Re: New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

Good grief. I suppose at one time though, that old panel truck probably wasn't worth a whole lot to anyone. It's a different story today though, that's for sure.

Wanted: Set of 21" tires

Hey fellas, I'm looking for a decent set of 21" tires for a '29 project. They don't need to be fancy or new, but I would like them to be roadworthy. Thanks!

Re: New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

Cool, thanks for the info! Now I wanna take a closer look at mine to see what I've got.

I'll have to get the passenger door open first. It's either locked or the latch is froze up, and I...

Re: New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

Thanks man, I've enjoyed messing with it so far, and I'm just getting started. I picked up a couple of repair manuals recently, and found some cad templates to create new floorboards with. I'm...

Re: New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

10-4, I'll try to remember to look next time. I'll probably take some more pics when I go to clean the junk out of the inside.

There's a spare wheel/tire and some other odds and ends of parts...

Re: New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

Haha that thing is awesome! I looked up some similar pics on Google last night after someone mentioned the mail service. Imagine that pulling up to your mailbox every day. Very cool. My dad is a...

Re: New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

Thanks, I was not aware. I have much to learn about these. The idea that those plugs may have been in there for almost 100 years is pretty wild. Super cool.




I don't think I'm ready to...

Re: New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

That's pretty cool! I'm not sure if the plow tread tire belongs on this car or was just put on to make it a roller, but it stands to reason the fenders were hacked up for tire clearance.

Re: New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

It doesn't really look due to damage, unless all 4 corners were damaged the same way. They are all cut. I guess it doesn't really matter, I was just curious if anyone had seen this before. I saw...

New-to-me '29, Butchered Fenders?

Hi fellas. I bought this beauty recently and am curious why the fenders were cut up like they are. As if to provide more tire clearance or something. Both front fenders are butchered. The rear...
