(03/23/2020) The rims appear to have little paddles added to them (stock?)?

“This is a project Jeep. It’s a rare Marine Corps radio Jeep. It’s been modified. It has a Buick V-6 225, 160 HP engine. It has a vintage Warren electric winch mounted to a heavy duty bumper, oversize tires on deep dish rims and an after market removable cab. It has a complete, all new brake system, new aluminum radiator, all new wiring harness and lots of extra parts including a brand new gas tank and all new gauges.

    Those are not paddles on the wheels. My guess is that someone cut the centers out and welded them back in after they flipped the wheel around. Then welded those in for gussets. I have seen a few done like that on Pnw4wda race rigs. If you look at the wheel it has the drum side of the wheel in the out side. The stock old wheels had that on the inside.

    Marty is correct in his description of the “paddles” and the reason for them. Back in the 1950’s that was a common practice in dirt track stock car building. The wheels would be modified just as Marty has stated for wider tread……better handling……stiffer wheels especially on right front and right rear.

    If and when we get to go racing this season i will try to see if i can find some other wheels that are done the same way and take some closer pictures

    This is another very cool, temptingly priced vintage military jeep.
    But this one looks SOLD? Dave: “This posting has been deleted by its author.”

    I was surprised this was still listed for sale. Seller might have forgotten to delete it.
