    I read your 51s history of abandonment, neglect and degradation. Its great to see it being returned to its original glory, by someone who truly cares. You are doing a beautiful job. Well done

    Hi Stu,
    Yes, the fender is 11" at the center of the wheel well but 12" at the front. The fenders are removed and loose, it could be that when fully secured and bracketed in place it wouldn't bow out that extra inch. I placed it up against a flat surface to measure, held in place by hand. But it sounds like they can't be F1 fenders if they are much wider than 12" even. I'm happy - it was just by chance that I got them. When I bought them I had no idea there was a difference in model width.
    Again, thanks for your help. Cheers & beers! Tom

    Really, 12" at the front? I measured at the very top in the middle over the wheel. The half ton fenders will be much wider. The fenders on half tons are wider to compensate for the narrower bed. The rear track on both models is the same, so the fenders reach out more to cover the wheels. Stu

    Hi Tom. The fenders are different than used on the half tons. The F-2 and F-3 fenders measure 11" wide. I don't have an F-1 pickup to compare measurements. Below is a picture of the 8' "Express" bed with dimensions from one of my references, followed by a drawing of the half ton 6.5' bed. Good luck with the truck. Stu

    Finished reassembling a total basket case 1951 F2 pickup. Take a look at my album in my profile to see how it started and looks now.
