Good question :)

Snapshot saved the deb7u16 update as part of wheezy-security in 2018:

There's a modified copy of Wheezy LTS as part of the ELTS project
(deb7u19, 2019):

I also see there's a copy of Squeeze LTS in the Debian archive:
and a copy of Wheezy pre-LTS (2016):
but there's no copy of Wheezy LTS.

Anybody knows if there's an archived copy of Wheezy LTS/pre-ELTS?
