I really like this style. A little similar to a pair I saw on a never-registered '63 Dodge 330 factory racer. These were for the '65 and '66 models?
Waitin' for the day I get my first '70 Shelby convertible!

Optional for 65 and early 66 cars.

Simple answer. They are not original. They are reproductions or you could possibly describe them as continuations? To be kind, he seller is not using the word original accurately. Or he is being intentionally deceptive to be the most cynical.

The most obvious advice is don't buy them for that price. If you feel offended by the auction, send the seller a message explaining there is no such thing as an original 65 GT350 that was built in 1990.

Original centers, yes.  What I can't tell is if there's a bead-lock as later rims are manufactured with.  If they are totally identical to the original as-installed; I find nothing objectionable about the description.  I only wish the asking price was more reasonable.
