Default Early Model Guards/Fenders

Hey Guys,
I have a 1873 Super Beetle (an aussie one, dunno if this makes a difference or not) and i am wondering if the early model fenders/guards will fit? I am looking at doing a cruiser/lowrider style bug and i much prefer the old guards. So when i mean early i mean like 50's early 60's.
Thanks heaps for your help guys!

Wow! For a bug that old, you should restore it to it's original condition. Those 1800's bugs just aren't as common as they used to be.

From what I remember supers and bugs in "73 ONLY"(you will see they bolth have their own catigory in all parts catilogs for certian things) use a longer rear and front fenders to compinsate for the body being longer, but the distance between the fenders allow the running boards to be the universal. Rear fender guards are universal, but the front fender is not... there is a few places that make custom set ups for the super, but they are insainely priced.

You could pick up a set of fiberglass fenders from Creative Car Craft that use the early lights. Some of the best fiberglass parts made.
