What rear flares are these and what would they be worth

They are 100% steel. I’m being told these are 8” rs flares?!?!

They look like RS flares to me based on the gentler radius at the fender lip and "roundness" of the shoulder. SC flares have a sharper fender crown edge and flare out straighter. There is a set of original RS flares on this site FS for $2000 right now with part number to prove it.

73 OEM RS flares

A quick way to tell is the lip. SC have a consistent lip while RS the lip is larger in the center and tapers to the edges.

They look wider than an RS flair, which makes me think they might be custom or cut down 930 flares.

Those are cut down Turbo flares Jim. I may be interested in them.

I didn't want to post on his thread to hurt his sale but those flares are $730 at Sun_set.

Upon closer look, I think you may be right - I first thought "wide for RS but maybe someone puffed them a bit before welding"; then thought maybe "ST" flares. Cut down Turbo does make sense.

Restoration Design Inc. | Fender Flares ST, rear pair

These appear to be 9” ST flares

I don’t know if this means anything but rear wheels are 8” with 3/4” spacers

Yes, he's asking $2000 for 2 vs. $1460 for 2.

I think Chris has it right, the pics in this thread, the flare to lip is more rounded than on a Turbo flare.
