I think they would look fine. I'm doing the same thing on my '23, only different. Mine will hug the tire and be connected to the spindles/rear axle. I'm using a spare tire ring off of a later(mid '30's) car.

I would need a photo of your speedster to compare to in order to have a valid opinion. I tend to prefer speedsters be fenderless. One of the boat-tail roadsters I had did have fenders and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Some speedsters look great with fenders. Some do not.

Fritz,

Post a photo of your speedster and I'll photoshop fenders on it.

I think they look good on a bodied speedster like the provided photo. I don't believe they would look very good or be of any real function for an opened bodied speedster. Course keep in mind, the beauty of the speedster is it is your own creation. Go to Northwest Vintage Speedster web site. There is at least one car that is set up the way you are talking.

Those appear to be Mercury fenders, Ralph.

Also from the Tulsa website:

Almost anyone can appear at the Model T Garage. Here is Fred Houston with Jim Roof, grandson of Robert M. Roof

Thats not the right link.
Go to "What we do" on that website.
There is a picture of a car with those fenders at the bottom.
