Default VERY cool find!

A very cool market place find, a pair of original Hurst wheels on the original Goodyear Wide Tread F70 X 14 tires! I bought them from the ORIGINAL owner in Elmwood Park, IL. He bought them for his 67 GTO he bought new. Tires were shown once at the Autoshow on Navy Pier in 1969 (he still had the plaque!). His garage was like a museum and was stuffed with cars. He had the original 58 Corvette Gasser he has owned since 1968 among other cars. Not sure what Iím gonna do with the Hurst wheels but they are cool!
