I know there will be a LOT of laughter out there, but does anyone know of some available 73 Aluminum OEM Slot Mags for sale? Only need 1 or possibly 2....

They are pretty tough especially in nice shape...

I have a set of four with center caps that are really nice. I just polished up one with Mothers and here is how it looks. Had been saving if I got a 73 but ended up with a 72. Set of four $495 plus shipping.

If TexasVert isn't interested in those, I'd be interested in them. They are kind of hard to find in good shape.

Hey jeff8877, does the whole set look as good as the picture of the one that you sent? If so, I'd be interested in all of them.

They are on ebay pretty often don't know how many sell. There was a full set of NOS with caps, lugs and all on there. When people were pulling them off years ago you could get for $10.00 each. I read somewhere there were only a little over 1,000 cars that came with them. Does anyone have the marti info on how many there were.

They do polish up better than most aluminum wheels because they are forged aluminum that makes the material more solid and dense.

Those say 14x6. I thought mine were 14x7... Is the measurement taken from inside or outside the rim?

The measurement is taken from the inside of the bead surface. The wheel size is usually stamped on the back.
