Or you could order Honeycomb wheels in 14" or 15". This 1971 Judge has G60x15 RWL on 15" Honeycomb wheels:

I've been owing a 1971 like this, triple black, for 12 years now, the difference being a conv. but with the 400c.i. If I could I would show it to you just for fun.

Did you know . . .

Only the first 100 1966 Shelby GT 350H Hertz Rent-A-Racers had a 4 speed transmission. After having to replace the clutch in many of them, shortly after delivery, Ford and Hertz decided to go with the Auto trans instead.

Took me days and days to go through all your posts Lee, you've done an absolutely fabulous job.

I just wanted to correct a post about RWL's on 1969 Trans Am's. 1969 Trans Am's were absolutely available with RWL's, they were the first Pontiac to have them. But you won't see them on any of the promotional pics, because most of those promo photos were early models. The promo cars were built November 1968 (silver prototype) and January 1969 (white-blue, pre-production paint scheme, red Ram Air stickers, and stripes over the rear wing).

There's a June 1969 bulletin to Pontiac dealers listing RWL's for the Trans Am, and I have a few original window stickers listing "FIBERGLASS TIRES WHITE LETTERS" in the Trans Am description.

The RWL's were sourced by Goodyear, and were a write-in preference on the 1969 Trans Am when ordered. RWL's were NOT available on other Pontiacs like the 1969 Firebird 400, GTO, or Judge.

And again, thank you for all the photos and information you've uploaded. I learned a great deal of information from your posts, especially about the 1969 Boss 429 Mustangs.

Hi Mike

Thanks for the kudos - greatly appreciated.

That is very interesting about RWL tires on the 1969 Trans Am. The car was released March 8 1969. You are saying a bulletin dated June 1969 offers RWL tires. So there must be a number of TAs that were not elligble for RWL tires because they hadn't become available yet. So it depends on when your TA was built whether you could have had RWL tires. The factory build sheet would show them on it

Did you know . . .

Of the 455 1963 Thunderbird Sports Roadsters built, only 37 of them had the M code 390/340 hp with 3x2 carbs. Of those 37, only 10 also had AC.

Hi Lee,

Thanks again for this great thread.

The first 1969 Trans Am's were produced in May 1969 and used as company cars. Dealers began receiving them in June 1969. The way RWL's were specified is still unclear. Original price sheets from both early and late in the year did not specify how to request the RWL's over the Firestone Wide Oval Fiberglass F70x14 white pinstripes, but they did show RWL's on the window sticker for the description of the Trans Am option.

I'm doing an all-day research session tomorrow at the Pontiac Museum, and I will look specifically for this info.

Mike

Dodge/Chrysler did testing on the 1969 Charger Daytona using 3/8 scale models. This is the only surviving one:
