Hi Dave,
This one is a '56, plain fenders, dimensions are 8"w x 26"l. pics below
The numbers on this one are stamped into the top of the tube, just before the forward bend to the tongue, 1st pic
good luck-
Eric

Well I found a pair of fenders on offer up!

Got them home, and they seem not fit. They may be from an earlier one with a tubular frame.

Does anyone know how the later box frame trailers mount the fenders?

I may have some early plain fenders for sale.

I think you have the correct fenders but as you state the 3 L tab brackets are how they are mounted to my '56. On my '60's they mount using 2 holes through the back flange of the fender. Above and behind each tire you should see two holes between the leaf spring brackets that go through the channel. Here are some pictures of a set up I had with one missing fender. looks like the same as you purchased without the 3 "L"s. but if you want to sell them, let me know. thx
