Default atlas 15x6 wheels

Does anyone have any good close up front and rear pictures of an Atlas 15x6 wheel as used on Yenko cars? I've got a 15x6 wheel with no markings at all that looks an awful lot like the few pictures I've found of Atlas wheels. Does not look to be E-T, American, etc., and the back side of the spokes have no webbing.

Sent you a message, I have some nice pictures of a original wheel. I will try to post later. It sounds like you may have one by some of the description you posted.

The wheel I have looks very similar, but the spokes appear to be machined to clear C2 calipers (or 67-68 two-piston calipers). It's a 15x6 w/ 3" backspace. Can anyone tell me who made this wheel? Pictures below.

Yes - I noticed that these do not seem to be exactly the same as Atlas wheels because of the design of the inside spoke pattern. The clearance cut on the spokes does not seem to be a backyard hack job, but I agree that this wheel does not look like the safest design.

So can anyone tell me who made this wheel? I'm not finding much on the internet, but I did see that someone else had two identical wheels for sale a while back (not identified).
