Grille Guards (front bumpers) were never a factory installed item. They were only dealer supplied optional accessories. You have a later Hundred/Thousand Series bumper. Not a big deal if not concerned with originality and the fact it works well is the important factor. OEM ones pop up on fleabay often, most have bent or missing bars. New repops also at DC & Just8s. FWIW & FYI, here is an original FORD 8N bumper. Note 4 bars are riveted on, curved side braces, and welded tow bracket. Expect to pay at least $250 for a repop and maybe same for a used one.
