Default What color were the wheels originally on my 1962 K1000 Suburban?

The exterior is Pearl Gray, which I assume is what it came as. It has the 17.5" wheels and white grill and bumpers. Very early 1962 production I think.

My '62 is also Pearl Gray with Olympic White trim around the windows. VIN is K1001CJ1121A. How does that compare to your VIN?

I've concluded the original wheels were black.

May have been that the 17.5 wheels were black. No reason anyone would have ever painted them since new other than me, and I've owned it since 1978. Little reason for the wheels to have been painted in its first 17 years of life since it was a university owned vehicle kept at their field camp in Wyoming and used two months a year in the summer and stored many of those 17 years.

All evidence on the remaining paint is they were never anything other than black.

My original white wheels were 15". My spare is still mounted on one of them. The other four are long gone.
