1942 Roadmaster fender sheet metal

Recommended Posts

Yet another question regarding to the car I bought in a state of miscarried restoration.

Obviously some previous owner has put this car back together in a hurry, may be missing some parts...

Looks like I am missing some special sheet metal parts of the fender extensions under the doors, see attached photo.

 

The car is Series 70 Roadmaster 4D sedan ("formal sedan" or "town sedan", it's not slant back...)

Was this particular body one year only, or was the same body available after the war 1946, -47, -48?

Any idea where to get these sheet metal parts?

p.s. I think my car should look like this one...

The basic body was used in 1942, 1946, 47 and 48. The chrome trim is completely different, but the body sheet metal is the same. There could be some differences in the fenders, certainly the bolt holes for trim are different. May have some sheet metal depending on what you are looking for , but the cost to ship to Europe would be dear.

I always liked the Art Deco look of this car.  Also I really liked the SIMPLE grill, so smooth and eye appealing, IMO.

 

The car BEGS for  two tone, WITHOUT SCALLOPS, hehe.  You didn't think I would ever admit to such, huh?

 

I wish you well,

Jack,

Please see the first photo in this thread; I am missing the bottom parts of the fender extensions. Looks like the part below front fender is bolted to the running board below the front door.

I have services in NY and LA harbors, freight forwarders to whom the parts can be shipped (business address), they'll put 'em in sea containers and I'll be able to pick 'em up at a Finnish port.

Thus it might be doable if you have what I'm missing.

Thanks,

Pekka
