    Good luck in your search! I had a wonderful 59 coupe with them, and currently have a project cab with them (and a bench seat!).

    No roadster this time, but I will post the wheels, only because it shows what a set looks like when you cobble one wheel at a time. Expect to pay about $5000 a wheel, plus hubs and drums, and don't forget spinners. If you can find a complete set, buy it, it's a lot easier that way. Ask a guy who knows, ask me!

    We were looking for a set for disc brakes, and the existing set of reproduction Rudge rims are available .
    These are a very nice set but originals were the goal.
    Let me know if anyone is interested in the Reproduction Set
    Thanks

    They were only used for drum brake cars. Either A or B versions. No disc brake version was done.

    Coddington makes a disc brake version, I used a set on Da Spoodster. Mine had real spinners so looked the part better.
