Can anyone tell me the difference between a wagon and a non-wagon rear bumper? I see non-wagon bumpers available and wagon bumpers can be scarce. I know that the wagons don't have back-up lights holes. Just wondering if the rest of the bumper was the same (specifically the center section).

First, I don't know for certain the difference.... but since the gas tank in a wagon in on one side of the car, vs under the trunk floor, you wouldn't fill the gas tank from behind the lic plate on the rear bumper. I don't know if the bumper would be different because of this.

Impala wagon does have back up light holes, Biscane and Belair do not.

The center section of the wagon bumper does not have a large enough space behind the tag for a gas filler neck, but the biggest difference is that it is wider. The ends are the same.
