Hello, everyone!! Hope I might be able to get alittle help here. I just came across what I believe to be a 1967 Champion of Chamblee Cat # 104BB. It is a Corvette body with stamped alum side-winder chassis and the 707BB motor! Front axle, rims and tires appear original. Spur gear is a 48t cox, not weldon but rear axle appears orig, same as front. However, the rear wheels & tires "silicone" appear to be non-orig to the car. My question is - does anybody know what would be the best rear wheels & tires to put on the car for running pleasure, hard or, soft? I think I need something at around 1-1/8th in OD. x around 1/2 inch or so. As the corvette body has a few small cracks at the front & rear bottom edges, I will probably take some time to repair and just get a "re-issued" lola body and paint it for running. The car had quite abit of running dirt and I've cleaned it up pretty good but I still have to take the motor apart to clean & lightly lube it! Thanks!!!
