Default Help identify front bumper

I think it is a UK S2 front bumper...has brackets on the inside... has been in my old "shed" for years. Will need rechroming but I just found a good chrome shop that
just did my S1 rear bumper inexpensively.

A left over project from when I had my S2 Lump and was going to get rid of the ugly USA bumpers?

Once I find out what it is for sure, it will go up for sale.. cleaning out that shed (old play house for my daughter built 35 years ago and now falling down).

Default It is just a S1 front bumper

Had several emails and then looked at Series 2 parts manual... back to S1 manual and it is just an original bumper without front overriders..

Play houses!!!!

1. I built one, largely of ply wood for very young son and daughter in El Centro. Duplexed!!! One side a garage with a big door. The other a "doll house. Window and smaller door. Kids loved it, sibling rivalry and all. When it came time to sell the house, it enthralled the buyer's kids!!

A few years later, now living in Mission Hills, a San Fernando valley community. I built a twin. Much less use, out grown... New buyer, a single gal, not impressed!!! House got painted irredescent green and black!!!

Decade later... A really slick one in the back lot. Has aloft and a steeple or bell tower!!! I can't decide if it mimics a church or a school house. Even has a door with a glass and a pair of windows. Built of repurposed full size lumber. Barn red siding, white trim, and a lapped blue roof. It is starting to suffer rot on one corner.

Stuffed with old records, car magazines, a sting ray bicycle, etc. Still water tight, but squirrels like it!!!

Looks like the same guy built a "shop" of similar material. I repurposed it into a home office. I am still stripping out old business junk. It's file cabinets now safe guard old car magazines and four decent Kent Jaguar wheels. Why? I've no answer....
