  • Need front fenders for a '56 sedan or wagon

    ol' Bess' front fenders are dented up and rusty. I mean, they're serviceable, I just don't possess the equipment or expertise to fix the rust (nor the money to pay those who do). So, does anyone have a good, no rust, pair lying around that they'd be willing to part with for a reasonable price? I know, I know, dream on, right?

    Hi Ron,

    I bet you hold the record for the biggest percentage of your posts err... "lamenting" about not having any- or enough- money.....

    I hope you can get goin' and get your income level raised up soon! Makes me feel a little guilty about working full-time and building a business just so I will have the $$ to get all my family needs plus (mostly) what I want [^]

    I hope you don't think less of me for being prosperous! The good news is, this country is positively LOADED with opportunity for anyone who wants to go get it!!

    I wish you all the best, my friend- and I'll be rootin' for ya!

                    I don't know weather to say thanks, ouch or sorry, Robert. But thanks anyway for the wheel. It's beautiful. I wasn't planning on staying here and expected the union to do their job. Therefore my job searching wasn't in this area. Since I'm not moving, I decided to spend the few pennies I had saved, to make Bess the best daily car I can. And yes, I'm now looking for work. Things look good.

                    I tried Wisconsin Studebaker. They don't have any and don't know of a supplier. They seem to be really nice people and promised to 'beat the bushes' for me. I figured I'd abuse a few bushes myself.

                    Glowacky, 'Studebaker parts? Which one? Is that Studebaker International, SASCO, or someone else?

                    Yeah, I saw that ad in TW too. I called Wisconsin Studebaker. Answer above.

                        Hi Ron,

                        Well, Many of us (me) share the same issues that Ron does regarding finances. However, I've learned to keep my mouth shut about it because I seem to loose creditability with those who do indeed have a comfy situation.

                        Ron is a fine gentleman and is good intentioned. For somebody who has meager income, he is very generous. Please don't make him sound like a "whiner". He is dealing the best he can with the bad lot circumstances of life gave him.

                        Thanks

                            I think many of us are in the same boat with Ron. Even though I have my own business, with my income, I definitely shouldn't be putting money into cars, especially since I am 62 and have no money for retirement!. [xx(]

                            But passion rules! Hope you find some fenders, Ron.
