I believe the long chrome bumper horns were on USA 71-73 2002's (Model 71).

My USA '69 2002 has the short versions.

'73 on the tii, '69 on the ground

Later European Models still used the chrome bumpers.

Aren't they basically identical, except for the extra cut-out for the rubber trim on the later models?

Front bumpers:

US cars: tall guards (like the rears pictured) used on 68-72 cars. They were "non-optional options"--i.e. Max Hoffman ordered all his cars with all four bumper guards--an $8 option! For 1973 only the front bumper guards were the long, pointy style. 74-76 US cars (squarelights) had the heavy aluminum 5 mph bumpers--no bumper guards

Euro cars--they were options; tall on Euro cars through 73, then the pointy ones from 74 to end of production. Euro squarelight cars had chrome bumpers vs the aluminum US only style.

Rear bumpers:

US cars: tall guards (like those pictured) were used through the end of roundie production in 1973. In 1973 only the rear bumpers were spaced a couple of inches away from the body with reinforced brackets. Again, "non-optional options" fitted to all US spec cars. Squarelights all had aluminum 5 mph bumpers with no guards.

Euro cars: they were options, and were the same tall guards as used on US roundies--fitted to the end of production on chrome bumpers, round and squarelight cars.

cheers
