I'm looking for a pair of rubber gravel guards (rock shields) for a '50 Champion 4-door. I know rubber deteriorates, so am willing for them to be less than perfect, but would like for them to be whole and decent.

I believe SI has reproduced gravel shields for the four door sedans in an ABS plastic; saw them at York. Check with them for the year/model application.

I have a really nice pair of rubber ones here- but I have a question- are they the same for 47-52? I'm not sure what year they are.

Thanks Brad and Evan. Evan, I don't know for sure myself about the 47-52 span. I've seen a lot of stuff listed for that time span, but just don't know.
Maybe someone who knows will tell us.

They're not all alike during those years. It's been too long since I researched this for my own car, but you should refer to the parts manual or maybe someone will post some pictures.

47-49 are one style and 50-52 are a different style. They will still interchange but would not be correct.

Brad -- I called SI and what they said they have are splash guards for installation hanging down from the fender wells. If you are sure you saw the gravel guards for the bottom rear of the rear doors of a 4-door, let me know more about what you saw and maybe I can get them to admit to having them.

Evan -- I have made a measurement diagram of the one that I have. If you are willing, I can take a picture of the gravel guard and send it with the measurement diagram to your mailing address. After reading Milt's post, I want to be a little careful about getting the right ones. If you prefer, I can post the measurements on here, hoping that it isn't too hard to understand.

Once again, thanks everyone for the posts, and I hope they keep coming. These two things are proving to be the hardest to find component for the entire restoration. whew.

Email has been sent. Very nice club website, btw. Guess most of you guys have work areas like those shown, I am truly envious. Much better than my driveway.
