I have only had the pleasure of meeting Bob a couple of times myself but it is pretty cool hearing him speak and share stories. I especially enjoy the Tom Hoover stories as he grew up as his neighbor. A true gentleman and a A12 Six Pack Super Bee original owner.
Hall of Famer!

Had the pleasure of running into Bob and getting him and another guy off the board here [I can't remember his name, but think he owns the Butter Bee....I think.... my mind is still Jello after the show!  undecided] into MCACN during move in on Friday evening.   Bob and I chatted and he was giving me advice on the tuning of my carbs.  Finally had an opportunity to fine tune the Beater Bee's carbs and it's running great!!  Worked perfectly!  Imagine that!  Huh Grin. Thanks again Bob!!  Just wanted to post a props to ya!!   Smiley Smiley Smiley
 
Cheers
Dave

Kevin if you can handle the body and paint work go ahead.
If you had to depend on someone else to get it done on time I would pass.
My 1st body guy was at least a year off his promise of when it would be done.
I would hate for you to miss out going to the reunion.

Did they have 15" wheels? Cool

If so, there's a great set of wheels over here for ya! Roll Eyes

 
NO they didn't  Grin  They had little 14"'s  with skinny little E70's with a 375 HP rated 440 HP and less weight than a B-Body so it went nowhere when you push the pedal  Grin Grin. Only an auto trans available because they didn't have a Dana narrow enough for production.

Thanks guys!

Looks like I have a set of really nice replica H wheels to suit one of those really rare A12 Darts!  Wink

Sure to be heaps of those here in Australia...... undecided

Might be some Valiant owners that will like them.

 
Actually that would be "one of those really rare A13 M-Code Darts"....................which someone here just happens to have  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Chart/method if you want to double check yourself.
 
Surprising that the 5-lug is the only method that does not measure from lug center to lug center? undecided undecided But hey we can all use that as the excuse  Wink Cheesy I never knew that too, I always thought it was a drawing/illustration mistake Wink That would be approximately a half inch or 13mm shorter and make me think it was 4" instead of 4.5".

Bolt Pattern
 
 
5x114.3mm = 5x4.5 inches
 
 
I think the 5X4" bolt pattern is for the A-Body (Dart) ???
