Bill, I have no idea as to why the OO ordered the car with blackwalls. I will say this, those blackwall firestone steel radials are as rare as hens teeth. I took them off right after the photoshoot because I am afraid of the belts separating. It has a set of white lettered GY steelgards currently. Both sets of wheels/tires go with the car. Someone will be getting one heck of a car.

Found this old Polaroid of the car at Bloomington back in the day.


I think that is Bill S's 402/4 speed Monte in the background and maybe the fender of Jan's 66 on the right? Thinking this was mid 80's???


Sorry for the non rotated photo - it was upright when scanned......
