8MG dated Fomoco wheel
« on: August 20, 2016, 11:14:45 PM »
Picked up a tire/wheel to use as a roller today, and here's what I found when I cleaned it up. Looks like it had a full wheel cover by the gouges on the outside of the rim.  4 nubs unlike the 3 on my Mustang and Fairlane wheels.

4 Nubs is the norm on 1968-Later wheels. Date code is July, 1968. That wheel design started in 68, although I have seen early 68 wheels with the preceding design. That is a really nice looking wheel. Must have been the trunk spare.

Thanks for that info!   ;)
