Probably 14" - that was standard back in the day for Aussie fords.
I think they might be 15's, looking at a lip in the wheel.
By that, I mean a 14 inch center.
With the tyre hoop, flared to take the 14" centre.

Lots of 12 slotters, and GT 5 slotters, are converted to 15" the same way.

I just found mine. It is a Mercedes AMG ONE. You can see it by googling mbusa, vehicles, future vehicles. It is a hybrid race car. Top speed, 217 mph. Zero to 124 mph in 6 seconds. It has 1000 hp! And it is 4WD. Can't see the price on that site. Bet I can't afford it unless I can find a bank with lax security and much cash in the vault.

But, seriously, not all hybrids are wimpy cars. It is a shame they are being ignored in the battle between ICE and EV cars. The AMG ONE has only a 1.6 liter V6 turbo, plus an electric motor on all four wheels. Gas mileage isn't shown, but I'll bet it isn't bad for a 1000 hp car. But with oil at $20 to $25 per barrel, who gives a shit.

I don't know much about the OZ Falcon, except that I have read that it kept the four liter I6 but in a much higher state of tune than it ever had in the US. Way back in '64 I had a girlfriend who had a '60 Falcon with less than 100 hp. I drove it once. I wondered if it was street legal. It was so slow that I felt like opening the driver's door and help it by pushing with my left foot. I asked her if it was insured, and she said yes. I suggested that we set fire to it. As you might guess, she wasn't my girlfriend long after that. Back then, my car was a '64 GTO, so the Falcon was a bit of a downer.

got any pics of the old goat laying around? a friend in college had a '64 ragtop gto with tri-power that we used to run all over the place. it's still under a tarp in his back yard, one day to be restored. his is blue, white top and interior, manual transmission.

the 64's have a special place in my heart!
