Is this really NOS? New old stock? Says it was installed and removed, sanded and painted.... lol that doesn’t really sound new to me... also look at the cutout for the front bumper brackets... seems like there’s a high/low spot.... this just seems like a nice example used part to me

you sound like the comments on bring a trailer, if you need the part pm me, if you  have put a bent bumper into a nose panel it looks just like this,  if you are not looking for a mint nose  this is is it, it was saved  for a rare restoration, the used red one brought 2k  and this one is nicer   Bruce M-tuner

I think the point he is  making, as I have in the past, is that there used to be only one definition of 'new'.  Which to me, and assorted others, means "NEW". As in never used, never painted, nothing wrong with it....

This isn't BAT terminology, its the real world...

Since Daron and Ray have declared this Fight Night — although they might challenge that point — I’d say, yes....”NOS” implies new and never used, but NOS does not speak to condition: that’s a separate judgement. A rusted out, sitting-on-the-shelf or sitting-out-back part could be NOS, but in poor condition. NOS parts are generally in better condition, but not many NOS parts remain in true mint condition.

 

When I restored my ‘61 F-350, I was shocked to discover there were actually lots of NOS parts out there, most more than 50 years old — Ford Motor Corp, unlike BMW, wasn’t cranking out batches of parts 40 years after the vehicle’s production ceased! And lots of these parts needed “restoration” — e.g., re-painting, re-plating, powdercoating, etc. Forty years on a back shelf, in a box, in a damp corner, doesn’t do a part much good....😯

 

There, have I fulfilled the requirements of Fight Night? 😉

 

Best regards,

 

Steve

early nose fits 1966 to 1973 round tail light  1600 2002 tii  e10  not later plastic grill 1974- 1976 cars , if you put it into a later car you need to change the tail panel and remove about 200 lbs of reinforcement to get to 2180 lbs of early car weight.
