fender supports Model A


Recommended Posts

I purchased a partially restored 1930 Standard Roadster a while back and I noticed that the rear fenders don't have support braces. There are no holes anywhere on the fenders or the body for the braces to mount. Did Ford ever make Model A's without rear fender braces? All answers greatly appreciated!

The rear braces mount to the frame and there should be a hole on the lower rear fender moulding for a bolt. Perhaps the previous owner filled the hole in the fender or it may be fiberglass.The brace is mounted horizontally and bends around the rear of the tire, if I remember correctly. '30 and '31's used a stamped steel brace.

If I'm not mistaken the rear fender braces mount to the body, not the frame. Your inner fender panels may have been replaced at one time, the reproduction panels don't come drilled for the braces. Your rear fenders should have a hole drilled in the outer flange for the outer edge of the fender brace. In April of 1929 the brackets were changed from forged to stamped steel.
