69-70 rim blows

I see their repopping 69 rim blow wheels. whats the diff in a 70 besides the center trim. I mean I know it will fit a 70 but is there any other differences that wont make it correct?

1970 Mach 1 San Jose built Dec 23 1969. Marti says 1 of 7. Purchased in 1987. Original family owner of the powertrain 351C 2v FMX.


1993 GT 11,000 miles, Built 2-12-93 Auto, 3:27 Axle, cloth, sunroof. Untouched except for rubber and battery, Purchased new 8-3-93. still has the factory windshield fluid and new car smell.

Won't fit. The base of the wheel is completely different as 70's have the key on the column. 69's is still on the dash.

Yeah, I'm really hoping someone will start re-popping the '70 rimblow wheel. I've seen some lackluster restorations of late and I'd rather not fight with that.

I had my 70 rim blow retored years ago by perogies. Perogie Enterprises . They did a fanstastic job. It still looks brand new 16 yrs later. You either send them yours and they will restore it or they have some already restored ( I think ). It will cost you , but you will retain an original rimblow.

^^ Thanks. I've heard of Perogie. But I didn't know they did rimblow restorations.

If you look underneath a rimblow for a 69 there are no slots in the base/ring like the 70 has for the steering wheel keyed lock pin.


Mildly built 302, 4 speed, 3.40 gears. 6 pt. cage.
Narrow rear. Pro-Stars-15X7'' & 15X10'' on rear.
Lowered 1'' all around.

I sent my original rimblowoff my car so perogie could restore it. I bought the cheapest grant steering and put it on so i could drive my car until I got my original back. Then I sold the grant on e-bay.
