1964 Ford Galaxie Rims Wheels Needed

The last thing needed for us to finish our 3-year long resto project is wheels, rims. We have a 1963-1/2 galaxie 427, 425hp all factory original, black color. We've been unsuccessfull in locating the right wheels.

I am looking for a full set; this includes (2) front, and (2) rear.

All high performance Galaxies for 1963, and 1964 came with special 15 inch steel wheels, as opposed to the standard 14 inch wheels. Within that change, I believe the offset on the front wheels is a bit different than the rear. Please reply if you know where I can find a set. Thanks!

1963-1/2 Ford Galaxie 427, 425hp numbers matching, very unique, going to Barrett Jackson in 2009!

Kelsey Hayes with flame cut vents and blow-out rings. Anybody that I know who has them would never sell them. I dont believe the off-set was different between front and rear. I think the Nascar rims were different back space and width.

Why not use these until you can find the correct wheels. At least they will get you on the road.

Thanks for the prompt replies all! I took a look at the link you sent, and these may work. We're measuring today, and will let you know. We found some 15" wheels like these and they rub the exhaust in the back, and touch in front when making a hard turn. The offset is incorrect on them. Thanks again for the responses guys.

I have a set of the 5.5" x 15" Kelsey Hayes original wheels used on the Galaxie, Thunderbolt and HiPo cars from 62-64. Very good shape, bead balsted, clean, no dents. $ 450 for the set

Thanks

Especially since the original poster went to Barrett-Jackson in 2009.

Probably someone did a search for something and then responded to the post and didn't bother to look at the last post date. Have been seeing a lot of old post drug up lately. Drives me crazy, but that is just me. I always check the post date to see if it is current or not.

Re: 1964 Ford Galaxie Rims Wheels Needed

When my car was a Galaxie 500, I ran 15" wheels (72 LTD caps) with no problems.

When I cloned her into a 500XL, I went back to 14".

I liked the 15" look better, but I needed the 14" 500XL caps to finish the cloning.
