I just recieved a catalog from Dragway in Australia.They have a nice selection of wheels that would look great on any early A body.They are a little high cost wise, even after the dollar conversion.I would be scared to ask shipping costs to the U.S.A.

Their catalog did not state it clearly if they carried the small pattern.I emailed them with that question.I will let you know what the result is.

Hi There people,

I do know a few guy's that have Dragway wheels on the early Valiants with small bolt pattern. Dragway make the wheels to suit your car if you want a different off set they will do it. I'm not sure but I would think that there would be a importer somewhere in the US that sells Dragways. Some of you may know the owner of Dragways daughter Rachelle Splatt she drives a Top Fuel dragster and has spent a lot of time in the US.

Hey folks,
I have just been contacted by Dragway.They told me that 5 on 4 inch is their standard valiant pattern,and they carry this pattern for all the wheels they sell.Now if I could find someone here in the U.S.A. that would sell them.They do have some nice styles.

Maybe we need to become the importers? What's it cost to ship a container loaded with stuff? Actually, I think shipping a car is cheaper, so you buy a wrecked but running minivan and stuff it full of goods...that's what everyone does.

That's not a bad idea Neil but you would be better importing utes as they seem to be very popular. fill the back with all sorts of parts. The guy who imported our car also makes reproduction parts (sadly for GM cars only) but he exports these parts back to the US. He is the largest GM parts supplier outside of the US. But as I said he is also a import/exporter. If you would like me to find out more info let me know.
