Curt,
I can't see it very well in your photos. So is my bumper correct or wrong?
Thanks,
Richard

Your bumper mounts on the back of the attaching bar which is correct for the 31-33 cars. Look closely at the left front of the dark colored car at the bottom of the pix. Too many computer scans for good resolution. Others may have better pix. Look only at old original pix for correctness, not someones restored car.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
Be of Good Cheer

I believe your bumper is correct. The chrome bumper wraps around the spring bar. A good copy of Curts picture shows it very clearly. If you have a copy of Jon Bill's book, Auburn Automobiles, it shows the patent drawing on page 60 for the Phaeton. It's very clear there. It is also in the patent drawing for the Cabriolet in Lee Beck and Josh Malks book, Auburn & Cord, page 75. In both books on the next pages, there is a picture of Alan Leamy in a Speedster that shows the bumpers too.

Found the 4view drawing and you can see my bumper is correct.
Thanks to everyone for all the input.
