Does anyone know what year the full width pickup bumper was replaced by the short quarter ones.

I don't know but I can tell you that we used to run Mini Pick-ups as runabouts at work. Our 1966"D" reg one had a full width rear bumper. The 1971"J" reg replacement did not.

Yes, I too have read 1963 but I am not too sure if that is correct. Also heard they changed to the small ones in 1970. Not sure about that either.
Anymore suggestions anyone.

I'm sure I've seen them on late 60's pick ups.

Another avenue is to try to ascertain when the panel work changed, as the rear mounting lip is complete different for the later two piece bumper.

They didn't start until 1963. I don't know how long they continued.

The guy who used to run the sadly now defunct Mini Pickup forum had the rear bumper change over as around 1969.
