Yeah, this would be a great upgrade for those wishing to go plus 1 on their Classics. You could fit a 255/50/17 tire as a almost exact match for overall height and the bolt pattern is 115x5, perfect. There is a slight difference on different model years, but they all look very similar to the one pictured. I believe it's also available in chrome, either looks pretty darn nice.
A quick check online shows that there isn't much of a bargain vs any other aftermarket wheels, the cheapest I saw was $200 ea. used on Craigslist. You may find them cheaper locally. 255/50/17 tire selection is pretty slim, I found BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDWS and Kumho ECSTA ASX in all seasons, a few more in summer only's, I would find either of these tires very suitable, others may not. There is more of selection in 235/55/17 which gives you a pretty wide selection and is OEM size for 2nd Gen cars.
