The Correct Tire
Expert restorers and car show judges agree that the Firestone Wide Oval is the "correct" original equipment tire for your '60s and '70s musclecar. These authentic 2+2 polyglass tires are available in the famous Sup-R-Belt tread design. Original sidewall options used on the late '60s and early '70s muscle Fords included raised white letters, red lines, and white pinstripes, and they're all available from Coker Tire. Coker Tire currently offers several sizes of original Firestone Wide Oval tubeless tires ranging from D70-14 to F60-15.

Performance Suspension Technology now offers the Polygraphite Super Kit. Unlike many frontend kits, PST Super Kits have all the components necessary to properly rebuild your front suspension-inner shafts, upper and lower ball joints, inner and outer tie rods, idler-arm and control-arm bumpers (when equipped). These Super Kits also include Polygraphite(r), a new, superior, graphite-impregnated bushing material that doesn't "give" like OEM-type bushings. The Polygraphite(r) bushings included are upper and lower control-arm bushings, strut-rod bushings (where required), sway-bar bushings (with brackets), and stabilizer links with bushings.
