Do Cougar styled steal wheels have a Ford {Part number?
I recently picked up a set of 68 Cougar styled Steal wheels, the only numbers I find are 14 X 6. Should they have a "C8W" part number stamped on them? I have noted Ford part numbers on other types of wheels. I have not decided what I'm gong to do with them. Thinking about putting them on the Fairlane.:burnout:

Badcatt, looking in my Ford Parts Interchange Manual it shows part #C8WY-1007-A and then under Identification Mark(s), it says stamped C8ZA1007C. I have a set of '72 Magnum 500's that were on my car when I bought it and it has a stamping on the back side around the lip of the wheel. John

Neal, probably had an ink stamp or sticker originally.

I looked on the back of my spare and didn't find anything. Where did you find 14X6?
It has more stamped on it here, Top line reads 6 14 93 8302 AIW Swcond line reads DOT USA T 14 X 6 JJ


I'm thinking they sare san older set of reproductions. Maybe build date is 6 14 93?

Chrome is a little dull and the recesses are a little rusty. But should clean up OK.

You can tell by how the center section is attached to the rim. Originals are rivited and reproductions are welded.

Thanks John, they are reproductions. I got them for next to nothing. They will go on the Fairlane for sure.

Should look good, if they aren't on a Cougar, then they should be on a Fairlane 500 Sport Coupe. Did they put the hypo motor in the Fairlane in '64 ? My Dad's was incredibly quick if I recall. Looking forward to seeing your Fairlane one day.

Mike,
The "K" code 289 could be had. Mine was just a "C" code Cruse-o-matic. But I have a top loader and Doc's old 302 from his Mach 1. I need to get back to work on it. I want to shred some rubber!

They actually put the K motor in the 63 first. Rare car some call them a 63 1/2. The 64 cars are more desireable due to their BFX history Baby Bolts
