Front 15 x 3.5 Rims w/ Pro Trac 560-15 tires (1.625 BS)
Rear 15 x 8.5 Rims w/ Pro Trac 275/60/15 (4-7/8 BS)

I rough fit these on the 68 last night but they will need a little help. Tires clear on the inside rear but the rim is in contact with the lower shock bolt and nut of the trac bar. I'm going to try a .250 spacer on it today or may end up relocating the shock mount as a proper fix. Front inside wheel is also contacting the caliper so a spacer will be added to see if that helps fit the wheels over 4 piston fronts?

I tried these on the 68 purely for S&G's, but in fairness I bought these for the 69 car. I'll try fitting them on the green car later since I am waiting on some vintage Hurst air shocks arriving in the next week. Once those are here an mounted up, I'll try the front and rears to see if they need help to clearance the lower shock mounts on the older Lakewood J Bars. These wheels should fit the 69 fronts with the single piston calipers.

I ran those mufflers on the 68 I had with the 94 LT1 in it and most people couldn't believe the car was EFI. It sounded very similar at idle and was really mellow while cruising.

Graeme, don't buy any spacers; I have a complete set that should be just what the doctor ordered. I'm out of town until July 11.

I tried a set of .250 and .375 spacers earlier today and neither are the answer. I need to drill the shock mount tab and relocate the shock about 1" inward if I want to use these wheels on the 68. No rush on anything here Dave.

Enjoy your lake time. (I'm Jealous)

Spent the last couple hours fixing this thread, deleting all the old Photobucket links and updating all the pictures with repaired links to another photo hosting site. Helps clean up the forums now that the greedy a-holes at PB have held so many users ransom for 3rd party links. They can shove their services as I have found a better host for photos.

On the car front...things are all finished up now and the new engine and transmission are broken in nicely. Feel free to click on any of the pictures in this thread to see the larger image files in high def.

A little update for the 68. I pulled the old motor out of it last year and put a fresh 360 solid roller motor in it for the summer. Great build that made some great power but a little too radical for long highway cruises. Being that the bulk of my cruising involves highway runs to and from neighboring towns, I've decided to go back to a hydraulic cam to put less load on the valve train.

I took the old 350 that was in there for about 30 years and freshened it with a balanced assembly using a forged 1182 crank, pink rods, and the old TRW 11:1 slugs with new rings and bearings. The old 291 heads were treated to a little port & polish work while screw in studs and guides were added with Comp Magnum rockers. I used a Crower 00471 Hydraulic Roller for this build and it's still lumpy enough for the folks who like bigger cams but responsive enough to get this little 4 gear cruiser moving along.

I ran the motor in this week and my good friend Mike Thorpe came over last night so we could adjust the adjust the valve train, tune the carb in a little bit and do a few checks during it's second run. Mike's now rebuilding the 4053DZ carb that used to top this 610 intake and that will be added to the motor once it's installed back into the car. No leaks or issues with this hot little small block, so the next move is to swap it back into the 68. This one should make an honest 425 horsepower while being a bit more forgiving on valve train parts with longer distance cruises.

I can't get the new site software to display the little run video I made last night so the above link is the best I can do for now.

Fathers Day progress.

Installed the freshened 355 motor back into the 68 yesterday along with the rebuilt M22 that came out of it last year. Kept the scatter shield and Hays clutch since both were new last year. I then pulled the vacuum pump out hoping this cam won't need it but that is still to be tested since this new Crower cam is pretty healthy too. I did leave the MSD 6 Digital ignition in it since most of it was hidden and I feel the new motor will benefit from a good ignition system.

My friend Mike rebuilt the DZ carb last week and I had the 610 intake tumbled so everything looks good and clean now. Added the scripted valve covers to help clear the roller rockers and a high flow water Edelbrock pump to keep things cool. Should make a great little driver once again and now it'll be capable of some long distance hauls. Tonight I'll button up the carb, plumb the coolant and it's ready to roll once again.

Now to rest my back for a day or two.
