These wheels are historical and represent a unique period of racing history:
The woolferace on the inside of the wheels is not a typo, The very first Woolferace wheels were made by American Racing for Tony Woolfe (British racing driver), they were available in the late 60’s early 70’s. Then John Woolfe took over and Woolfe Race wheels were manufactured for JWR (John Woolfe Racing) by a Guest , Keen and Nettlefolds foundry (GKN) in the U.K. Midlands. After John Woolfes death (He was killed as a result of crashing on the first lap of the 1969 24 Hours of Le Mans race, an event which caused the traditional “Le Mans start” to be abolished the following year.) the GKN company took over the sole rights to the wheel design and began to make them as the Wolfrace wheel (with name cast into outer rim along with size).
Wheels are for sale for $250 each plus shipping if not picking up locally.
