What also intrigued me was the rear bumper, which I believe to originate from an early-model Triumph Dolomite 1850. Did New Zealand specification Triumph Toledos have a plain bumper like mine and number-plate illumination in the underside of boot-lid top or was production rationalised by using a Dolomite bumper!?! In one of the pictures below, one can just see the edge, of what might be a number-plate illumination unit in the underside of boot-lid top
I rather like that early-model Triumph Dolomite 1850 rear bumper with the long single number-plate illumination lamp, but I wonder how well it would illuminate the higher-position licence plate on a Toledo!?!
Here are a matched pair of front & rear bumpers which I am contemplating the acquisition for my 1974 Triumph Toledo.
I don't presently have a front bumper and that rear bumper looks as though its chrome plating might be in better condition than my existing rear bumper. In addition to licence-plate illumination, I also need to consider the routing of the lamp-units wiring, given that I also have a Dolomite towing bracket fitted!?!
