I think the short gusset wheel looks better then my full gusset wheel. The big gussets look like they should be on a '70s Disco van, jacked up, funny fir all over and strobe lights?
I just measured the offsets. They are both the same, 5-1/4 +/- about 1/8".
That does confirm that the 10" Campi wheels have the 2" additional added to the outside on the mounting flange, i.e., increasing the rear track by 4".
So that would take a 2" spacer to put the 8" and the 10" in +/- the same outside track.
On the gussets, I can only repeat what Gary Hall told me, "the original wheel is the one with the full gussets. The mold got damaged, repaired and the gussets got shortened as a result".
He also told me that he had purchased the mold from DT and that it was at the Shelby Wheel Company where they were going to cast wheels for Hall.
I personally don't know if that ever happened but doesn't look like it did?
So take anything Hall said with a "grain of salt".
No date codes in mine.
That discussion started because at the time Hall got $1500 for the NEW pair. Everything I needed on this car required throwing $100 bills at. I ran out of ink to print new ones.
So I asked if he had any USED ones. He said "sure, but I want $2,500 for those". I asked "why, they are used?". He said "because the original ones are rare and worth more".
He had an original "Detomaso" Weber manifold AND carbs too. Don't ask how much. You don't want to know.
Gotta luv Gary.
One other thing, these were just painted silver (Ford argent?) on the outer portion.
The inside of the wheel was painted the gold color like the Grp4 wheels were.
I have no idea if that matters at all? Just sayin'.
The current re-pops vary a little in that they are cast more smoothly and the very tip of the gussets aren't as radiused as these.
Who's going to notice that on the car?
