Came off a 1963 Nova. 14x7's with burn-em-up tires... but the price is right.

Hes getting measurements for me in the morning. If it works out, those will be mine. :) :) :) :)

Purchased a set brand new in the early 80's for my 61 Olds bubble top.
Fits bolt patterns 4.5 (Mopar, Ford) 4.75 (Most GM) 5.0 (Large Olds, Buick, Pontiac, Full size trucks & Vans)

You will need center drilled washers and lug nuts. (No Offset!)

You'll want the Cragar washers and nuts, not E-T

The Cragrs use a thick chrome washer, E-Ts are way different, and have a recess for the washer

All the above is correct. Oval holes are unilug, and you need the correct centered washers and Cragar lug nuts.

The trick is getting them bolted on. I used to have them on my 68 Cougar in the 80s. I would get one started through the hole, then start a second and rotate the wheel around as I was tightening until the lug went through the wheel. Once two are good and started the other three go in super easy.

I didn't have much luck with lug centric wheels on mine. I had put the SS1s off the 67 on the Pig for a hot minute, and it vibrated like crazy as lq4 said. I'm hub cenric on these cars from here on out!
