My 1973 Mach 1 came with the factory aluminum slotted 14x6 wheels. Two of my wheels are pitted and I am looking for two factory Ford wheels in very good condition. Please let me know what you have and the price. Thanks.

1973 Q-Code Mach 1. Full restoration in progress.
Those pitted wheels can be restored to like new.. Very bad pitted wheels can be acid dipped at your local machine shop or glass beaded, then polished..

Deep scrapes and gouges can be filled with alumaweld, sanded and buffed. Bent wheels can be straightened by a specialty shop..

I've had that work done many times in my shop, (years ago). It saves originality and is less expensive in most cases than replacing them..

Yeah, there's a couple companies here in Central Ohio that will completely refurbish alum wheels, and can even take out some really bad dents and such from hitting pot holes.

Aluminum is pretty malleable.
