We all have stories like this, but I was at the Carlisle swap meet in 1986 or 87 and a Mopar vendor had a tractor trailer load of NOS Mopar fenders. In his trailer were two NOS 62-63 Lark fenders. I asked him about them and he said that he would sell them to me real cheap. I asked how much and he said $50.00 each. I said I didn't need them because I had just finished restoring my 62 Lark convertible, and he said how about $50.00 for the pair? I still didn't buy them. [xx(]

Well, if they are worth that much coin, someone should see the potential of reproducing them.

You'd think, wouldn't you? After all, the ones that are out there aren't getting any less rusty [xx(] I've even seen tech articles showing how to save '62-'63 fenders by grafting on the rear 5" of a '64-'65 fender. Maybe we should call this to CE's attention?

I think this is crazy[:0] It's not really THAT big a deal to fix all but the absolute worst of them! Most I've seen have the back edge and inner fold intact; easy to make a patch for, weld in, finish, and POR-15 from behind!

Unless this is a show-quality r2 Super Lark resto, I just don't get it!!

I've got nice, solid, used Lark fronts here and folks groaning about paying $250 apiece for them - WITH INNERS!

Hey - I don't wanna badmouth anyone, but if you'll recall, there was a guy busted in here from the Netherlands not too long ago. HAD to HAVE a coupla fenders for the wrecked 51 Starlight his insurance company was gonna pay to fix.
I've got the two fenders he wanted - one front and one rear (and 2-door rears are TOUGH to FIND!) I wanted $700 for the pair plus shipping. The "shipping", for me (after I dragged them out, weighed them, measured them and consulted various shippers to see what would be best), entailed wrapping the ungainly things in cardboard and taking them to UPS. While they're no so heavy as big, the shipping was gonna be a bit less than what I wanted for the pieces. I think it came to $1100 total - parts and shipping.
UPS was gonna haul them to Los Angeles where the buyer had an arrangement with an exporter to haul them to Sweden or wherever it was they were going.
So - here's a pair of solid fenders for a 56-year old car - half a world away - and he balks at the total cost. No more shipping them anywhere. PITA! Strictly cash and carry.:( Sorry to carp, but in the face of mounting prices like these (admittedly NOS, but still....), why should I be expected to give valuable stuff away after I've stored it for a dozen years[?]
