My 59 CC-925 came with a butterfly hood and fiberglass fenders as far as we can tell.  Long story short I have most of the parts for a butterfly hood assembly.  I am missing lights, turn signals, the passenger side metal fender and probably a few bits and pieces.  I am not sure what year it came from.  It has the metal crowned fenders.  The truck it is from does not have a frame drop in it like my 59 does.  I seem to remember something about the hood length changing.  I do have the grill and radiator assemblies as well.  If I were to install what I have with the metal fenders, will it work?  If it turns into a bridge too far to make this work I will probably sell or trade of the parts for other stuff I need.  Grill is in pretty good shape, the surround doesn't appear dented and has some rust on one side but nothing serious.

Completly different set up for the 59 from what you have.

I can't get anymore out of it, I've got both sticks hot clear up to the knobs allready.

We were suspicious when we saw the fiberglass fender the owner referred to was a copy of the traditional metal crowned fender and not a 59 fender.  Owner had told us it was a 59 so I thought I was onto something.  Looks like she will remain a faux wide hood for now.  Going to start the paint project next week sometime.

FYI, if you do end up going the butterfly route, the repro Guide 682-C headlights available on eBay are comparable in quality (or better) to the repro Dietz Peterbilt style headlamps that have been available for some time now.  I convinced Mike to use a set of them on the green KW project instead of trying to ressurect the old Guides.  He had a mystery wiring problem that was finally tracked down to a bad ground.  Other than that, they went on out of the box and look good.

Cut and paste Of Hank's post and pics from Kevins's roadkill thread, at Kevin's request.

Great find Kevin even though the parts won't fit your truck. My brothers and I just started to work on our 1960 CG 925 that should be the same as yours here are some pictures so you can view the parts you are looking for.



Notice my brother took of the left side fender because it was cracked and we are getting it repaired also we are putting dual air cleaners.

The grille you got won't fit at all. It should be a stamped grille.



The radiator wont fit eiter the top tank should have this angle and notice one hinge in the 900 series butterfly hood as oppose to the one you got.

The front of my frame definitely has that same configuration.

Kevin tilt hood conversion on your 1959 was defently done right. The hangers bolt on and off. They must have changed the radiator also. Here are a birds eye view of the early 1950s butterfly hood with the late 50s early 60s comparison.
