Can anyone shed any light on the bumperettes with the rubber strip listed in WB parts catalogue? I have seen a couple of sets but they are very unusual. We’re they ever offered on the Ute/van from the factory or were they just a dealer fit option that no one knew about?

Do you mean bumper bar Over Riders? If so they would be a Dealer fitted accessory.

No, they are the normal rear bumperettes that all utes and vans had, but they had a rubber insert the same as the WB Statesman front bar.

I've never seen these on a real car. They may have been an option (or accessory) at the time. PO number VE5 (Front & Rear Bumper Bar Rub Strip) does appear in the option list so it may have been been a real thing.

There are several items like this in the WB commercial range. In the parts catalogue they detail a rear screen demister glass for panel vans. Again I've never seen one but they would be handy, as WB panel van upper glass will fit back to HD !!

There is also BO6, XU4 and B47 listed for WB and I’ve never seen a single car with any of them. Also not sure what BO6 got you on WB, unless that is what the early WB Holden van and cab-chassis with the Kingswood front was. I haven’t seen a detracted GVW on a WB ute or van and never seen a van with Kingswood full length headlining.

The bumperettes definitely exist. There has been a couple of sets pop up lately. I can’t post a picture of them unfortunately.
Wonder if they had plans for them but never actually used them? They were produced though.
