Hurst Wheels

I bought a set of 4 Hurst wheels and tires for my 1965 GTO.
They are a very unusual design made by Hurst.
Here is what I have found out so far about them.....Hurst Wheel History
Has anyone seen this design ?
anyone have any pictures of these on a car?
here are a few pics of mine..........

Second time I've seen them. First time was when you posted them on the other forum! Thanks for posting them here....and sharing your car with all of us, too. It's about as good as it gets, seriously. Are you going to run them on your '65? I'm not sure I'd have the courage to, if I had 'em. Too nice, and too rare. Have never seen 9or even heard of) another set of arrowhead Hursts.

i am not sure if I will use them or not on my GTO.
I really like the spinner hub caps that came on my car new.
I just know it's hard to find a complete set that are in original nice shape, that is why I bought them.
I have searched the net and still can not find a picture of them on any car.
The Hurst site I posted states they are rare. I just want to know how rare they are.

That's part of the fun of this hobby....doing the research. My blue charcoal'65 hardtop also came new with the Custom wheel covers with the spinners. And white wall tires. I bought it with Appliance mags and RWL tires. The original spinners were long gone. Been looking at sets, but they are hard to find in nice shape, and the very design of the wheel cover makes denting it on the installation very easy to do. Back to the Hurst's, you may have the only remaining set, who knows. They would, indeed, look absolutely knock out on your '65, and as far as the 'survivor' thing, they are perfect, as they are original. Can I ask what city in CA you bought the '65? I lived in the Bay Area, mostly Oakland, from '69 to '03. And was 'on the hunt' for GTO's for 25 of those years.

I bought my 1965 GTO from the original owner who ordered it new in 1964 he was in the Air Force in Sacrament Ca he was originally from Boston, Ma he moved back to Boston in the 1970s and drove the GTO home from Ca to Ma....... He and. I live in the same city here outside Boston I heard about the GTO by word of mouth that he was selling it and I bought it from him here in Boston Ma. I have owned it only 4 months.....it is an unrestored tri power 4-speed convertible.

Beautiful wheels as others have said and certainly quite rare. I'd like to know more about the tires though, did you say those are Hurst too?

And please, would love to see some pics of the 65 convert. Sounds like you jumped on a great opportunity as original paint, desirable option 65's don't come up for sale very often and when they do....whoooeee .

edit: Wait, I found it https://www.gtoforum.com/f12/one-owne...4-speed-53002/

WOW. All I can say. Go buy a lottery ticket sir, you have some luck.
