Willys coupe fenders??

Have picture of Willys fenders ? As evident in shot; trailing edges of fenders are different. Left unit has more circular tail. while right unit has elliptical tail. Left unit also has long sweeping curve on inner edge. while right unit has shorter abrupt curve. My problem at this time is: Which fender is the proper one to fit a '33 Willys coupe body. I have this situation as I've been to various swap meets and car shows looking for Willys coupes and haven't found anyone to definitely give a firm opinion. Can anyone give a definite answer? It would be greatly appreciated as I'm getting ready to build a '33 Willys coupe body. Thanks for any help on this matter. . . . Pete. [IMG] my pictures/varied shots 003[/IMG]

My '36 Willys (same as a '33 from the cowl back) has the original steel fenders and I had the same problem - wrinkled fender tails that had to be reconstructed. From what I can tell from your picture ( kind of fuzzy and very subtle differences), the 'elliptical' tail is the most accurate and the inside and outside sides should be straight, no jumps.

Willys 36 - - - thank you for such a fast response. I haven't seen any of the '33 style with fenders recently - in fact; I haven't seen many recently. It seems as though they're either stashed away from human contact or getting extinct; of which neither should happen. If this project comes out half-way decent; maybe I'll figure out how to post some pictures into the 'album' pages. I've some pictures of other projects; but not sure if they're worthy of space. Once again - -thanks.... Pete.

Don't feel like you are jinxed. I see very few model 77s in California too. Probably one 77 for every 20 Americars. I am usually the only model 77 at the NSRA Western Street Rod Nationals among 1700 rods and 15 or 20 Americars.
