I've decided not to put 14" whee;s on my 1966 Corsa, so I have a couple of things available if anyone is interested:
* Four (4) 14" wheels with the standard 5-bolt pattern. The offset will fit a Corvair hub nicely. It will also fit the larger cars in the Chevrolet line. These are the wider wheels from the Chevrolet station wagons of the mid-60's. I had planned to use them as drivers with a lower-profile tires, either a 195- or 205-70.
These have all been blasted and powder-coated satin black. They have never had a tire mounted to them.
Years ago I had a set of these on a turbo coupe, and handling was greatly improved using the wider/lower profile tire.
It costs about $45/wheel to have the recoating done. That's what I want -- $180 for the set of four. Shipping would be extra.
* Four (4) 14" wire wheel covers with the 3-bar spinner. One has some rim rash, but is otherwise in good condition. The others are used but presentable. One extra 3-bar spinner is included. I want $200 for the set plus shipping.
Take all for $350 plus shipping. I can handle local pickup.
From ten feet away, the only real difference on a Corvair is the use of a wider tire than the originals.
If you are doing any other mid-60's Chevrolet from Impala to Chevy II, these are correct.

Same car I bought in 1/68 the night before I went to Viet Nam he second time. Got it back in 8/15. Plan its first public runout come July.
