Nice car! What wheel and tire combination does it have? I'm still debating on wheel size when I finally finish my '66.

They are american racing 17"s...



225/55 17 Front
235/55 17 rear

Not a fan I'll proably go back to 15x7 or 15x8 steel wheels with small caps.

Thanks for the response. I'm debating between the 15" and 16" myself. The car came with 14" steel wheels and SS hubcaps, but I upgraded the brakes and have to run at least a 15" wheel. I agree those are a little too big for my taste. Wheels are definitely a personal preference though.

X2 for the vinyl roof ! Really nice looking car, and in my opinion, the vinyl roof really sets it apart. very popular way back when, but you don't see many nowadays ... I plan on putting black vinyl roof on my impala if I can locate the correct stainless trim ...

That rear trim piece (for vinyl top or two tone paint) is very-very hard to come by!
