Tony:

What are you doing with one?

Is that the one Jack left at the body shop? /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/devilgrin.gif

No, the PO of my '63 Midget put one on it when he did the custom dash...I have it along with the mounting stuff now that we've gone back to an original setup...here's a photo before I disassembled my car:

I have a new 14" Touristr Trophy wheel for it, Jack....this one is a 15" period aftermarket wheel.

Is that a Les Leston wheel?
It would have a "LL" at the bottom of the bottom spoke.
they're worth quite a bit.
Like This for example. Or This.
Here's mine before the restoration.
YEP!!! That's what it is!!

...& if I polish the spokes, its every bit as nice as the 1st one you showed that's on eBay!!

WOW!! Never imagined its worth that much! Maybe I'll sell my new Tourist Trophy & put this one back on!! $400....WOW!!

I've always liked that wheel - only reason I was changing is to get a smaller 14" diameter to give me more room in this little car!

I was going to suggest that - but didn't want to go there.

BTW I have a 14" wheel in mine.
