1966 Styled Steel Wheels
« on: January 08, 2018, 02:43:43 PM »
Over on one of "the other" forums, a Poster had a question as to what SSW (with or without Trim Rings) would be correct for his December built 1966. One of the long time members of that forum, with many thousand Posts, replied that the C6ZZ SSW, with the Trim Rings was available October 1, 1965. While I haven't checked my TSB's, Marketing Action Guides or Service Merchandising News yet, in all of my other information, the earliest that I can document the C6ZZ's as being available is November 1, 1965, in the Ford List Price Book bearing that date (which probably means that it was printed before then, and possibly the C6ZZ's were available before then).
I contacted the Poster who had replied with the October 1, 1965 date, asking him for some documentation of the October 1 date. He replied that he had been looking for that himself, as he thought that he had seen it in some Dealer Books, to which he no longer had access.

In searching our Forum, the best I could find was that C5ZZ wheels were acceptable by MCA rules for build dates prior to January 1, 1966, and that a previous owner of one of our Members' cars had said that the C6ZZ wheels were original to his October xx built '66.

Does anyone have any printed documentation that supports the C6ZZ SSW being available prior to November 1, 1965 ?

Thanks,

Bob

Documentation no, but my San Jose Oct 65 18th build (scheduled) K GT Fastback was ordered with, and came with, the 66 Style Steel Wheels, all five. I know the two previous owners personally, we all worked together, and that's their statement. The original owner still wants "his" car back. My answer is still - no.
