1967 "B" bodies - rim options

Post by Bishop0 » Wed Jul 28, 2010 5:48 pm

Hi All

Were the Torque Thrust style rims a factory or dealer option on the 1967 "B" bodies?
If so which manufacturer?
Search up 1967 plymouth hemi gtx "King Kong" advertisements. The Torque Thrust rim is shown in at least two factory ads.
Also, where can I find information on what would have been available for the 1967 "B" bodies.

Thanks

You mean this ad??? :D (see attachment below!)
About the 'Torque-Thrust' wheels - they were - and are still
- made by "American Racing". They weren't a 'factory' or even '
'Mopar dealer-installed' option on the GTX or on any other car.
They're strictly an aftermarket wheel. In the mid-and -late-60's,
most Mopar B-bodies came with plain steel wheels with 'dog dish'
style hub caps as standard and full wheel covers optional - and
"Magnum 500' styled-steel 'road wheels' supplied by Motor Wheel
Corporation as an option above that.
