I made several pairs of these tie down loops that fit a VW IRS car. They mount on the lower shock bolt and provide the perfect place to tie the car down if hauling. Allows the car's suspension to move when hauling on a rough trailer! 1/4" thick steel.

Great idea - better than bending tie rod ends or light plastic car flying off a trailer. New cars all have those screw in tow eyes front and rear - noting on older cars though.
Will these tie downs work on a 1963 356/?
I'll bet they'd hit the wheels on a 356. I'd get different ones. Also, on a swing axle you don't want to cross the rear straps, the rear end will jack up.
I think Danny is correct above. They will not fit. Not only will they interfere with the tire, they are shaped to fit the IRS shock mount in such a way to prevent rotating on the stud. Thank for the inquiry and sorry they will not work.
Here is something that may work:
Thank you James for the reply, I think the Reenline hooks will work, I will post again after I install them.
Those are pretty cool!
Could you use them to pull the car out of a jam.
I have had my car platform hauled ,unfortunately a few times and they use cotton wheel wraps on it but I wonder if that would do the same but be easier to attach to the platform... always pays to be ready.
It was for you so all I would need is to get bolts that are longer and a lock washer.
