I just bought the same tires for my 73 Amx however I went with 215 65/15 fronts and 235 65/15 rear.  I wanted to go with bigger size but was worried about fender clearance issues.  Your car looks awesome!!!

Jake - Definitely looks good with those rims and tires.

I think you should save the Minilites for the Blue car :)

I was on the fence about the 235/60 up front but, have seen a lot of guys running them on stock wheels with no issue. I did have them on the 15x8 minilites but, with 4” BS it was a problem so, I went with 225/60 and that worked. Out back I have had no clearance issues with stock or aftermarket wheels and 275’s. On one of my cars I ran a 295/50 out back on a 15x10 with 5.5” BS and man it looked sweet!! With all that meat! Lol! No rubbing issues either.

Been a while since I posted about this car. Was on the fence about selling it(had it on feeBay a few times) but, man it’s to cool and original. So, I put a new Centerforce 10.5” dual friction clutch in, and have been driving it as much as I can. 

I also popped a valve cover off and found that the heads are 1970 291c castings. The build date on the door sticker is 1/71’ so I’m assuming the motor is a 10.2:1 compression 295hp version?

Next up, I’m thinking about putting a cam, lifters, and valve springs in it. Looking for a recommendation for a cam?

Also, I’m going to put some 2 chamber mufflers on so I get a little more “muscle” tone!!

That is one beautiful car with the 360, 4-speed and ram air. Love the colour, very ‘70’s. That’s gotta be a lot of fun to drive!

Hi, Jake,
For sure, one of my key fob will look nice on your car. Check my post and let me know if you like them;
