Steve, did you put 14s or 15s on it?  It left the factory with 14s, but the newer 14s had a different back spacing which was what caused the problems I experienced.  You have also converted that car to 4-wheel disks, so it is now a different animal.
I had a similar problem with the Shelby 500s I put on the Newp until I converted that car to disks.  Both sets were 15s.  Now they fit like they were made for the car.  I never had a problem with the rear drums - and still don't.

If that Windsor still has drums I would be very wary of mounting newer rims.  Check them fully first before committing.


Actually, Leaburn was kind enough to dig up a set of road wheels for me.  The disc brake conversion on this will accept either size.  It's made for 14's

Yes, and that was my point.  That '62 has been converted and does not have the original drums.  Therefore as it currenlty exists it's not a good answer for the question.
