SOLD!!! – For Sale – Original Ford GT40 Wire Wheels By Borrani


The famous Max Balchowski gave these Ford GT40 Borrani wire wheels to the seller many years ago while the seller was in Max’s shop in West Hollywood, California.

Max knew the GT40 wheels would also fit the seller’s Bizzarrini GT 5300.

Max was an expert on the Bizzarrini cars and at the time Max maintained Carey Loftin’s Bizzarrini which can be seen in both the Steve McQueen movie, Bullitt, and Clint Eastwood’s Eiger Sanction.

Max created the famous “Old Yeller” sports race cars and set up many of the West Coast top race cars and many of the stunt cars for Hollywood films.

Max Balchowski helped Giotto Bizzarrini manage his racing activities at Sebring in 1965.

It is believed these wheels are from an early competition Ford GT40.

The seller was on a race team that raced a Ford GT40 at Sebring and against the earliest GT40s in Nassau in the 1960s.

The markings on each wheel are the size (15 X 6 1/2 front and 15 X 8 rear) and a code which is believed the last two digits are the year of mfg. which is 60 for the two front wheels and 61 for the two rear wheels.
