None of those fenders fit your 71 Super. Save your gas.

Good to know. Thanks

Fenders for your '71 have a slot opening for the bumper brackets. The oval or triangular openings are for '74 & ...

Those two burgundy-colored ones are definitely late rear fenders, like '73-up when they went to the big taillights.

Pan is solid other than where the gas is puddling. Must have been leaking for a while. I still can't find anything wet on top. I guess I'm going to have to pull the tank.

Good advice. I'll keep it in mind. I know we're around the corner from tax return time too... I'd like to have it ready to go by then.

Is the frame head rusted badly....the area under the master cylinder? Looks like metal peeling up in the photo. If so, that will need attention.

It's an area I would call (on other cars) the fire ...
