Our AT friend Rob requested I do a Continental Wheel Kit page. I decided to do this in two parts because of the amount of pictures and data.
Created for the personal use of Edsel Ford intended as a one-off, the Continental was introduced as a production model in 1940 with the covered spare tire outside in the rear. This was dubbed the Continental Wheel.
By the early fifties the Continental Wheel was made and purchased for virtually every make of automobile. It was now an option directly ordered from the car manufacturers.
This is my Tribute to the Continental Wheel Kit Part 1. Enjoy, Mario.
