I may be wrong, but I believe they might have the brake drums built into them..

That is a really nice car. I kinda like that Satellite/GTX next to it..

Those wheels are actually the brake drum. They are called "8 lug wheels" because they have 8 lugnuts holding the rim to the drum. A few of my cars have them. I think they are the best looking mid 60'* factory wheel ever made.

That 62 Bonneville has a smaller gas tank (24 gallons) than my 65 Bonneville (26.5 gallons).

I feel smart now lol I remember a 65 (I think) GTO or LeMans with them on Barrett-Jackson a couple years ago, and they were talking about it. They do have a real nice, unique look to them.

Those wheels were only available on big Pontiacs from 1960-68. Pontiac wanted to use a version of them on 1966 GTO'*. They actually had them listed in the sales brochure, but they were never released due to problems.

People have put them on GTOs, but with lots of modifications.
