So sooner or later I’ll ad the story of the Galaxie…Â I named Darling Nikki.Â This car has been a total LOVE/HATE story from the start.
I just wanted to post on some wheels…Â The wheels I have on the car are NOS chrome reverse from the sixties with wide whites…Â Â The only thing that bugs me is that the wide whites are’ntÂ so traditional…Â It needs a nice pair of skinny white wall bias-Â But I really dig the chrome wheels on a black car.
What I came across is a full set of 1965 FENTON’s.
Fenton made some cool looking wheels, aluminum centers and chrome outers, a lot like Rader’s that were sold at the same time.Â These are 15×5.5 which is a pretty hard size to find in nice shape in any sixties wheel.Â 14’s were really popular during this era-
SO…Â I need to get these Fenton’s cleaned up, buffed out, centers repainted and mounted up with some nice skinny white wall bias- and we’ll see how they look on the galaxie.
Here they are:
-a little before’n after…
