need picture of Kelsey-Hayes wheel on 66-67 galaxie w/ disk brakes

I have I suspect; a pair of kelsey hayes wheels that fit the 66-67 galaxies and such with the big 4 piston disk brakes
problem is I'm not sure about them

I want to throw them up on ebay to sell, but I need to be sure they are what I think

Does anyone have a confirmed pic they could share of the front and back of a KH wheel off a 66 67?

this is what I have




Also I have a suspected mid 70's era police interceptor wheel 6 1/2 wide.




what I really need is to confirm the KH wheels as disk brake units


thanks for the help

I recieved this from Adrian Clements when I asked him about the disc brakes on my car, hope it helps.

"Your disc brake calipers are so large that they require special Kelsey-Hayes disc brake wheels, Ford part number C5SZ-1007-A, to clear them. These disc brake wheels are 15" in diameter and 5.5" bead to bead. There are also station wagon and police car disc brake wheels, Ford part number C6AZ-1007-B, that are 15" in diameter and 6.0" bead to bead.
Either of these disc brake wheels can be readily differentiated from the standard drum brake wheels because the slots between the center disc of the wheel and the rim are almost non-existent on the disc brake wheels. This space on the drum brake wheels is large enough to get your finger tips into, but on the disc brake wheels, you can only fit something as thin as a hack saw blade in there."

I have some pics of a '68 wagon with discs but I guess they were different in '68. Wheels look more standard. I've been debating for a while if I should go pull all the disc stuff off that wagon to convert my '68 Gal. Maybe some day...
