    I showed every marking on the tire in the 25 pics on the Ebay auction. If it's there, I'm not certain how to decode it, but more knowledgable people are always welcome to do that! This may be the date code:

    According to this chart I found it might be Aug 71:

    is the wheel sbp? that is a cool find-- I'll see if tire rack goes back that far on date coding a tire.

    Does anyone have knowledge as to the tire put on mopars back then? I'm sure any amount of change could affect the stock used on production vehicles.(strikes,embargoes & the like) Lawrence

    It is SBP. Never been repainted. Wheel date codes jan 8 71.

    Many FABO members have confirmed in PMs that their original 68-72 cars had Goodyear Power Cushions. I myself had a 68 with a 13 inch Power Cushion.

    Again, I did find this chart on the net for goodyear tires:

    Also, here's a duplicate link to the Ebay auction with more pics (25) than I could put on this site:

    Does it still hold air?

    I have tires that are 20 years old that are too dry rotted and won't hold air....
