No..

US Spec and destined cars YES had over rider bumpers.

Euro and other Country specs cars.. No.. well maybe some.


Chances are.. if the car is abandoned in the woods... . its been scavenged already..

Another possibility a Euro transplant abandoned in the USA.

Even more likely.. = previous owner syndrome.. who knows. and anyone's guess.

they were optional in rest of the world, also many owners retrofitted them,
some countries also got them as their only option (Italy and Brazil I think for example)
