    Uh ... dunno about your wheels, but mine are 16-inch International truck wheels. Are yours 15s or 16s? (Nice shoebox, btw.)

    Thanks for the compliment. I'm so far into this thing that all I see is how f***-ed up it is, but yeah, someday I'd like to have a nice car!

    As for the engine, it's a 350.

  8. I just kind of like the look of the black wheels with whitewalls. Here are a couple of mine.

    You would probably liked the white rolls and pleats with black piping, too. The paint was '56 Chevy (Sierra Gold, I think) - kind of a copper color. Typical So-Cal style of the time.

    I'm betting that if you could take an actual count you would fine that black wheels would outnumber red ones.

    Original wheels for '49 1/2 T in excellent shape, original striping, I cleaned them up and hit them with flat rustoleum out of a can. Will gently touch up the stripes where needed, not too much though.

    Thanks, man. I'd have it running this summer, except I lost my job--so right now I'm just focusing on getting the front clip back on. It'll probably get running next summer. That's my hope, anyway.

    I has originally painted the wheels on my T Coupe red but after 1 summer of driving I decided to change to black and the difference is incredible. Its looks much better plus it just looks older as well.
     
  26. Here is a pic I've posted many times. Maybe if I'd quit working on all my other stuff, and spent an aftertoon on the Wagon, I could drive it around and take some new ones!
