IS that suppose to accommodate the fast hitch crank, is that why it is cut?

I think it was for ease of getting on and off. Here it is in the parts book

They should have done that to ALL the lowboys
They are harder to get on than a tall cub with that fender moved forward with the rotated final.
I have had 3 lowboys-hated each one because they are so hard to get on.

A sickle bar makes a great step to get on a Low Boy

Must've only been on the very last ones... My 1966 had two full fenders.

My "Last known Ser. # '68 model had 2 full fenders

The funky drawing notwithstanding, that page of the parts book shows the same part number right and left. In the absence of some other solid proof, I believe that fender was modified.

I agree with Jim. From working in a manufacturing facility during my working career, if that fender is cut completely straight from top to bottom it's probably done from someone at a shop or home. The IH factory would have stamped the sheet metal to the proper size, then placed that sheet in the same press as a normal fender. Boss, do you have any pictures from the other side focused on the cut??
I'll guarantee I could scribe some lines and cut a fender off to duplicate yours(and you couldn't tell them apart). If someone would scale a picture to resemble your fender, you'd see a drastic difference than the poorly drawn manual pic.

I have personally seen this fender up close and I can tell you if it was back yard made it's one heck of a job. Looked good enough to be a factory/dealer done modification to me. The truth may never be known unless there are more out there....

so are you saying the page out of the manual isn't genuine?

Not only to back up these recent pictures, but I done a good search thru yahoo images of lowboy cubs and sure enough I came across a good handful in just a few minutes of looking. Some were round nose lowboys and some square nose. However there were lots on there with full fenders these fenders were put on them from a factory when built.
