I haven't decided on wheels. I have a 4" lowering kit yet to be installed, so I will be going with larger wheels and tires. My initial thought was to make a wood version of the hub caps like the '66 model. But I may go with custom wheels.
I finished the front part of the floorboard and the "firewall". (The panel for the headlight switch and key is temporary while I decide what to do for a dash panel.)
I weighed the body panels before installing them and they totaled about 120 lbs - less than an adult passenger. I don't know what the stock fiberglass body weighs. I would guess that a fiberglass Bronco body would be in the ballpark. It is all stock underneath - you can see in the photos that I posted - although everything has been refurbished and many new parts such as shocks, brakes, brake cables, ball joints, and all wiring. I do have a 4" lift kit that I will be installing, along with bigger wheels and tires. It runs at 12 mph right now; it should be 14-15 with the larger wheels and tires. I was not after speed on this build. Although not strictly legal, many people cruise the neighborhood here in Florida in their carts; that is what I intended with this build.
