    Wondering if someone could help me identify the year, make and model on these 10 inch Chevy Hubcaps. I got them at an auction last Friday and someone said they look like Truck ones, maybe in the 40's or 50's. They measure a little over 10-1/2 inches in diameter. Here's a pic:

    Any helpful comments, even nicknames for these or background info is not only greatly appreciated, but I'll make sure I 'LIKE' your comment.

    Thank you!!!
     
  2. Looks like about a Nova cap, to me. Not that old. 1970s, I believe.

    Picture of the back would tell us what era it's from.

    I agree with 31Dodger. '73/'74 era.

    Nah, I googled '73-'74 Nova Hubcap and they don't look anything like that.

    You guys just pulling my chain here?

    If anyone knows the application, thank you for the info.

    might be a few years later, but definitely 70s Nova. And they are not very common today.

    I agree. The plain Jane Nova caps looked a lot like the old Chevy pick up caps. Maybe not even Nova.....but mid 70's for sure. Gary

    If they weren't in a big pile like that, they might be worth money one day. I scrapped mine, they looked like crap after laying in my backyard for 20 years.

  12. I sell quite a few, actually. Guys love to come over and dig through the pile(s) and see what there is in there. They are mostly stainless, so the weather won't hurt 'em much.

    Those hubcaps came on a '73 Nova my sister bought new and I bought from her. I still have them in the barn.

  16. 72-75 or thereabouts, base hubcap for plain jane Nova, Chevelle, probably even the cheaper full size models (Bel Air).

    They are easily dinged and hard to find in nice shape, will fit any GM wheel with nubs for a snap-on cap. Because the average joe wouldn't recognize them, they can look slick on an older Chevrolet in place of plain baby moon caps.

    There is also a Pontiac version; not sure if Buick and Olds got them or used a different design.

    You guys are going to call me crazy, but that cap also came on early Camaros......I have one at home that still has the GM part number on it, and I looked it up. I think it shows up as early Camaro, Nova, Chevelle, and mostly the basic, 6cyl granny cars.

  18. '70 or '71 Nova for sure. The last set I had was on my '67 Impala SS around 1975.

    6274292 fits 71-73 Nova, 70-73 Camaro, 71-73 Chevelle. Not the big cars. This info is from the Chevy parts book. It's not listed in the truck parts book.

    Those caps look like after market stuff I had seen in the late 60's and 70's,
    just some thing to consider.
