They are $310.00 each. I just bought a set of 4 on eBay with a little less than 700 miles on them for $670.00

      I am currently restoring an 05C Norwood Z/28  JL8 with an original SC 200 Spare. I don't have any info as to whether the JL8 option had anything to do with tire selection. I would be interested if anyone has any documentation on the subject.

Which tire was installed in production on a Z/28 or COPO 9737 was purely random. Both were stocked in assembly. The only requirement mentioned in the assembly manual was that all had to match. Goodyear WTGT was the predominant brand; Firestone SC 200 seems to be secondary. A friend bought one of the last '69 Z/28s built; had SC200s.

Having been around in those days I know that Goodyear was by far a more popular choice as a performance tire. Not at all unusual for a Z/28 buyer to request a wheel swap with another car in stock to get Goodyears.

I think it was around 1970 that I sat a never ran SC200 on a rally wheel to the curb for the trash man to take. I think it was the spare out of my HO Z that I did not think i needed any more. Was not worth keeping at the time. lol
