I'd say it's pretty rare but it will also be tough finding the right person that needs it. I sold a full set of those in decent driver condition on ebay about 10 years ago for around $250. I was...

When I was looking for wheels for my 65 I'm pretty sure I called Cruzin Concepts and asked about those wheels. If I remember correctly, the 17x8's were 4.5" backspacing. I had the same concern...

I say go for the wheels and enjoy the car you have. Once your baby girl gets here, you won't believe how little free time you have. I know I sure didn't grasp that concept until my first one came...

They're not the same shape. The 69 grille is more "V" shaped while the 65 grille is flatter. I think the 69 grille also tilts forward a lot more than the 65. They make billet grilles for 65-66...

Here's a guy searching for his car he sold years ago. I don't know why he felt the need to describe how the car aquired some paint damage.

No, they're actually Coys C-55's. They look identical to the MB Old Schools except the Coys have hidden valve stems.

Mine's a 65, not a 69, but it is painted Alcapulco Blue. Everybody who looked at the paint mixed in the can thought I was crazy for wanting it that color. However, once it went on the car they...

If you want 17x8's and don't want to worry about rubbing or rolling fender lips, I would suggest 4.75" backspacing. That's what I have on the rear of my 65 with 245/45 tires. Even at that, my rear...

Those appear to be '66 Mustang Styled-Steel wheels.

The '65 Styled-Steel wheels look similar, but they're all chrome with no trim-ring. 67's look almost identical to 66's but they have a notch...

Is it just me or in the bottom picture (the one of the front of the engine) do the heads look like they're not sitting flush on the block? Looks like the gap gets wider from the exhaust side to the...

At first glance I thought $10,000 was way high. But factor in the metal work that a convertible under $5k is going to need and this car doesn't look as bad at $10k if it is as solid as it appears. ...

I think the "raised engine mounts" that you're looking for are the '66 style V8 engine mounts, which you should already have if your car is a factory '66 V8 car. The V8 engine mounts for '65...

I never thought about that. They're supposed to be 4.75" BS, but they do make the same wheel with 4.5" BS. I don't think that's the problem but it would be an easy check. I noticed the rear...

Rearend is not centered in 65 coupe

My rearend is not exactly centered in my 65 coupe. It's never been an issue until I put 17x8's with 245/45/17 tires on the back. Now the one side that sticks out farther rubs the fender lip a...

Oak, very sharp car. Just curious, what wheels are those? I can tell they're not late model Bullits, the lip is too deep and I can see a flange for the center caps. They don't look like painted...

The way the cars were originally wired, the parking lamps go off when the headlights come on. I personally wished they stayed on with the headlights. It looks better IMO.

Good point. I'll check it close before I just jump in and start cutting the springs. My old 14" wheels/tires were about an inch taller than my new tires on the front and I never had any rubbing...
