Would you be needing early riveted rims? Have some. Located in Western Canada. May have a window latch also.

 

Cool

Here's what we are seeking:

One metal slider window latch (right front if position makes a difference)

Spare tire/ steel rim

original jack/lug wrench/tools

Spare tire hold down screw/ring

Thanks!

For some reason I was watching your recent auction of a 240Z.....

Anyway, I might have the spare tire/rim, but I don't think it's straight. Ok for looks, but I wouldn't drive on it. Let me know if interested (in CO )

Thanks for the reply. Might be interested in the wheel. Would rather have a straight one but will keep you in mind.
