The magnesium wheels did not have American Racing cast in the back of the wheels. The stamp sounds like it might be right. I think they also used a decal or sticker on the back. I know where to get the lug nuts, there is a vender that goes to the swap meets that has them for 50 cents each. I don't know for sure when they switched to the later style lug nuts, it was sometime in the late 60s. The small lug nuts would be right for a 66.

I have never come across a 15X10 vintage American. 14X6, 14X7 and 15X8.5 are the most common. US wheel made some 16X8.5, you see those around and people think they have a gold mine. The problem is they don't fit in the wheel wells of most older cars. There is someone in CA that can widen the aluminum wheels. They cut the wheels and weld them back together.

I have access to two 15x10 but they are 5on5 for full size chevy pu,mine are going on a 53 ckevy pu but it has a monte carlo rear 4.74.i would probably be better off just buying 2 repops for the rear .I go to Summitt about once a month about 180 mi each way, they have them for 244 ea ,my trick is far from original any way. I just want rid of these Cragers

I have 1 15X8.5 American. I don't get rid of any of the vintage wheels that are Americans. Rods West migh have the wheel. There are a few hoarders that have most of the vintage wheels.

I have enough Viper Red for a few cars. I did not mix it, it was a factory pack color. They discountinued the paint and they had a smoking deal on it. It all came from the same batch so there won't be any problems color matching the paint I bought. It all came out of the same box. It uses the same hardner as the clear. That was not discountinued. I will just buy the hardner when I need it.

Viper Red works the same way. At night it's real dark colored. In a garage, it looks like fire red.

I don't do any of the paint mixing, I'm just a consumer. The local paint store was selling some discountined polyurethane paint at a discounted price and I loaded up on some of it. 6 months ago they had a lot of colors to choose from, they are running low on colors now. People from Mexico are coming over and buying 8 gallons at a time. Viper Red was one of the colors they had a lot of.
