    Back in the day used 57 Plymouth full hubcaps on my 14" X frame chevy wheels. Thought they looked good.

    Flipper caps are simple and essential on post war kustoms . They are simple and effective as a kustom accessory. I don’t like highly ornamental caps as they become a weird distraction from the ride itself . They cover a great deal of the wheel and chromed they absolutely stun on the right ride . Here are mine on my 41 ford

    Not implying, stating as fact: the '56 Vicoria windshield is about 2" lower than the '55. It's the same windshield used on the Crown Vic of either year.

    '40 DeSoto: your avatar is intriguing, and I don't think I've ever seen that body style, either stock or chopped. Are there other photos of it elsewhere on the HAMB?

    I agree with you. The first factory spinners to achieve real popularity with hot rod/custom car guys, and they are still among the very best. I need one nice one for my wall collection!
