    14" wheels?

    Will a 14" wheel fit on the front of the Cordoba?

    I've done that before. If it's only a bit, it's no big deal. Mom pretty much over engineered this stuff anyways. Just do a smooth rounded grind and it'll be fine.

    I wouldn't put 14 inch wheels on the front anyways. Most of the weight over the front you'd be better off going with minimum 15" anyways and as someone mentioned the caliper interferes with the wheel anyways.

    Sorry doba77, I was afraid of that.

    FYI...the 11.75" rotor (with caliper bracket which pushes the caliper out far enough to get around that larger rotor, hence the caliper interference with 14" wheels) became optional mid-'76, and std. in late '76 on all Cordobas, small block and big block.

    I'm fairly certain small block late B's you can put 14's on due to the caliper size as mentioned above. Big block car equated to bigger calipers. Like with anything MoPar though, "it depends" rule applies. It depends if somebody knew somebody at the dealer, swapped later on in life, guy on the assembly line ran out of smaller ones, etc etc.

    Do this however...... and we'll all be lining up to slap you silly.

I got the 15's and 14's at a swap meet for 125 bucks for the set, I damn near ran out of the place cause I felt like I stole them. The cheapest I've been able to find a pair of them around here recently is 400 bucks.
    I had some 14's that I sold a few years ago....of course like always it was just before the prices went through the roof lol

    The slots I have on the rear of the Cordoba are 15's, but the fronts I have are a 14x7. I bought them staggered because they were originally going on my Mustang. I'll try them out tomorrow and report in!
