Pass Fender 70 Cuda
« on: August 26, 2018 - 12:59:29 pm »
What year fender will fit a 70 Cuda. The reason im asking is my car is all painted an being put back tighter. I bought a new antenna for 145 dollars foe a ebody at Moparfest. It will not fit the hole in my fender is a plain 1 inch hole. Then I put my grille back in yesterday the drivers side bezel puts pretty good but the pass side I can stick my finger between the fender an bezel. You cant move the grille and the stainlees trim on the grille an bezel have  to line up. I know it was a different fender when we got the car but it was stripped and sat for 15 years so I don't remember how it fit then. Im thinking it might be the wrong fender. Are 70 71 72 the same for the cuda. A pass fender from Cross Canada is 1038 dollars plus paint an install. I hope im just missing something Thanks for any help

I "think" a 71 fender would fit (one w/o the gills) but due to the differences in the grilles there might be some issues in that area (which might be what you are seeing). 72-74 fenders would bolt up but the marker lights are completely different whereas I believe the 70 and 71 used the same marker lights.

Generally, there is a lot of adjustment in the fenders, your issue with the grille might be a result of the fender adjustment. The antenna hole can be worked with/around if necessary.

The fender is all lined up nice with the hood I don't think u can move it much with it bolted to the rad cradle an the part in front of the hood. I don't know im going to have the body guy come out an look. I just paid the 17000 dollars so I will see what they say Thanks

Good luck, hope it works out for you. I personally have never tried to put a 71 fender on a 70 so I dont know what issues that might cause or if that is what you are seeing.

I don't know what it was orginally but I do know the bodyshop filled something in on it. It looks the same as the drivers fender but who knows . While I got u do u know what all the 3 amp fuse runs. I cant get my heat an oil pressure gauges to work my fuel gaguge works I know there all 5 or 6 volt. Im thinking maybe a ground the sending unit are in a aluminum  intake Thanks

Ok, lets break this up a little for clarity.

1. you need to ask the body shop what they filled in. As you probably know the 72-74 fenders have a completely different side marker and while one of those fenders could be made to work by changing out the side marker, it would require some work.

2. what 3 amp fuse are you talking about? One in the fuse box itself?

3. you lost me on the sending unit and aluminum comment. What is aluminum?

It was the side marker they changedso it probably was a 72 fender. The 3 amp fuse in the fuse box. Send units that screw into the intake for ur oil and temp gauges. Aluminum is a edelbrock intake Thanks

Did you download the manual or get one?

Well if they changed over a 72-74 fender then that could be your problem. Should have mocked up the grille first.

The 3 amp fuse is for the instrument lights.

I have run many aluminum intakes and never had an issue with the sending unit working unless it was bad unto itself, in other words the intake isn't your issue.
