what your looking at.

If the bumper was straighten and rechromed it might have a fitment problem

Also keep in mind up to the late 70's if a car was towed for any reason it was a sling tow truck and it was common to push up a bumper like you describe. I have had a few I have had to pull down in the middle to make them right. I usually put them on my car trailer and use the winch on the front of it to do that.
