Yeah, I was in a bind for a set recently.  Needed some on short notice.  I couldn't find a set locally anywhere.  Steelies from 80s - 90s Crown Vics did the trick for me, but aren't quite correct. 
 
I had no problem getting $100 for a nice set of 4 that came off of my Montego wagon, a couple of years ago.

I scrapped a bunch of those a few years back. You mean people are paying money for them now?

I hardly ever see vehicles from the 70s in the local yards so I can imagine its tough to find a set when you're in a bind. I see them going for around 25-50 each on ebay depending on condition.

Square panthers use the same wheels, 92 up start more backspace, and lose the nubs for dog dish caps at some point...
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.

I have five or six in my yard. Looks like six. Clean metal. No bead rot. No nubs in center area of rim, so they must be nineties crown vic or mercury marquis.

i just recently found another private yard like that, checked it out last saturday, raining and swampy Angry no torinos there but tons of chevelle and GTO/lemans cars and parts, (4) 72 cougars there though...
but i'm told the same owner has 4 or 5 more properties full of old cars!!! i was shown a few pics of one of the other yards with several large chicken barns full of cars Big smile can't wait to check that place out!!!!Thumbs Up
