I recently picked up a 1964 Ford Falcon 289 Futura.  It was the grandfather's then my uncle's, and now mine.

It's been sitting for about 20 years and thus needs a new everything--Starting with wheels and tires.  

I'm looking for some Super lite/ mini lite style or torq-thrust style wheels in a 15" diameter.  5 lug.

If you have anything you'd be willing to sale or know where a set are, please let me know.

Thanks

You might want to list your location, and definitely should remove your email address.

918 area code is Tulsa.  Not that area code means much these days

Rims are SN95 mustang with 1" spacer and a little clearance grinding on the back edge of the front UCA:

I made the adapters to run s197 GT front brakes. I probably still have the dimensions for those brackets around here somewhere...

I'd dig those dimensions, if you have 'em.

Yes,  located in Tulsa.  

 

Angrycorvair,  those are rad.  What's involved in fitting them and the S197 brakes, how do you like them, and are those fitting under 15" wheels?

Rad Mustang!  Great looking car!  Yeah,  if you have those dimensions for those brackets I'd love to have them.

Great looking wheels if only you were a little closer!

S197 V6 brakes require 16" rim

S197 GT brakes require 17" rim

I'll look for the dimensions this weekend

On this project we used SN95 GT rims plus 1" spacers. S197 GT rims would have required 2" spacers.

Are those rallyX tires? From Datsaniti?
