The color really throw's me, but I was thinking an AMC minus the trim ring and center cap. possibly off a gremlin.

If it's an AMC It was silver metalic. They had a chrome trim ring and a center cap with the AMC (red white and blue) logo. Ford amc and chry. had the same bolt patern.

what I meant

Rollinhard said its a 4 3/4 bolt pattern ford rim. It might be a Gm wheel if its 4 3/4. Don't know if ford had a 4 3/4 wheel? olnolan

Pretty sure they did not. How are you determining the bolt pattern? Many people measure incorrectly.

Joe is right, on a 5 bolt pattern you don't measure from the center of one hole to the center of the hole across from it. You measure from the outside of one hole to the center of the hole across from it. 4 3/4 is a GM bolt pattern. CLICK HERE

To measure the rim bolt pattern on a wheel with 5 bolt holes, hold the tape measure on the edge of a bolt hole and measure across to the center of the 2nd hole. The diagram below should make it clear.
