Those look like very nice wheels. Just be sure that the back spacing is OK for your car and that they will fit around whatever brakes you have.

Then I have the best of the two worlds, handsome rims and modern tires

I will try to post a link from the rims.

hello,
am I wrong when I say they look like 18 "cobra wheels?
But it is not a bad look at all.

As I see it, there's two ways to build a Cobra.

1-old school with a FE or small blk Ford. 15" wheels & stuffing the wheel well with tire.

1- modern hot rod with a higher tech computerized 385 series or small blk and 17"-20" stuffing the wheel wells with wheel, not tire.

There's nothing with either, but I prefer old school "tough" looking Cobra over the "hot rod".

I went with the half polished (the full polished is too bright)15" wheels from Team 3, with their spinners and lug covers, which look great.

If I ever bought new wheels, I'd get their ET Trigo 427, as I like the flatter outer section.

ET Wheels by Team III Wheels

They now have them in 18".

With the 17" (+) make sure the wheels won't touch the brake calipers !

Yes, search "Superformance Brock Coupe" for pictures. Ignore the wheels on the red coupe that is Peter Brock's car, he has his own custom wheels on the car.

Hi all,


A small update on the project.
The engine decision is over.
My engine builder called me a while ago about a Ford 302 that was up for sale.
As it turned out it was a Dart block, but instead of a 302 itís a 363.
It was the spare engine of a drag racing team.
That engine ran on ethanol because of the compression ratio.
So it has been disassembled and rebuild for pump gas.
I hope to post some pictures
Greetings
