    Thanks for the info '50Fraud, I went to the big auction site and found a few sets for sale; I guess I don't need them after all, lol, $600 for a set of "okay condition" hubcaps is ridiculous. I'll stick with my chrome rings and baby Moons for awhile, I'm spending all my fun money on the '51 Ford re-wiring and updating the interior a bit.

    I like little caps and rings better on prewar cars.

    54 Chrysler New Yorker or 55 Studebaker. Haven't decided which I like better. Thinking Chrysler since I will be running a 354 hemi. KIMG0132.jpeg KIMG0133.jpeg

    Kool thread.... I’m thinking (today) a ‘55 Buick cap with a drawer pull mounted in the center of an after market port hole is Sexy.

    I noticed the Ford center cap too...pretty cool for sure. I’ve been contemplating putting the chrome bullets on my Plymouth caps as on this 48 Merc. IMG_5725.JPG

    But a few weeks ago I came across the 30/31 Model A caps and at only 4-1/8” OD and 3/4” high. IMG_5819.JPG
    They might look cool... paint the ribs gold on the Plymouth center and paint the center ford cap red leaving the script polished stainless. IMG_5726.JPG
