1967 NOS 14" Trim Rings C7ZZ-1210-A problems
« on: May 22, 2017, 09:07:27 AM »
I recently purchased yet ANOTHER set of NOS 14" Trim Rings C7ZZ-1210-A and once again received the narrower, 66 version. At least these had the stickers & boxes wihout any scratches or scrapes. These are claimed by the seller to have been in their possession since new in 1997 and ONLY opened for pictures prior to listing  ::)  :-\ Since these even had the correct paper stickers on them and do look to be what came in the boxes I received, I am beginning to have questions about what Ford may have been selling in the later days of carrying them.

So, is this simply yet another issue of Ford consolidated the inventory to a single Service part number? I do not have enough MPC's to investigate this.

You also might search out (hopefully someone has a few copies) of the O S & Y  manuals. These list the substitutions, one part number for another, Ford did through the years.

Have one or two somewhere but at the moment have no idea where they are packed away :(

Richard, I did some research posted here:

John, did you notice a height difference in the ink-stamped trim ring vs. the paper tag label ring? (Set them side-by-side on the table)

Can do when I get the used ones back from the polisher.  He claims to be able to do the brushed finish so I have him doing a 68 version also.

Another set of the white label C7ZZ-1210-A version showed up for sale on the Bay yesterday and like other versions found in recent years, only stand 2-inches tall (same as the C6ZZ versions)...it looks as though the later Service Parts may indeed have been the same parts, packaged under BOTH service part numbers.

I'm still searching for more of the "ink stamped" versions that are 2-1/4" tall...

UPDATE: This set I saw on eBay is already gone now...

I just installed a set of NOS rings on a 67 S code fastback last Saturday, They had the paper tags so I assume that they were the two inch. I'll check them next time I work on the car.

Fitment to the center, chrome spokes is your clue ;)  A "snug" fitment is correct, a "gap" would be incorrect. (this you could do without pulling one off)

Measurements shown in images taken from the "Now Sold" eBay listing I mentioned yesterday:

The paper label ones I installed are 2 inches as well. Possibly Ford changed suppliers.

Would these rings be different from the rings used on a 67 Cougar with styled steel wheels ?
