Default Are they Chrome Plated Steel Bumpers or what?

BIN dropped to $110K.

What was the last year of the chrome bumpers? Every time I look at this coach - that flat black front bumper just seems a little odd for such a upgraded coach. Maybe in person it doesn't look as dull.

I think there is another $15K to buy it. I like those numbers if I own one with numerous upgrades, but not of I am buying.

Randy, my '90 definitely has chrome-plated steel bumpers - very thick and heavy.

The "new look" (no inset at top) front cap was the first to not have a steel bumper. The '90 has black plastic covers on the ends of the bumpers, not sure what year those happened.

If you look closely at the e-bay '88 you can see it also has the plastic ends and the steel bumper has been painted black.
