North America

USA and Canada market. For 1974, USA models got large bumpers to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards regulation 215(b). The mandate that created the "park-bench" bumpers were not about safety, but part of the Cost Saving Act. The idea was to reduce the cost of repair of minor accidents (below 5 mph) and so benefit the consumer. For more details, see FMVSS 215.

Retrofitting Worldwide Bumpers

You will need make up new custom brackets to mount the worldwide bumpers (120Y or JDM B210) onto a North American B210.

SEDAN REAR: When fitting the smaller bumpers there's two holes, from where the 5mph bumper shocks/brackets mount. And the new bumper covers the top half of them. So a new beaver panel is not really needed.

USA: large holes. Worldwide: small holes

NOTE: 1200 bumpers don't quite fit the B210. They need to be bent a little bit, and are narrower.

Barracuda sells B210 bumper in steel about $300

The wide-cutout bumper has just happens to line up perfectly the with lower valence on a North America B210, but the JDM bumper has a smaller plate cut-out, about the size of a US license plate. the JDM bumper makes for a cleaner install, but the wide-cutout bumper may be cheaper and easier to obtain out of Australia.
