Can anybody tell me about these rims with the Ford stamp and additional K H stamp.
Hey Mr. 85E,
Look and see if the Centers are welded
or if they are riveted
Look at the shape of the cutouts
If the cutouts are "cat's eyes" shaped (eliptical with sharp ends), and if the centers are welded in, they are Kelsey Hayes Severe Service Wheels. Have heard of them selling for up to $500.00 each to the HiPo guys.
I got these with my 1963-1/2 galaxie which has mags on it and I also got center caps with them.
Center Caps? You mean "Dog Dishes"? Chrome with "Ford" on a black background? Those are highly prized too! Ms. American has four of them.
You got Mags
? You mean them old, cheap kind of wheels?
I don't know if worth anything. If anyone got some info on these, I would appreciate it. Thanks
If they are, as mentioned above (cat's eyes&welded), they are passionately coveted!
If you would take some pictures of the Cut-Outs, we'd be able to tell you if they are the Severe Service Wheels.
The Severe Service Wheels came on Police Interceptors, and other HiPo vehicles.
BTW, Ms. American has five of the KHSSW! If the hearsay of their being valued at $500.00 each is REALLY so, that means that the 3.14 has $2,500.00 worth the Wheels. And in 1964, my father paid $2,671.00 for the WHOLE car!
Get some pictures of them. Close-ups of the cutouts.
I've got to go now, but early tomorrow morning, I'll hunt down the JPGs of Ms. American's Wheels on PhotoBucket and post them to your thread.
Take care now, you hear?
