Those ones on the yellow Mach1 are not factory Ford Mustang II wheels. The Mustang II wheels had a radiused lip while the ones on the Yellow car are step down design.

I agree, since the Mustang II used 4 lug hubs and '70 Mustangs used 5 lugs. Most likely either a mid '70's Torino or aftermarket wheel.

I think that the front wheel on the Mach 1 were from a company called E-T.
They were popular in the 80's.
You can still find the odd set at a flea market and when you do, they're usually pretty cheap.

The ones that are on the mach 1 I have seen have a ford logo cast into them but I cant remember seeing a casting number There is a Local Mustang shop here that has offered quite a bit of money for them but wouldnt talk about what they are off of and He has been dealing in mustangs since the early seventies so I cant help but be courious They are 15" I think and I am pretty sure that they didnt come off of any of the mustang II's
and I hav never seen any on a Torino or anything else that I remember Thanks Jeff

Ooops my bad,forgot that mine were 4 lug design. I have seen those wheels on several different ford models though(maverick,granada,LTD11,ford elite)they also sold them at western wheel stores back in the day. Check out craigslist in your area(just post a pic of the wheels you are looking for and I bet some one has a set laying around.

When I bought my 70 fastback 24 years ago there was a set of them on the back, they looked a little dated even then. I'm also thinking the were made by ET. I still have them but they are a little hard to get to at the moment or I would look for you. I should post them in the free stuff section sometime, I had forgotten I even had them.

I have a set of those for my 69 mustang....I figured they were ford wheels but never really looked too close at them.

FWIW, Ford did produce wheels that looked similar.
They put them on Crown Vics sometime around the early '90's.
IIRC they were 16" diameter.
