Just wanted to make one addendum to Gabe's reply. Pre-74 cars came with chrome hubcaps to cover the stock steel wheels.
: The rims you have are stock for a 74-76 2002, and I believe were used on the 320 also. Size is 13" x 5". For your '72tii, the stock steel rims are also 13" x 5", but are the earlier style, with 4(?) cutouts around the edge instead of 8. Regular 02's before 74 also had the earlier style, but were 13" x 4.5". Probably more than you wanted to know, but the wheels you have will work fine. Nice car by the way!
: : Hello everyone,
: : After driving a 71 2002 in college 14 years ago, I vowed to get another someday, and that day finally arrived last week. I took the plunge with a 72 tii I found in Eugene, Oregon. If anyone's interested, I posted a photo at www.webpak.net/~jenscott/tii.jpg. (Can anyone tell me if those wheels were OE on a 2002 back then? They're awfully clean, almost suspicously so.) Anyway, I've already gleaned a ton of much-needed info from the archives and hope I can add something pertinent someday. And if you know anyone parting out a clean interior...
