That was a killer deal! Hope I see it around.
Not sure. I've personally never seen one wider than 7", and 15" in any width are pretty hard to come by.
Drag Mags are basically a 10 spoke; i.e. note “hollow” main spoke. Indy 500 Speed Wheels are 5 spoke (note solid black painted area between...
I'm adding @Tom davison and his vast knowledge of '60s KC area car stuff/
Mr. Eibner's '32 was rightfully the star of the Des Moines show in 1956. Pages posted by Stephen Day on FB.
don’t go ‘round hungry
I’d sure like to see the rest of this car.
The spindle mount fronts appear to be American 12 spokes, yes magnesium.
Rears, I’m guessing US Indy but could be Ansen/Western or any number of...
The infamous Rod and Custom “beater” issue will be 50 years old later this year. All depends on one’s definition of the term I guess.
Bump with a fresh 15x10.
I like the way the car sits and looks now! And the pinkish wheels should go great with the brown. Although I really liked the gold wheels on this...
I dig wagons and that Plymouth woody 20 seconds in is cool! Shortly followed by a Plymouth Suburban headed the other way. Not as exciting as...

That thing is so wicked! And seeing it parked by the Orange Crate! I thought Squeak was getting ready to do a refresh on it. Hope it ends up in...
Man that sounds cool! Any photos of it around before it got ruined?
So damn sweet! And another vote for fixing what's needed and keeping it as is!
