The rears are Ford Crown Victoria or a close facsimile thereof, but the fronts [xx(] I don't know why you would care! :(

I do remember Chrysler Cordoba and or the copycat Dodge version having something similar, but I thought they were wheelcovers, maybe not! [:0]

IIRC the fronts were used on the Ford Granada/Mercury Monarch based Lincoln Versailles.

Fronts are 74-76 Thunderbird- the huge, bloated one. I've got one:) The rears are 78-79 Lincoln turbines. Still got a couple of those too[8D]

Actually, it's a more solid Hawk then many I've seen. The worst panel on the whole car is the trunk lid. There is some rust behind the front fender vent area but looks very workable to me. The floor and trunk pan isn't bad either. The rocker on the drivers side needs repair. No interior, hardware or dash. 259 with intake and timing chain cover off. Automatic, in car. This would make a good car for some one that had a rusted out hawk and wanted to combine the two.

I do think the rears are from a Lincoln. Starliner62 has a set of these on his Lark and they look good.

I've no personal knowledge of this but I thought I heard or read that the big lincolns from the 70s used a larger bolt circle than the lesser ford products ?

That said, those fronts DO look like something I've seen on a 70s era lincoln or Tbird. Rears I have seen on late 70s tbird and maybe 80s crown victoria.

Rears look like a popular after-market custom wheel from the late 70's, made by Western and many others.

The fronts are a Chrysler Cordoba wheel, we have the exact same ones on a '63 Lark two door. I saw the car the wheels came off of, it was a Cordoba.

If it were a Lincoln wheel, it wouldn't fit as the bolt pattern is different. (A Lincoln wheel is the same as Stude truck).

You're probably right, I was thinking of these:

They're on my 76. It was hard to tell without the center caps. They were available plated or polished.
