    SOS: 1947 GM fenders!!!!


    Hey fellow hotrod enthusiasts, I am restoring a 1947 Oldsmobile Sports Coupe 66 Special (3527) and I find myself in a bit of a jam. I was 16 and when it was time to shop around for my first car to restore, I knew I wanted a “fat fendered” car from late 30’s to early 50’s and I found her on eBay. She was on a farm in Virginia, beautiful place, and was in pretty good shape for a sixty year old casual car. The car was missing both door fender extensions, which I found two years later in NOS condition (thanks to eBay) but now my attention is aimed at the four fenders, which are still usable but in not so good shape and finding another set could mean less body work (not that I‘m afraid of the work it’s just time consuming) I’m 19 and I don’t have all that much experience in mix matching these old models and resources here are limited but the question is “would I be able to find and fit fenders from a similar coupe for other GM makes like Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, and Pontiac?” Thanks to all who read this and ponder with me, and I’m open to any and all information or personal experiences, thank you all…Shawn J

    Car Year, Make, Model: '51 Chevy Fleetline and a Ratrod project

    Unfortunatly, in the 40's, Chevy, Pontiac, Olds and Buick built completely different cars, with Olds and Pontiac simmilar... if your car is a Special, some of the parts from a small body pontiac '46-'48 will fit, if it's a Dynamic, your SOL... fenders from a '46-'48 small body pontiac should fit ( you would need to check this out completly ) but the grille would likely not fit, and you would need the pontiac peice..
    You don't know what you've got til it's gone
