The plastic used on bumpers, fenders, etc, can be easily "fused" using the right solvent - it's like fusing the parts of a plastic model together, just a lot bigger. There are various solvents you could use and to see what's available in your area check with some local body shops or auto paint suppliers -either could recommend what's available locally to solve your problem. If you use this method, do it in a well ventilated area. You could also use heat to melt the pieces together - this is more difficult & you could destroy the bumper just as easily as fuse it if you haven't done anything like this before.

Alternatively, you could check with local auto salvage yards to see who has bumpers available for that vintage.h
