G506 vs. CCKW front fenders?

Post by 42cargo » Wed Aug 20, 2014 6:33 pm

Is there a difference between a G506 and G508 front fender? I was always under the impression the former is slightly shorter than the latter. Is that correct?

Same length, same hole pattern, the only noticeable difference is the doubler or reinforcing plate found under the front two or three inches of the CCKW fender. I installed a NOS of each type on my CCKW. The Chevrolet fender is on the right side.
Don't be afraid to mix the fender makes on a G-506 or G-508, few realize the difference. Dr Deuce has discovered that the reinforcing plate attracts rust, didn't you Dr. Deuce.

The CCKW reenforcing at the front indeed holds stuff that will rot out the top of the fender. The Chev does not have this piece. Because of that, the Chev will crack just outboard of the outside grill mounting bolt.
