Hi everyone, new to this forum, hope to learn a lot and get some of my questions answered by others that have been there. I have a 1970 Mach 1 351 W, shaker, was wondering about wheels, i bought my car with a slotted 5 hole rally wheel, is this the styled steel wheel indicated on my build sheet, it is style:S type:A code:A. i havnt seen many Machs with these wheels at all, any info on them?

PostSubject: Styled steel wheels   Thu 1 Sep - 15:09

You've got the right wheels. The styled steel wheels for 1970 Machs had 5 oval-type holes with smaller corporate hubcaps. You don't see alot because most guys tossed them in favor of more flashy keystones, cragers and torque thrusts back in the day! These days, most Machs are rolling on Magnum 500's because they look so good and are readily available in repops- mailed to your door with new rubber ready to bolt on! I am guilty as well, my car was originally a styled steel wheel car that I located some original Ford Magnum 500's for. To me, they just scream Mustang muscle! But everyone has there own opinion... Laughing

I agree on the Magnum 500's as I'm guilty too (LOL). What's funny now is the few people I knew with Boss Mustangs in the early 70's usually went out and replaced them with different lighter wheels. The magnesium and aluminum slotted wheels were some of the more popular replacements back then. Now days most 1969/70 coupe's, fastback's, and Mach's sport the 500's. The look funny without Magnums. It's become the standard wheel even though in 1969 and 70 only the Boss 302 and Boss 429's came with Magnums.
