What I do for narrow fenders is to get a pair of trailer fenders and take a strip out of the middle and weld them back together to get the width I need..makes wider fenders as well by inserting a piece..those are usually 18 gauge and not herd to work with..

custom van

A lot of options, In the 50's we used the chrome spare tire covers from continental Kits ( for the youngsters, thats when you extended the back bumper brackets back and mounted the spare tire between the trunk and bumper. ) a lot of the 70's custom vans had outside mounted spare tires and metal covers.

The 1935-1936 Ford spare tire covers pop up on e-bay occasionally.

There's a company that is reproducing these in fiberglass. HERE is the link. They're about $50 I think.
