^^^^^+1; modernizing is not always (some would say not often) an "upgrade", esp considering challenges like rear axle spacing, etc. Use the fact that you have the original parts as your starting point / selling point.

So what exactly is in "poor condition" wrt the wheels? Hub races scored? Braking surfaces on the rims shot? Way out of true? Hard to believe they're not worth overhauling, unless there are multiple problems with the rims AND hubs. Esp. if the hubs are good and would perk up with a bearing refresh, I would consider rebuilding, just to have one more thing original. Then just put the rest of the gruppo back on and sell as a "mostly original" C&V.
