Here are 5 nice red 1935 Ford wire wheels for sale including hub caps and adapters for $400. The wheels are in good shape and look ready to bolt on your original Ford or traditional hot rod. Perfect for the period look. The hub caps have blue paint in the V8 and the circle. The hubcaps have some dents, not perfect, not terrible - one of them has a bigger dent and it's pictured. Wheels are 5" x 5.5" bolt pattern - they will fit later Ford drums with adapters.
Also included are the adapters and supports. (Last picture). The thin wheel support will allow 1928-35 early Ford style wire wheels on 42-46 Ford 5 x 5.5" drums. The thick adapters allow mounting the 1935 Ford Wires to a Ford 9-inch with Drum brakes and the 5 x 5.5" pattern. The thick adapters cost $80 each and the thin ones cost $20 each new.

Rod & Kuture Illustrated #40 has a great article on Aaron's 32 Vicky. (Made the back cover too!). The article details the build and features a great picture of our custom upright Model T tank used in the Vicky. Great build Aaron!

Made from layers of canvas impregnated with synthetic resin binder, the benefits of phenolic sheet for carburetor spacers are well documented. Reducing heat transfer from the intake manifold to the carburetor, they can promote a cooler, denser fuel mixture for more horsepower. Manufactured in the USA exclusively for Stromberg, the new 1/4in spacers are cut from Natural Canvas Grade C Phenolic sheet with the classic brown color. The full kit (part number 39447K) includes two gaskets – used above and below the spacer – and work with 97s and other 3-bolt, 2-barrel carburetors like the Holley and Edelbrock 94s.
Carb spacers need extra long intake studs, check out the extended manifold stud kit (Part number 89067-E) – three 1/4in longer studs with stainless steel nuts and lock washers.
