I picked these up for a project and have been given conflicting information on make/model/year. Anyone have any insight? Most late 20s fenders are more like a 'splash panel'. As fenders evolved the side skirting increased, hiding the frame rails and spare tire wells (32-33). The 'pocket' like coverage of the fender increased and amount of coverage in front of the tire increased (34-35) until the fender reached the bumper. These fenders are unique with dual spare tire wells and stamped raised reveals on the rounded pocketed front edge where pin stripes typically come to a point. In addition to these unique attributes, the fenders are somewhat of a conflict in history. When fenders have this much side skirting they typically do not have a spare tire well (let alone dual wells). And when you have rounded bulbed front edge the fender typically comes down farther toward the bumper. The mounting hole on top the fender is for a light. Inside the fender there is a hard conduit with a single electrical wire. Mounting holes on the inboard hump of the fender seem consistent with a headlight bar making the top light a marker light. I've studied thousands of pictures, the closest I have found is a 1931 Nash Ambassador.
