another update on my david bradley I found these old sears fenders online. just finished cleaning them up and still had some paint left over, shot it today. they look pretty sharp not sure if they were an option on the 59-61's but it's going on mine.

Be sure to post some pictures of it !! I was thinking of doing the exact same thing. :beerchug:

You beat me to it.

 

PS : It looks like those fenders first came out on the 63'  725

Don't get your hopes up too high.  I may have a pair of rims for your D.B. 

I bought a parts suburban last summer and shoved it into the corner. Give me a little time to dig it out and check the front rims.

They will be a little rough.  I'll get some pics and let you know.   hopefully we'll get you fixed up.     Rick

Good thing you reminded me!  I read your post and remembered about the left side being left hand thread,  like the old Chrysler products.

I got the rims off. The tires are garbage which is too bad 'cause I like that 5 rib style. 

Let me get the tires off and find out what it'll cost to send them to you.

This might be your lucky day.  If I dig deep enough I can come up with another set.  Give me a little time.

Once I get jableman squared away  I'll try to make your day.     Rick
