 Son painted wheels last night and put new tires on today. Fronts are 205/70R14, rears are 225/70R14. tire type is BF Goodrich, Radial TA. 

 

 Question , hub caps or no hub caps ????  Tires are white lettered , but son wanted the black wall, which I like better too.   Sleeper look.     Noel

The dog dish caps give it the look of a period factory hot rod, but you have do what you guys like.

My vote would be for the caps too. If you don't like the Rambler caps, maybe you can find some baby moons.

Is it a '64 American? Looks awfully similar to one we bought in '68 when I returned from Thailand. Ours was a 4 door wagon and gave us lots of good yrs.

Will have a 343, automatic. My son had a running 304 in it, then he was givin a 290 out of a 68 rebel wagon, with only 38,000 miles on it. Put it in thinking it would work, but it sat for two years, so it ended up seized. In 6 out of 8 cylinders. So did not use it. So then do you rebuild a 290 or a 343, which was also on our stock. I don't know how we kept all this stuff, any way , had the 343 bored out and son has an engine kit coming from the states with in the next few weeks to put it together. Noel

Just after I was hatched in 1970 I rode home from the hospital in a '65 Rambler 880 convertible,  the only car my parents ever bought new. 

Don't member that ride or any subsequent ride in that car.  :poke:

In 1971 it was traded for a 66 Chevelle Malibu wagon.  I remember the '66 Malibu mom drove it until '78.  

The '66 still sits out back at dads, probably sunk in the ground to the frame.   :(

 

Go with some kind of hubcap.  You don't want to get arrested for indecent exposure.
