    Good idea so to hide the lock ,If you have the name of the company that makes your wheel locks, They have a number on them you can order a few extra`s ,so not to worrie having only ONE

    Just pick a place to put that number so you don't lose it. I lost the number for mine, but ultimately wasn't a problem, as I sold the Bronco.

    Those wheels were put on the car in August of 1965
    They are the only wheels I remember this car ever having
    As for the discs----Some kit from Scarebird that was just brackets and I had to source the small GM calipers and Toyota Previa rotors.
    Some machine work is needed for the OEM hubs, so I opted to just buy a set from Scarebird--they have longer lug studs than stock so that was a plus.
    I am more than happy with the results---no power brakes but a dual master was added (76ish Mustang II master) and with a bit of filing I used the original pushrod.

    My neighbor has been after the early sixties set of TTs that I have on my flatbed trailer 14x7 with a ford/Dodge pattern.
    I've had people offer to buy the trailer just so they could get the wheels.
    I'm kinda half heartedly looking for a local wheel restorer that can restore them (Trailer and Ranchero)

    Too bad you're in Texas. There's a guy near my last job who restores and repairs cast wheels.
