  • Sourcing a '47 Champion passenger side fender?

    Hey folks,

    I'm looking at a '47 Champion 4door project car that has been sitting a long time. Most of it doesn't worry me too much, but the passenger front fender was chopped up at one point, and the car will need a "new" fender. I checked most of the usual culprits web sites, but haven't seen much in the way of sheetmetal for sale.

    Any tips on where to source such a beast? I haven't bought the car as it's no better than a parts car unless I can find this piece.

    That's primarily going to be a swap meet item. I've seen excellent used, as well as NOS, show up at York and Reedsville, the two eastern swaps I attend. If you can't get to a swap meet, advertising (free TW ad to SDC members) and networking will produce results.
