It was a super nice car (only about 13 years old remember) that our dad took in as a trade in for only $750. It was exactly as seen but had the same 6" wide Americans in back. Those 10 inch wide Chrome wheels, they were on a number of cars and are on his truck (our fathers 55 F-100) today. He had the offset changed so they are tucked in.

I'll take the truck thanks. Back in the day,we used to send axles Moredrop to get them reforged and dropped. The natural result or reforging them is that it narrows the axle slightly allowing for wider wheels. Last I heard they are still in business but it costs more to have an axle dropped than it does to buy a new one.
