I found something interesting today while doing some more researching on David Bradleys.

fenders.jpg

In the 1963 Farm and fencing catalog you could order fenders for your DBs in both Seaton Blue and Nugget Gold .

These are not the squarish fenders that came on the 64' 725 .

In 1962 The 725 was square hood in Seaton Blue / Arctic White while the 600 Suburban was still Gold and Blue.

The 600 went to Seaton and White in 1963 and was the last round hood DB .

 

Now - Does anyone know where I can find a pair?

   just fill out the form and mail it in, wait a two to three weeks for delivery and you should be in business.

Not as easy as it sounds.   Postage was 5 cents in '63. 

 

Where ya gonna find a 5 cent stamp?

Cool option for the old DB's! I still have my stamp collection from way back when. I'm sure I have a 5 cent stamp if you need one.

Darn -  I have the 59' catalog with the order form but they weren't available then .

I wonder if they will still ship if I fill in the order code?

I want them shipped by rail :D

Those are probably about as rare as finding some hen's teeth.

I wonder if it would be that hard to rig something out of later sears fenders - cut them down or something. Build a mount .

That has been done, might be able to find it on the web. I got lucky and picked up two sets of the early ones for my tractors.
