68 Impala fenders

Can anyone point me in the right direction in finding reproduced front fenders for my 1968 Impala. Ive got two sets, one set looks like they were used in a demo derby and the other is rusted to a point Im concerned about the amount of work required to patch it. Thinking that if I can just find some new that would save me a lot of time and energy. Car is getting all around disc brakes, modern suspension and a 454 so originality is not a huge concern for me. Thanks in advance.

I didn't do an extensive search, but from what I did find nobody re-manufactures front fenders for the 68 Impala. The aftermarket just doesn't seem to be looking into these cars very extensively. Now with that said I can remember 10 years or so ago you couldn't find anything for 65-66 Impalas and those parts are now starting to get aftermarket attention. Your best place is probably a place like Southeastchevyparts.com , but even they are listed as sold out.

Right, no reproduced '68 Fenders yet. And in these uncertain times, I wouldn't expect to see any anytime soon. There may be some Fiberglass ones out there, but I would say that they would pale in comparison.

Good used would be your best bet. I sold my last good one a few years ago. Try Desert Valley Auto Parts in AZ or similar yards with dry weather conditions.
