Wheel ID Help Too!

Recommended Posts

Member Cheyenne93 has a build going of the recent Bronco kit, and is using a parts box set of American Racing Gambler-style wheels which he thinks may have come from a GMC Stepside kit. I can't find reference to one that featured them, so I'm wondering if anyone else here could make a positive ID on the kit source?

Those wheels look like the ones in (most) Lindberg issues of the '34 Ford pickup.

The Gambler style wheels were also done by Monogram, but I can't place the exact kit they came from. These had the chrome plating removed, but they are the Monogram wheels in question:

Think these are the wheels from the 1980s-era revision of the Monogram '39 Chevy coupe. Most of them were black with flames on the box, but there was a 1990s "Deluxe Kit" issue with paint and glue that was molded in yellow.

That's it:

Casey, just curious but in the mid 80's this style was second to Keysone Classics but was they called Apollos?

It look like they look like they were included in the Lindberg '40 Ford Coupe kit, too:
