What are these fenders?
« on: May 20, 2020, 04:23:53 PM »
Many, many years ago I bought what I was told were 67 fenders for a future restoration of my 68 coupe.
I recently got them out of storage and found that the headlight bucket mounts are different.  I thought that 67 fenders were the same as 68s with the exception of the side lights. The fenders do look/fit as my original 68 fenders with the exception of some minor non-functional metal forming around the radiator support mounts
It looks to me that someone cut out/bent over the original headlight bucket mounts and welded in different mounts?  are these for a 69 bucket? or are 67s different from 68s? The emblem holes were shaved also so it was not used previously as stock.
I'm thinking I'll fix/use my original fenders now. I'd like to know how to describe what I have when I move them on.
Thanks for your help

ah - thanks!  I didn't know enough to ask the right questions when I bought them.  Thanks for the response.
