    Default Electra 69: Lost Fender skirt

    I recently bought a 69 Electra with a missing driver side fender skirt.
    My question: does a 69 Wildcat/Le Sabre can fit?
    Or do you know one for sale, the 70 fits but the bottom molding is different, I am only looking for a 69.
    Thanks

    One more question: Does a 69 Wildcat Le Sabre fender skirt is exactly identical to an Electra one?

    Only the '69 Electra came with skirts. Wildcats only had skirts in '67 and '68 and Le Sabres never came with skirts

    Ok, thank you Nailhead for looking, but my question about the Wildcat/Le sabre is because of that Ebay fender skirt for sale: http://www.ebay.fr/itm/221904283913?...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
    So I keep on looking for a driver side one.

    A 69 Electra coupe just showed up at the West side El Paso U pull. It had one skirt loose in the trunk. PM if interested, I have pics of car on my cell phone.

    Skirt still w/ 69 Electra turned out to be R side. L one must have been destroyed in the LR hit that brought the car into the yard. Did buy the chrome strip off it, (R skirt) it is near perfect, w/o pits or damage. Front wheelhousing moldings are also near perfect. Skirt itself had some "modifications" - weld slop and cuts, so I left it in the trunk.
