15" rims, 4-1/2" back space, 6-1/2 to 7 wide, P235R/75-15's...

Mr. Commando1--

Think it might be possible to sneak a 255/70 R15 in there? I would like to do that on my '68. It is just slightly taller than the 235/75.

Dodgeboy--

Fantastic car and sorry to read about your dad. What a great tribute.

does that work on all four corners? or is that just for the rear?

Not sure. I play it wise by staying stock....
NEVER saw any kind of modification that didn't cause a problem elsewhere. Major or minor.
I'm the lone conservative here.....
You need to talk to Ross.

Yes that is Medium Copper, it is the same color of my 67 Barracuda.

c2c fabrication. i trimmed it down to only replace the heavily rusted areas.

I still say these are better than nothing rust repair pieces, just one step above raw stock.

The various panel impressions are not as defined as original, for a floor pan this might work, in a trunk where it may be seen? For the money I’d just put raw stock in.

so i just ordered a power disc brake kit. so i figured i will need a new set of wheels to go with it since the stock ones are 14's. I would like to run a 15 x8 if possible. I would like a wider rear set of tires. will 255/70's fit, i see some one said they heard that someone had some rubbing? can any one confirm this? what backspacing works best? or would it be better to run 15 x 7's?

So after a year of having the car down because I hated the way the brakes were. I decided I needed to put something better on, and it arrived today!! Hello wilwood 6 piston brake kit. I got 12.19" drilled and slotted kit. It should match the master I put on over winter. I will post updates when I start installation, just need new wheels now.

Love the 67! I have a 67 Sport Fury Fast Top. Named after my late father-in-law, Walter. Looks to be the same color as well.

Sorry to hear about your dad. Mine has been gone for 12 years now and I miss him everyday. That is a beautiful 67 formal roof Fury III. I love the color combination & the Magnum 500 wheels painted body color is a great look with the solid raised white letter tires. Thanks for sharing the pics.
