    It took me almost four years to find a set of 16" flipper hubcaps for my coupe. I finally found a set. I had been looking for a set of 16" that fit like the standard hubcap, where it fits the full wheel. I found quite a few that were in the 14" size range that covered the middle part of the wheel, like the hollywood and national brand flippers. Also I was lucky enough to pick up a set of pristine 16" Lyons wheel covers. It seems like in the late 50's there were a lot of hot rods running hub caps and that's the period I was going for.

    '56 Ford optional accessory caps, I believe. When the cars were current, most of them wore these.

    Some Lancers on one of my projects "The Sweet Heart Roadster". Chrome 15" wheels with the polished caps gives a cool look I think. I need to get back on this one! chromedrums1.jpg chromedrums2.jpg
