The wheel pictured at top is from a 1941 - 46 Chev Truck 16 x 6 with 6 lug BP The car in the photo is the Marvin E Whiteman Track T Roadster which ran 143.76 MPH in the C modified Class at Bonneville in 1950 I have been trying to figure out the origin of the rear rims on the Whiteman Roadster but to date without much success. When I spoke with Marvin Whiteman sometime ago he said he ran Firestone Indy Tires on the rear and thought the rim size was 16 inch ( not 18 inch as has been suggested ) but he could not remember the origin of the rear rims. The 41 - 46 Chevy rim pictured might be a clue as to the origin of the wheels on the Whiteman roadster as they appear to have a similar style reversed rim but with Ford centres. I presume the Chevy wheels were made by Kelsey Hayes and if so perhaps they made a similar wheel in period for Light Duty Ford Trucks. Does anyone know of a Ford Light duty truck wheel that is similar to the 41 -46 Chevy truck wheel in the photo? However - Whiteman may have used a Chevy truck rim hoop with Ford Centres on his roadster. I would appreciate if anyone can shed light on this subject!
