My 31 66s has a body number 5323 out of 6,489 and has the single bar bumpers. Not sure about Buick but in 31 the Chevrolet customer could go either way once both were available. They were installed at the dealer.

According to my parts manual, all 1930 cars had 2 bar bumpers.  All 1931 and 32 had 1 bar bumpers.  They are all Wolverine Brand bumpers.

 

Sure are a lot of 31 cars with 2 bar bumpers.  My Buick for 1931 original sales brochure pictures all the cars with 2 bar bumpers.  My 1931 8-66S is much earlier than Dave Dunton's 1931 8-66S, has 2 bar bumpers and we came to the conclusion only the later 31 cars got 1 bar bumpers.  No argument on 32's they did all have 1 bar bumpers.

The 31 dealer book shows two illustrations of the single bar bumper( 96C and 56C). The only catch that muddies the water on this is the book describes the second version of the 50 series with Syncro-Mesh transmission and enclosed drive shaft. I am not sure when the 50 series change took place.
