    I know its a little more, but new chrome reverse wheels from jegs 15x6 are 50 bucks a piece. pretty cheap for a new rim that would look great

    Leonard,

    I may be run out of town for not being "frugal", but I bought new 6" rims for my Daytona for $37 each. They are Hayes# 82552 or NWRA# X-40273. Fit fine, work with Turner disk brakes, and use the smaller "Studebaker" lug nuts.

    I am told that these were used on '83-'92 Ford 4X4 Rangers and Bronco IIs. Maybe the boneyard has one of these.

    Seems like it's more likely to be a 7" wheel, which if measured rim edge-to-edge will read 8".

    I still need a answer on what car I should look for the correct wheel size ( 6" x 15" )

    Leonard Shepherd, editor, The Commanding Leader, Central Virginia Chapter,
    It's a long shot, Leonard, but see if they have any old Lincoln Versailles [:0] laying around; the little Lincoln that was based on the Ford Granada. If you find one with original 15" steel wheels on it, they should work.

    A second possibility is a mid-90s Ford Ranger 2WD pickup with 15" base wheels on it.

    Try to get the tires dismounted and measure the widths before you leave the yard. BP

    Yes, 8 inches wide will most likely rub, 7 is passable, 6 is a safe bet.

    Heh - I've been scavenging from such yards since '83! Man, I made GOOD money off Stude and Rammer stuff early on - there were LOTS of these coming thru the yards at that time.
    We've got three BIG chains of these yards here (in Calif) that I know of and lots of independent yards too. Although, admission is up to $2 bucks out here now![}]

    Mark writes:"I thought about perusing Ebay for valuable parts, then trying to go pull them on the cheap and resell."
    Trust me, it's DO-ABLE! I've done it although not much of late. I took a tailgate window motor out of a Travelall last year. Actually, someone had taken it out for me - it was just layin' there. I took it up front and tested it on a battery they have for such things. Tested good.
    Sold it on ebay for $150.00 and I'd paid 12 bucks for it.[:0]

    One thing about these yards is that they're really just a parts-picking stop before the cars are squished. If you see something you like - better get it quick! Cars rarely sit there more than 6 weeks before they go to the crusher to make room for a new candidate![xx(]

    I'll add this: About a year ago, I spotted a '60 Lincoln in one of these yards. It was very tired, but lots of it's brightwork and stuff was intact and in good shape. I knew/know nothing about the Lincoln market or following, but I bought a few parts off it on speculation. That first day I think I spent $18 bucks on 3 or 4 items. To my happy surprize the stuff did well on ebay. Most of it went to Europe! I had several buyers/bidders E-mail me with requests for stuff. I wrote back and asked these folks WHAT was worth saving off the beast. Partly from their feedback and partly from my gut, I ended up buying something shy of $300 dollars worth of brightwork and locks and door handles, etc.. Turns out this thing used the same window motors as Avantis used as well! Last tally - my 300 dollar outlay netted $3K+!!![] Of course, I had about 12 hours of labor and a couple of 100-mile round trips to this particular yard, but I think it was worth it.
