Looking for a good, solid. passenger-side front fender 17-23. Original paint in places would be great.

I can not believe some one has not given one up yet! Year ago I looked for 25 Coupe rear fenders, found shit for three years, now every time I go to hershey they are every where!

Mark, it may help if you specify a RIGHT fender.

I'm not sure what year these are for but they look similar to yours. They have been on Craigslist for most of this year. It looks like the only possible original paint is on the bottom. Tops have primer.

They are in Pella Iowa.

LOL ... well Allan, I assumed that any fender I would find would be in the US so passenger was more specific than “right” side. Right and left can be interpreted two ways depending on if you are sitting in the car or standing in front. 😀

Thanks Mark. I’ll follow up on that Craigslist post. Hope he will ship them if they fit the bill.

Mark, does that mean that your LHD cars become RHD when you stand in front of them? I think not.

Ha ... no of course Allan. It’s context in this case. I would never buy a fender that coast me $500 for shipping. So I can say passenger side here in the US. Next time I go to one of the RHD countries I would say drivers side. But if you prefer I say right side ... ok. I need a right side front fender. Do you have one with free shipping? 😄

Enhanced photos with limited software. Things I noticed. First is the under side painted but not the tops? In the black fender photo one fender edge is not painted. One lower fender doesn't look correct. The fenders are different years, one lacks the crease (co called commercial fender but don't see the front lip). One fender had a split repair (see other photos too)

Repairs look like lead (some shine) was used not Bondo. The running board edges look good though.

Thanks, yes these pictures and the reluctance of the seller to communicate is a red light.
