This is mine and only has 2-days left on Feebay. I posted it before in the Misc Parts for sale section but I'm thinking most people never even saw my post. Granted it is not "technically 100% concours" correct but it is the correct size for most of the Cats built in 67-68. Seems to be very little interest on it. So far only one bid as of now of $0.99. This is a NO RESERVE auction. This tire would look great in the trunk of any vintage cougar. The feebay link is below:

Shipping would be considerably less if I was to take it out of the box. I could send it UPS like that. Local pick-up is welcome as well.

Tires are one of the few items they will let you ship as-is with nothing more than a tag on it. Should be about $30 or less anywhere in the U.S. via UPS Ground.

Cool tire. Looking at your #7 and #8 photos showing the bead damage, that tire may or may not hold air. Obviouisly mounting or dismounting damage.

That being said, it would make for a very nice spare tire for sure.

I will try and decode that UV707 DOT code and get a better indication as to when the tire was produced.

The yellow code on the tread tells the tire builder in the plant which 'green' tread extrusion it is and he/she is supposed to place on the building drum and they are to match that with the build sheet. You still see those tread codes on tire today. Look at a BFG All Terrain T/A or Mud Terrain T/A, etc... and you will see it's tread code in white paint.
