Can someone tell me where i can buy 57 Caddy hubcaps ???
Here, ebay, or swap meet...
Wow didn't realise they fetched that sort of money !!! nice though
My old man's got 3 sets but won't unass any of them!
I've seen nice original sets go for $600 ...
They sell all Cad stuff.
56's are way cooler and cheaper
But they won't fit anything but a '56 cad wheel...
I know where not to go!!
Yesterday I stopped at a hub cap place off I-70 just across the West Virginia state line into Pennsylvania and was meet by this old guy (my age I'd guess) he asked if he could help me and I said I'd like to look at old caps (something like that) he said "I don't do tours" I said you do money don't you? Then I turned around and got into my truck and drove off.
Sometimes these old guys are jerks!
im gona go with a set of the repos
Check the classifieds on here.I beleive Hellcat666 has some for sale.
Thanks for the heads up
I have a nice set of 54's if you're interested
Repros, but look really good
When I bought mine for The 51 Merc I had I managed to buy them one or two at a time and saved a bit of money over full sets at the Portland swap meet. It took a while though. I wish I would have saved them back and not let them go with the Merc as the guy who has it runs mags on it and has the caps on a 56 Chev two door post. Time to find a nice set of decent looking Chev caps and go trade I think.
Thanks for the offer, I wanted to put a set of 57's on my chrome rims on my roadster, What do 54's look like ???
Your roadster kicks ass!
That being said, don't put '57 Caddys on it...
Hubcaps don't "bite" too well into chrome wheels. You'll be better off finding another set of wheels that are painted so they can grip. Nice roadster!
there are differant repros some are cheapass china chrome that rust instantly and some are stainless like the original....................
