Hi everyone, I am not a actual owner of your wonderful cars but I have come across a set of 4 rims (that still have the old tire on it..lol) that I would like to sell but can't seem to locate how to find a buyer for them. Can anyone give me direction in what to do and how to go about this please?
Those wheels are for a later car than a Model T. If you can get good close-ups of the wheels from both sides, maybe somebody here can identify them. Once you know what they are, you can advertise them on a website that applies to them, or put them on ebay.
They look like 16 inch wire wheels for a 34 or 35 Ford.
They look to be in pretty decent shape going by the pic.
If you can post pics of all 4 wheels you can try to sell them on the Ford barn website.
You can do the same on Ebay also.
Go to the Fordbarn website and click on the section devoted to 32-48 Ford cars.
The website is devoted to Ford cars 09-64 I believe.
You might get an idea what your wheels will bring as others might be trying to sell some like yours.
!932 was the only year for 18". 1933-34 were the only years for 17". 1935 was the only year for the 16" wire wheel. 1936-39 used the odd VW beetle-looking rim with a wide bolt pattern. 1940-48 used the traditional 16" steel disc wheel, once again with a 5.5" bolt pattern used from 1928-1935.
Rhonda, do you have an ancestor that was a dentist and lived in the Chicago area around 1903?
Unless my memory is failing me, I believe I read that the very first purchaser of a Ford car (current Ford Motor Co., founded June of '03) was a Dr. Pfenning who lived in/near Chicago.
