Go for new ones.
Mine were cracked when i bought my car. I tried to repair them, but the 30+ years old urethane is so brittle that it just fell apart.

I sold my 75 last summer, now I just have the 2000. 3 years ago I replaced the front with a fiberglass one (I was being cheap). It took a lot of work to get a nice looking fit (fit it before you paint) but once it was done it looked good. If I had to do it all over again I think I would have gone with the GM licensed urethane.

Fiberglass (or flexi-glass or whatever it is called, that is supposed to be a little more flexible). I've only changed the back one though.

As born2saw said, it takes some work to get it good. Don't expect the fit to be 100% when you get it.
Also, I spent a lot of time to remove the old one, but at that time I thouth that it could be repaired. If I had to do it again I'd just rip it apart. Buy the new type of retainers that can be found in most catalogs to install the new one.

I have a new fiberglass bumper that I would sell at a real resonable price. I have replaced the rear one with a fiberglass and it wasn't any problem compared to the front one.

I have a 1977 used urethane front bumper cover and a 1982 urethane rear bumper. There is a small tear (~1") on the rear bumper on the bottom.

Would these fit on a 75?
