    Hey Gary, remember that the '69 Fury I Pursuit is sitting on Coopers, check 'em out there and see if you like them as they sit - P225/70R15 and P275/60R15, all on 15 x 7" size rims. Similar sizes in the Polyglas range are available as repros - F70-15 and L60-15 (equates to P215/70R15 and P285/60 R15 sizes respectively I believe).

    Get some Road Wheels widened to 8" for the rear (bear in mind what happened with mine) and some factory 7" wide versions (which I have not been able to source for the life of me. Derek, do these really really exist from the factory??? If so, models and years please!)

    Thanks Derek, was actually in touch with that AKH lad previously (quite a while back now that I think of it). Bit pricey? But hey, he does have those rare wheels after all....

    Because of the incorrect trim ring

    Sorry, not to hi-jack your thread, but I see these wheels on a '71 Chally that look very much like 71 C-Body Road wheels. Isn't that what came stock on the '71 Sport Fury GT?

    No....that's a chrome wheel.... The 71 GT uses a wide trim ring

    Thought it was a shot in the dark, but you never know what people have done to their cars in 45 years.

    Thanks for thinking of us my friend, even though it didn't pan out this time, no one knows what may turn up!

    The 1970 GT had 666 cars built i think. I hope you aren't religious. ;)
