I am not sure regarding Studebaker Commanders, but I saw that some fenders are for sale here: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=702259

The only front fenders that fit a 50 Commander are from a 50 commander or a 50 Land Cruiser. All 50 commander body styles (coupe, two door, four door, land cruiser, convertible) have the same front fenders.

But NOT from a 51, or a 52, or even a 50 Champion. Many folks do not observe the differences in sheet metal between different years and models of Studebakers. The fenders on the HAMB are 51 and will not fit your 50 Commander.

The rear fenders are the same from a 50 Champion to a 50 Commander, as long as you stay within the same body type (like 4 door).

The 51 and 52 rear fenders will fit with the possible exception of some of the holes that mount the tail light assemblies. That should not be a difficult problem to deal with.

If you want a customized look, 47-49 rear fenders (Champion or Commander) will bolt up and you will have different tail lights.
