Does anyone have one good 1937 terraplane front bumper guard. Good original chrome would be great.  want to cover crank hole in bumper.

    Were you aware that the hole was originally filled with a larger version of the oval head bumper bolt?  Of course, a third bumper guard would work fine as well.  (It's possible that other makes used the same sort of oversized bolt to hide their crank hole, and if so, a reproduction might be available.)

    Thank you for your info. However, the bumper is cracked at the hole and has been welded . I would like to hide the weld.

    There was a larger ( taller ) accesory gaurd that matched the originals. It was in the Hudson accessory catalog I believe.
    I had one on my 37 Terraplane

    The taller one would be great but probably harder to find than the std 9 in ones . Any out there?

    It sounds like you need to find the guy who bought what was posted on the forum 2 weeks ago on OCT 1st: "two front bumpers and one rear bumper plus 6 bumper guards all from a 1937 Terraplane" which then said they were sold.  The post is off the forum now, so you'd need some help.
    These are on EBay right now; https://www.ebay.com/itm/1930s-Hudson-Terraplane-bumper-guards-ABSOLUTELY-STUNNING-Show-Quality-Set-of-4/133365653864

    I've been looking for 34T bumper guards for years - unobtainium.  I have one 1934 Hudson bumper guard with the triangle on it - doubtful it would be useful for you, but maybe if you were desperate and wanted to modify something.

    They are not for a 1937 Terraplane.

    If you live near Syracuse, NY, have a trailer, and some room on your property to dismantle a car, you can get four bumper guards plus some other spare '37 parts for just $750!  https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/1937-hudson-terraplane.1206981/
