You can call them aluminum. They are certainly lighter weight than steel However it is a mix of metal.
These wheels were used on Ford Lincoln and Mercury models. The center cap is the difference. I had a set of these on a parts car. Sold the set to a guy in Detroit that restores these. I do currently have a set of these in a 14" diameter from a Versailles. The ones pictured above are 15" rims.
Interesting. Thanks Action!
I saw a set of them online except it looked like the dished portion on a couple of them had some chunks missing. So I’m wondering how they could be repaired. If Aluminum, I imagine filling with weld and grind and polish. But I have no experience with any of that including the wheels themselves.
For sale at $240. Which is about right for a non-polished wheel. You might find them attached to a car for less money if you bought the car. I know of a part Lincoln in the Phoenix area that is for sale
I will ask.
If may be all or nothing.
But I would not be opposed to buying the car. Two things would have to happen.
I have to sell a vehicle. (And I want to sell it, however there are a couple of things I want to do first)
And my better half would have to agree.
And the vehicle has to be available.
So what I am sayin is if it is going to happen it won't be swift. Because like many things it is complicated
I am going to go look at this vehicle and take some better pictures.
If I decide to buy it I would part out the car.
Would you be interested in the wheels?
And know if I buy it, it will be at least 60 days before I pick it up.
Space is an issue however I have listed a vehicle for sale and it should go soon
The other factor is heat. I would be taking this apart outside. The summer in Phoenix is not the best when working outside
I am a member of the local Lincoln club, This car Mark IV and the grey one behind it are owned by a guy in the Packard club. The two clubs do events together. That is how I was approached.
I have parted out 4 cars. Usually to get pieces that I can not find individually. There isn't much on this ride that I would want with an exception. That exception would be a rear stabilizer bar. That bar was not available on Mark III and was used on Mark IV. That is an upgrade I would like to make as it will be pretty close to a bolt in upgrade.
I will reach out to the guy and set a time to shoot more pics as he isn't the best with pictures.
Shipping, no problem. I have an Ebay store and ship parts all the time. I have done a set of those wheels before. to Detroit to a seller of wheels.
I will PM you and get an email address after I get pictures.
