    i got this response from the CLC forum. trying to fit my cherry '56 caps on '51 wheels. NO GO.

    From the "part number" point of view, talkless of long-wheelbase cars and Eldoradoes :

    - 1948 to 1955 wheels have the same part number (#145 9660)
    - 1956 have a # of their own (#146 4276)
    - 1957-60 have another one (#146 9869)
    - 1961-64 still another one (#147 6584)

    So if 56 hubcaps fit 1961 wheels, they should fit at least any (non-eldo) 1956-64 wheel.

    (I got these numbers from my 1966 parts list)

    Also, the Caddy wheels are 5 on 5 bolt, so you may have a problem mounting them as well.
