    N8, not a factory wheel for anything might be open for debate. They were on some factory Studebaker's in early tests, and came on the car given to Roger Ward. Then again, those test report cars had racing stripes and other add ons that never were offered later.If they were the real kidney bean Halibrand's, you might try to make the case that they were "factory"

        Maybe its just the lighting, but that type wheel combined with a white wall tire does look right to me. Is it really that white or is it the lighting? Anyway, I've always thought that the 63 and 64 GTs
        look too elegant for the race car look even if they do have R engines. Sort of like wearing track shoes with a Tuxedo. Just my 2 cents.

            Hey John,

            Congrats on the good fortune. And you did the smart thing...didn't put it back trying for the moon.

            I love to gamble and I used to be very lucky that way; don't get the chance much down in NC, where there is only one indian casino and it is a long way across the state from me.

            Show us more of your new GT.
