Is there a missing bracket

#1

Hi,

A picture from the front underside of my 69 convertible.It looks like something is missing from the front bumper/ valance to the frame. Same look from both sides. If something isn’t missing, there sure are a lot of holes... Does anyone have some insight as to what (if anything) should be there?

Hi Mike,
That is where the front bumper guard would mount if equipped.
There would be an additional hole on the valance panel to secure
the top edge of the bumper guard.
