I have a NOS fender that I got in a load of parts that I believe is 57 Stude but can't verify . My parts books cover years all around 57 but not that year . The number on it is 4664303 . It appears to be for the left side .Can anyone help me ID this .

I think that's a Packard part number.

Are you sure about that part number? Does it really have 7 digits?

That is correct, with one less digit it would be a '51-'56 Packard Part Number and most likely not newer than '54. It is not the first number, they are a "4".

It MAY be a Four Door '55 or '56, I do not know if it is a Senior Packard or a Clipper.

There you go, that would explain the non-existent Part Number.

I have a master Buick chassis parts book but can't find that number . Maybe overlooking it . I see a post saying Packard . Is it definitely Packard ?

I think that you would need a Body Book, not a Chassis Book, for a rear fender/quarter panel.

For some strange reason , Studebaker put fenders and hoods in the chassis book section 16

Does this resemble your fender? Maybe that part number only appears in a collision parts book.

Only the hood and front fenders -- the rear fenders are in the body book. GM (and maybe others, too) did the same thing. It was based on practices that started in the 1920s, when coach builders built custom bodies, but the car companies provided the frame, all of the drive train and running gear, and the front clip of fenders and hood (think Duesenberg J). The body was considered to start at the cowl. Everything in front of that was normally described in the chassis book.

Dwayne G , it is close but look at the bottom of the tail light bezel . There is extra metal area before the bottom cutout . The one I have blends in to the cutout .

I wonder if it's because say 55 - 57 or possibly even 54s had some slight changes ?
