In 1971 std would have been blackwall bias ply tires. There was an 
option for whitewall bias ply tires. There may have been an option 
for radials, but I don't know if these would have been whites or 
blacks or whether you had your choice.

My 71 US owner's manual shows blackwalls, but actually does not cover 
the Notchback. The Fastback came with 6.00x15L/4PR tires and I think 
the notch was the same. Radials would have been 165SR15s.
