Sits well on those 15" rims too.


There is a thread regarding them.

Apparently, a gentleman named George Eby in the '70s built them. Mine were presumably installed in the mid '90s when the car was last restored but I cannot locate an invoice as to where the owner purchased them.

If that is Stratford, East London, or even Stratford on Avon, you can get a set from me, as I have moulds to make wide arches that were used for a racing Elan.
