Goodyear Speedway 350s
« on: March 09, 2019, 06:16:26 PM »
So a friend on the left coast is looking at a '67 GT350 with big letter 350s on it.

He is saying there is no DOT numbers or date code...... pre-1971 ?   Is that possible......?

The picture shows the only numbers on the tire, other than size.

What do the experts say.......

Reproduction/reissue tires have DOT numbers originals pre 71 do not. The tires will have a date code regardless of if early original or later reissue . Some restorers will grind off the DOT numbers the disguise a repro tire. I have seen some that grind off the date code also.

Yes,in that location they mean that the tire is like one of the current reissue/reproduction tires you can order from Kelsey tire.

OK... great, I'm hoping they aren't that old and can be utilized from time to time.

I will look for other markings and post as soon as I can.

I appreciate the assistance.

Bob,
Let me know if you got it, if not I will post it to you here. It is just about Knoxville in general as we are thinking of moving there.

Fran, I can't explain why I am not getting one from you. I have gotten one from a another member earlier today.

Hmm OK...Here is what I was asking...

Bob, we are thinking of moving to Knoxville. I have a few questions. Is it car friendly? Are there car things to do, is it safe for older cars and people? Are there events? What about Diners? Strange questions, but we like Mom and Pop Diners. What about houses, like can I build a large building to hold my cars? What are town codes like? Would there even be old buildings to buy that could store and work on cars there? Over all do you like the area? We are in Upstate New York now and it is getting bad here in many ways, it is time to leave.

I would tell you if I knew. I live in Kansas City. I would start a new thread in the general discussion area with your question. That way you have the best chance for the right information. Best of luck on your move.

Well... the car is here now, and sure enough no DOT numbers or date code on these tires.

Is it possible to be on the in side ....?

I suppose anything is possible. There is likely and not likely. Re read reply #1 for a more likely scenario. I thought I would remind you of another post that given the the picture of the number sequence on the backside of the tire you are beating a dead horse if holding out hope that the tires are vintage originals.

No I'm not hoping they are originals at all... just wanting to know how old they are and wondering if they are safe to drive on temporarily .... until I figure out what to put on it. Seems like the general consensus is BFG 225/60-15s ....
