Yes, Lucian, the bumper shown above — with long side elements and a rubber rub strip — was originally fitted to U.S.-spec Modell 71 cars, which includes all U.S.-spec round taillight cars manufactured from April 1971 through August 1973. This, thus, includes, late 1971 models, all 1972 models, and all 1973 models.

 

The same long side elements were also used on Euro-spec cars manufactured from September 1973 through the end of ‘02 production (square taillights). But Euro-spec cars used a center section punched out for license plate lights and generally did not use rear overriders.

 

By the way, your car’s coming along nicely. Big improvement!

 

Best regards,

 

Steve
