39 and 40 Standards only had one taillight on LH side but Deluxe models had two tail lights. If this is an aftermarket fender it is probably a 39/40 which means it is made for either model and the purchaser will have to drill the taillight holes. On a '35/36 there is a slight differance in the coupe/roadster and sedan fenders. I am not sure about then 39/40.

BB you are just a trouble maker....but you are correct. 38-40 are the same. It could be any one of the three.

You got it John, I was looking or the Standard, no right tail lamp, or right visor!

This is an NOS fender.

It's your floor.

I remember asking this same question months ago and it generated all kinds of contraversy depending on the souce. I was looking through my previous posts trying to find the posts but the system only keeps the last 200. CarolinaCustoms will just have to decide which source he wants to use. I am going to leave this one alone. Do you remember when it was Brian?

After a little research I will give it to you BB. Not the one I was thinking of but I didn't word it correctly. I should have said "made entirely of steel" Your floor BB

John, I was thinking the 1914 Dodge body built by the BUDD company, but the Hupmobile was one of the first (if not the first), to "use" a steel body. I guess it depends on source and wording.
