72 rear bumper brackets

Are there any differences between Cutlass and 442 rear bumper brackets. I need ones for a 72 442

thanks Bruce

In 1968-69, the bumper brackets were different for the cutout bumper vs. the non-cutout bumper. The difference was the presence of mounting tabs for the special tail pipe hangers used with the cutout bumper. For the 1970-72 model years, Olds made the bracket the same for both bumper styles.

Note that while you say "442 brackets", I suspect you mean "cutout bumper brackets". Small block 442s did not get the cutout bumper in the 1972 model year. (And awaaaay we go on THIS topic again... )

types. The bolt up pattern is identical on all 70-72 A bodies including sedans. Should note that a special ridged washer is used to lock the bumper bracket from moving when the nut is torqued down.

Nope, should be dead and buried. Don't bring it up and it won't get discussed. Sorta like opening Pandora's box isn't it?
