If you turn up a pair of 5/3/68's and  you pass on them, I would be interested :)

I know of a set of four DF wheels that were removed from the same car in 1979.  All four are dated 7-16-68, if anyone is interested.

Here's one for $1000.00...

It appears to be a service replacement part.

Have 4 or 5 spare DF wheels and for sure some of them are May dates as that was a common month to find. Will have to look at that..

Might be the same wheel I looked at Carlisle that the guy wanted $1000 for. I purchased two large font DF wheels on ebay last year. One was $175 and the other was a buy it now for $145 and both are excellent condition. Hard to find but they are out there and can be found for reasonable amounts. I have not seen any of these wheels bringing the money they were a few years ago.

I had to step up big time also for a pair of the big upside down DF wheels.They are for my 12d 68 z.Very hard to find. Took some pics of the dates before I installed the tires. When it comes to wheels rust pits are usually in hard to reach areas and tough to repair . Buy the best condition ones you can find even if they are expensive.  John  p.s. glad to see luv2sixty69 post  that guy has alot of knowledge!

I need one more K19 DF wheel with the 1 1/8 wide slots. Just one! I aquired three of them over the past 2 years for an average of $90 each. I like the 69 dated replacements because the prices are usually reasonable and I'm not putting them on a numbers Z28. Anyone got one of these with the wide slots they can part with? Thanks!

Paul, That wheel on Ebay has the narrow 1" slots. I have 1 of those I'm going to use as a temporary 4th wheel untill I find one more with the 1 1/8" wide slots. Truth is, probably won't be able to tell the difference once the trim ring is on but I'm just being picky.  :) Thanks for lookin!

John, I have one K19 wheel that can go. Long story on how I got it but someone tried to doctor it by hiding the coding. You can send me a PM.

Rodent (Jim) did not follow up on that but will check it out this weekend. Will send you a PM after I check.
