yes drive it dont waste it dang..jut because its rusty.. shoot thats wayyyyyy many times more solid clean than what i am driving,.,my 75 C20,


i posted on FB and craiglist and found 16" one piece wheels for my C20 for cheap off of different ppl, 1 or 2 at a time.

two of mine that i found for it are stock steel gray painted 1980s or early '90s ford one so the center hub hole is about 1/4" 3/8" too big for my hubs. and i found two white painted ones that i was told were off a ford but have the correct 4-3/8" hub holes so they are hub centric tight fit good and right,. so hmmm,... i missed three free ones in springfield i found posted online, on FB or CL,
someone got to them like hours before i could get down there and grab em..
when i got the truck the rears were extra wide 16.5" 1950s or 60s rims with three tabs for hub caps. the fronts were normal width split ring rims.

That's an awesome truck. Must of had a slide-in camper? The Lev-o-Gauge on the dash and door is a neat idea.

How soon were you planning on scrapping the wheels?

In no hurry really..just thought I'd offer them before sending them to the scrap yard..

Holy crap! I wonder if they actually sell at those prices or if they just keep the adds posted? Or maybe people just pay good money for rims with the date code they need?

There is a very good reason those rims are no longer in use. They're death traps! Send them to the scrapyard, don't endanger others.
