A tire that old, unless it has had special attention paid to it's storage, is dangerous and should only be used for static display. The only person those tires may be of value to is someone looking for that specific brand, model and size and even then only if they're in excellent shape.

For the Cragar SS's, look at eBay, Hemmings or local automotive swap meets and shows. There are plenty of them still floating around out there.
