Default Fender Question Flxible Buick

A question for all the Buick gurus out there. Would the rear fenders on a 49 Flxible Buick Ambulance be stock Series 70 or modified by Flxible? The ones I have are in pretty poor shape and I am trying to decide on repair or replace.

They are two door fenders cut at the front by Fixible with a small part on the side door and the balance as the rear fender. I have no knowledge of the modification . Perhaps someone may have a fender off they can photo the inside perhaps the mod is not extensive.

You best bet unless you have a similer doner car is repair. That old iron is thick and fairly easy to work. If you remove it.
