Y88 with Rally Wheels?
« on: July 14, 2008, 10:02:36 PM »
Could a Y88 have rolled off the line with Rally wheels?  I would think no.

None as Rally's were not part of the Y88 package

There were not part of the Special Editions, but you could order them for it.  So, Yes, you could have a Y88 with Rally rims on it.  I have also seen Y81's and Y82's with Rally rims on them.  I can come up with photos of the Black ones if you want.

Car Distribution Bulletin 78-F-8 dated Oct 5 1977 introduces the Gold Special Edition Package Y88 and clearly states Gold 15x7 cast aluminum wheels or 15x8 with WS6 as part of the package.  Car Distribution Bulletin 78-F-14 established with MSRP for the package at $1,259.00.  No other pricing less cost of aluminum wheels was ever released for the Y88 package.

You are correct in stating 1977 Y81 and Y82 cars were available with Gold Rally II Wheels.  UPC Code N67 was introduced with Car Distribution Bulletin 77 F-9 Dec 2 1976.  Revised Y81 & Y82 pricing with N67 was set at $435.00 and $1,022.00 repectively.  No need for pics as I have them too as well as build sheets.

I have a 1977 SE, Y81 originally ordered with Rally wheels so yes, it is possible.

Yeah it was 4 or 5 years ago maybe that he sent them to me so I have to find them.  It was a member here on the Forum, Mike M from NY.  Have to remember his Forum user name too.  Solargold78 maybe....?
