Beautiful Roadrunner! I like your tire choice!

Back in the day, my 2 brothers and I together bought a new '69 GTX 4-speed. Situations in life caused my brothers to loose interest in the car and I gladly ended up with the GTX. The Goodyear Polyglass GT red lines were the only tire that gave my GTX a smooth ride, stayed together during 3 figure mph trips, never once had a workmanship warranty issue and actually let me wear the tread smooth to the wear bars. I tried a set of the Firestone fiberglass belted Wide Ovals once because they were cheaper than the Goodyears. After 3 of the 4 Firestones with less than half wear spit the treads off their carcasses like retreads I stayed with the Polyglass GTs until I sold the GTX in 1977. I wish I kept the car........

they don't ride as good as belted radials but the look is worth paying attention while driving lol

Greetings djais1801! I ran F70X14 Polys on the steer axle and the H70X14 Polys on the drive axle the entire time I owned the car.

I never tried radials on my GTX. I believe the radial technology of the sixties and seventies sucked. I don't think the radial offerings then could hold up to a 4,000 pound vehicle traveling 100+ mph for any long distance.

My GTX did not have power steering. The F70 front tires made stationary and slow speed turning a real workout. The R6 scorch red GTX, black vinyl top and black interior got me plenty of girl time. I married the only girl who could drive, steer and shift that GTX.
 
Wow, that is an awesome 72 you have there. Beautiful from every angle. Thanks for posting!!
PS - I love your vanity plates too!

@multimopes, I just now realized @djais1801's car had vanity license plates. I thought they were regular ones when I first looked. Wow am I slow. Guess I didn't really pay attention. My stepdad used to have those on his cars, but the taxes in our damn state went up so he took them off.
 
Love the looks of this car with it's colour, tires, wheels, and yes even the vinyl top.
Nice job man.
