1973-74 Corvette TruFlex Front Bumper. Until now, there were only two choices of replacement bumpers for your Corvette. Original factory replacement urethane bumpers, or fiberglass replacement bumpers. Both have advantages and disadvantages.
Urethane bumpers were original equipment on your Corvette. They stretch and bend quite easily, making it easy for them to accommodate the minor differences in body panel alignment that exists between one Corvette and another. This stretching is a big advantage when installing the bumper cover to your Corvette.

Ordinary fiberglass replacement bumpers are very rigid. They do not ripple like urethane. Their paintable surface matches that of your Corvette and they do not decompose with heat and age like urethane. Several factors limit the fit of a fiberglass replacement bumper, however. Ordinary fiberglass bumpers (if they are made using quality tooling and materials) provide an excellent surface to sand and paint but are sometimes very difficult to install. They sometimes just do not match the shape of your Corvette. Since ordinary fiberglass is rigid, it tends to shatter on impact, generally causing the bumper to be destroyed.

TRU FLEX BUMPERS are the obvious answer to the bumper dilemma. They have the benefits of both urethane and fiberglass bumpers. They are made using a revolutionary, specially formulated resin. The  formula, uses an entirely new chemistry concept in resins, links a urethane molecule to a stable polyester base that is formulated from the beginning to be both flexible and tough, is not just a common resin with a compromising additive.The  hand laying of True Flex resin with top quality fiberglass mat by highly skilled craftsmen provides unequaled consistency in weight and uniformity of thickness.

What does this mean to you? It means that TRU FLEX BUMPERS are an answer to the Bumper Dilemma. They are 70% more flexible than an ordinary fiberglass bumper, but incredibly tougher than a urethane bumper. TRU FLEX BUMPERS have the structural integrity and the same hard, smooth , easy to sand surface that ordinary fiberglass does, but are very easy to install due to the fact that they are flexible. If a TRU FLEX BUMPER becomes damaged it can be repaired with any common polyester resins or fillers. They have the same "feel" and "give" that a urethane bumper does. Once they are installed it is difficult to tell TRU FLEX BUMPERS apart from the original bumpers that came on your Corvette. TRU FLEX BUMPERS hold their shape. Finally, bumper covers that are flexible enough to fit your Corvette and yet will last for years- TRU FLEX BUMPERS.
