The 1963 factory service manual lists the available sizes as 6.50 x 13, 6.50 x 14 and 6.00 x 15. I would imagine the ’62 is probably the same. When my dad bought our 1963 in 1974 it still had the original spare (6.50 x 14). It was discarded years ago because it was dry rotted. The white wall was between 3/4″ to 1″ wide. I can’t remember what brand it was. Coker Tire makes a replica of B.F. Goodrich Silvertown bias ply tires and the whitewall on those is 7/8″ wide.
