The "non" dented fender

Post by Hayslip » September 9th, 2014, 6:08 pm

Here is a heavy duty express photographed circa 1934. Note this truck has a fender well but does NOT have the door with the dent in it. This is a well maintained truck and it is obvious the door has not been changed. The fender mounted spare wheel preceded the dented door. The dented door was an afterthought. This is about the 82B cab only. I have no info on deluxe panel trucks, ambulances etc. The image is #3984228 from the NY Public Library digital collection.

Hello Ed,
Thanks for sharing. FYI - I changed the subject to door (not fender). Although the rear fender appears to have been dented.

Great to see this documentation regarding not having a indented door for all AA's with the left front fender wheel carrier.
Regards, Neil Wilson

2 possible explanations for this are: the indented door came along after the fender mounted spare, or maybe the Buffalo NY assembly plant just didn't have any indented doors when that truck was built.
