new to forum but older owner with a 454 74 monte S

Anybody have a source for bumper fillers for the rear? Is it only the white ones that crumble?
I have had my monte for over 20 years and never drove it as a everyday car.
Its number matching and has the 454, with a/c, gauges, and power bench seat.

Thanks and Happy New Year to all.

Welcome, I've had my '74 (chevelle) for 20 years, and like you its never been my daily driver.  I can tell you I kick myself for not buying certain parts 20 years ago.  When I took my car apart for paint (2000) I found a part # on the rear bumper fillers and figured WTH, I'll call a dealer, they told me they were discontinued in 1994...the same year I got the car. Head Bang.  I did manage to get NOS window felts and ballast resistor over the counter. (When they were available, and not marked up). You could try replicaplastics for your fillers also  jocolor

Welcome to the fun !! Very Happy  Hope you find what you need. I've had my '74 Malibu since 1990, so....almost 24 years....wow !
It was Georgia car, and has never seen a winter here in the rust belt !

Nice that your Monte is a numbers match car.

Welcome,Ive got a 73 Monte with a 454. Try the ones from replica plastics but they are going to need some modification to work I dont think they fit too well out of the box ,from what Ive heard.
