Firestone Sport Car 200 E70 15 Tires - Decode

I need help decoding a couple of original E70 15 Firestone Sport Car 200 tires from a 1969 Camaro Z/28. I posted this on Yenko.net however came up empty. There has been plenty of discussion on other treads about the perils of driving on original tires so to be clear I only intend to use them for stationary show and for a spare tire (non-use). I am also curious about the current market value of these tires (individually). One has 50% wear with some sidewall cracking and the other about 1,000 miles and is cosmetically strong.

Coker Tire reproduces that tire (Firestone SC200 RWL - E70-15 ) Call them, they might have some answers for you.

Dennis, thanks for the suggestion. I sent Coker an email and they responded they might be able to help, I sent them the pictures and am awaiting their answer.

The one with 50 percent wear may be worth $100- 150 the other if the tread looks new is worth a lot more. I have a bunch of Goodyear E70s that are like NOS and some that are worn. the worn ones i did not pay more than $1oo. for.

Dennis, Coker was a dead end, they replied today they can't date decode a Firestone tire produced prior to 1970. The SC200 was a 1 year only tire.
