Can anyone confirm this?...it's difficult for me to tell from photo's but they sure look the same. I have a '39 Pontiac 2 door sedan and need some fenders....considering fiberglass.

I know that the complete front ends interchange, as I once had a 39 Chevy coupe with a complete indian front end on it. Only the real Chevy or Pontiac collector guys knew the defference!!

I am thinking they are the same, here is a book that would give your more info:

http://www.gregsonline.com/eshop/Htm...tiac-books.htm

1939-1940 Body and Construction Manual G.M. Fisher, for all models.

The GM Fisher Body Service and Construction Manuals are very helpful when doing a total rebuild. It shows body wood (early models), upholstery styles, trim, trunk area and body alignment, dash, door assemblies, locks, exterior moldings, seats, glass, headlining, roof cover, electrical, adjustment and installation procedures

Hey Dave,
That was quick,
If I remember right, getting old now, most of the bodies were the same - the changes were in the grills, emblems and detailing.
Hope you find a real answer.

39 pontiac fenders

There is a small difference in the pontiac fenders as they have a faint ridge that runs down the middle of the fender that chevy does not have. I have a 39 pontiac and just finished a 39 chev. Close, but different none the less.

39 pontiac fenders

The model 2511 is a QUALITY 2 DR TOURING SEDAN with a 115" wheel base. The stock engine was a flathead 6 if it had a Pontiac engine or an OHV 6 if the engine was a Chevy. All rear fenders should interchange from what I can discern.
