1936/37 fender identification

Post by Herbybug » Tue Dec 28, 2021 2:16 pm

I have been told that a right front fender I have could be for a 1936-37 120, a 1937 120, or a 1937 115. Where can I get information to determine which it is? I appreciate the replies to my previous post, I have added some photos that might be helpful. I am assuming this type of fender is common. Thanks.

That suuuuure looks like my '37 115 fender. I'll take some photos/measurements and get back to you.

Depending on the length, I suspect that's a 115 or 120 fender for a '37. The width of the trailing edge at the running board appears to be 15"; the length of my 115C fender from that trailing edge to the most-forward part of the fender (the center ridge) is about 62.5". The mounting holes for the headlight are identical. My 115C has four holes in the flange that is under the hood, that are used to secure the inner fender liner to the fender.

I do not have any dimensions on the 120 fender, but I do know that they're longer along with the hood, to make room for the straight 8.

The 115-C and 120-C front fenders are very close in length. The big difference is in the arc where the bottom of the hood side meets the fender.

One can differentiate a 120 vs. 115c fender is by the width of the back end of the fender where the runningboard attaches.

The bottom of the back end of the fender where it meets the running board is 16.75 inches. The horizontal surface closest to the hood measures 37 inches from front to where it breaks at a 15-20 degree angle down to some bolt holes.
