What are people using for 7.75x14" Blue Streak (blue sidewall) replacement tires?

I see they offer 6.75 Blue Streaks with blue side wall and raised white letters (GT 350 tire). But cant find 7.75x14" blue side wall only's.

Is there something that is close?

Yea. That’s what I’m seeing. Bummer.

I was considering a blackwall or whitewall 7.75x14 Goodyear. Then having the blue line added. There used to be a local dude that did this.

But I can’t even frind 7.75x14” any Goodyears.

You can do it too, just head over to the local hobby or craft store and pick up an assortment of blue permanent markers. You'll be amazed at the results. I had a Goodyear white (line) with the same width sidewall "line" as a red line and made it into a perfect spare red line tire for the '68 RR. Find a bad white wall junk tire to practice on to get the color right and save lots and lots of $$$$. This used to be a white-line tire.

Nice !!

Problem is, I can't find a 7.75x14 Goodyear bias ply to start with. And then to add a blue line to.

I would consider something wider than 7.75 in a Goodyear. But must be 14"

Damn, That would be PERFECT for the trunk of my car. But no way would I try to drive on it.

Just weird detail shots on this phone.

68k miles. 1981 Hot Rod “Supercar Shootout” article said 60K miles.

The red-ish hue you see in the fender well is factory primer. Not rust

Working on fine cleaning the little corners and such. Q-tip, small soft bristle, ultra low aggressive stuff.

Nobu’s was a well known Hollywood high performance tuning place.

Across the street from the previous owners and my dad’s work in the 60’s and early 70’s.

Yup,, Nobu's was well known back in the day.
In the Valley, Jennings' place was popular - the son did my 1st Road Runner.
He told me that on his post-dyno test drive, he annihilated a Camaro laugh2

Survivor Hemi car.

Original paint and interior. Front bumper rechromed. Rest of original brightwork is extremely nice. SoCal car. Always garaged and extremely well cared for.

Might recognize it from print back in the day. This book was published in 1989
