Projects N.O.S. 1930s fender ID please

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by 34 GAZ, Aug 11, 2021.

  1. An acquaintance of mine has found two pairs of L & R front fenders with sparewheel wells but has no idea what they are from. Seller told him Chrysler but his search on google has no results. Part numbers in white paint are 375160 and 375159. I would think the two holes in the front of the fenders are not for a headlight bracket as they look to small but for a parking light . Going by the size of the sparewheel well it looks like the wheels were mounted up high . Any ideas ?

    post a few more pictures here, looking at them from a "front 3/4 view"....so we can see the whole fender, as it would appear on a car.

    The part numbers could be a few different makes. Chrysler corp numbers were well into the 4s by 1935, the first year that my Hollanders book covers. GM used numbers very similar to these, so that's where I'd start looking. You can do a lot just using google images, trying various cars from the era. My guess is 1928-32

    edit: or perhaps up to 1934, from the shape near the grill

  11. Was researching this a little more and it seems chevrolet mounted the spare tire on the passenger fender and GMC mounted the spare tire on the drivers fender , never seen a 34 35 36 truck with spares on both sides .

    Maybe in Europe they put spare dimples on both sides because they might be used in England or the continent?
     
  15. He has sold one pair and seeing he is a Ford guy he will probably sell or trade the other two as well.
