 I just viewed a car @ wire wheels which seems reasonable (BRG Roadster 68)
 any comments on this car?   

I think that is a great year.  First year of all-synchro, yet the engine 
still gutsy.  But remember what must be a standard warning on wires--pull all 
of them and check hubs and wheels for the condition of the splines.  Sharp, 
angled edges on the splines are a certain predictor of, as Flight 
International calls it, a sudden, sharp "twang" one day in the not too 
distant future as both hub and splines strip.  Bill for that--if you do the 
labor--around $300 per wheel.
