I seem to recall reading somewhere that ford offered painted and unpainted wood spoke wheels in 1925?
I can't seem to find the source of my recollection.
Can anyone out there help.
From Bruce McCalley's encyclopedia on disk, Page 690: In 1925, perhaps after the introduction of the “Improved Fords” for 1926, the wheels for the balloon tires could be had in a natural wood finish in addition to the standard black. My guess would be that "perhaps" should be "probably", but I can't prove it. I suspect a search of period photos would show very few actually on cars, even 26-27 ones.
Here's a thread on a NOS set those wheels recently for sale: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/599638/636790.html?1461592157
The information above is correct, but only for the 21" wheels, and were available well before the improved car. A lot of the accessories that were available for the improved cars were also available by mid-year 1925.
