They are actually old repops of the original Ansen wheels. Leaving these in the van until I can get the project started. They need professional buffing before mounting new shoes.

Thank you,Jeremy.
I've learned ALOT since finding the '61 Loadside.
I am now attempting to use the new-found wisdom to strictly focus on what is realistic,since the rot can add-up to big bucks.
I'll spend big-bucks,but no longer on rust.

Thomas,

I got your PM and attempted to reply but keep getting "Some users couldn’t be added as they have disabled private message receipt." :banghead:

I have made several attempts and keep getting that message, even when clicking on "Reply" to your recent P.M.

Other than that, All is well.

Pulled the front bench and found a business card of the Pine Tree Lodge in Escondido,CA. This was when color TV was an upgrade back in the day. Later to be renamed the Palm Tree Lodge and demolished last year, along with the Wagon Wheel restaurant.

Installed an original upholstery '62 driver's-side individual seat in its place.
