Looking for ShelRace
« on: December 19, 2019, 10:03:52 AM »
Is John Bessey still active on this forum?  Does anyone have contact info for him?  I'm interested in having some Avons made up to look like large letter Speedways.


Thanks

Brian;

Sorry guys, I went back to my old handle "CSX2259"

Yes, we do / did the tires in the photos, they are AVON CR6ZZs, we can also do most any tire and have done BF Goodrich. The AVON tires are pricey but you can not beat the performance and visual appearance, I believe they offer the best 1960s appearance out of most of the tires available today. If you are interested in having the tires transformed into what is in the photos please give Bella a call 1-760-428-2177 she will be glad to help you. The attached photo is a recent set that were completed for a CSX6000 Series Continuation Cobra owner. Thanks to those that gave us kudos, it is always appreciated. John

P.S. The AVON CR6ZZs were developed for rally racing. They are also a radial DOT approved tire.

I am chomping at the bit to do the same.

Almost finished with construction, then I can focus on more important (to me) issues.

Can you do the vintage Firestone lettering and strip like this?

Yes, I would need a letter height though.
