I believe these are part of the Bumper Guards which were an option on 59 chevrolet models. I used to have a set of these which fit the front (you could also get rears). I sold mine about 10 years ago, if I remember correctly I got close to 300 for the entire piece, I am sure it is worth more now.

99.9% sure they are 59 only...

If I remember right, they also were referred to as "Mae West" guards for obvious reasons.

Another common name for these is "Bumperettes".
