I know you and I have discussed this before...the $400 fender was a 1959 and older style, hence the price. It's not the same fender you are looking for. The late '59 through 1969 fender goes for about $175-250 depending on condition and how many people want it at the time, and they are on eBay all the time.

Yes the curve of the fender was correct. However the bead on the side that follows the outside lip of the fender was not stamped real nice. Took a little body work to straighten it out. They are workable but if I had it to do over I would try and find an original one.

I haven't mentioned the repops come in raw steel finish,so the spot welds on the struts will need a little bondo to make them look smooth for paint.
