    Not sure about the 14's but I usually see 15's like you've described go in the $800-$1200 range but you know,they're not good for much except shows and I wouldn't drive 5mph on them personally...

    This is one of the rare moments when John and I agree.

    scrap

    What would you pay for four bald tires? Same value, you can't drive on them.

    I really wouldn't think they would be good to anyone unless the car is a museum piece. For tires you can drive on, place like Coker make spot on reproductions so I don't see a lot of value here IMHO.

    That's fine - cosmetically, but they have been decomposing internally for over 40 years. They are organic.

    mount them and drive on them for about 10 minutes then take a look and see how much dry rot and cracks you see!!
