    Trying to I.D. a wheel center cap off my 40 Ford Pick Up. Has no markings. It is 6 and 3/4 inches wide. The hole it fits into is 6.25 inches. See pic. Thanks in advance. I have ONE that is beyond cleaning. I need only one. cap.jpg 20151206_155048.jpg 20151206_172756.jpg cap.jpg 20151206_172756.jpg

    WTF kind of wheel center is that?
    I can see your lug pattern is later, as in '49-'72 Ford pass. car? (5 on 4.5" pattern)

    1. a veteran died today

    yep we call them Sheriff Car hubcaps,
    Big demand in my small hometown, think there was three sets on sheriff cars,
    same ones made the rounds on about 20 different cars.

    No fence around Sheriff Cars in those days.

  6. ...I agree, they look like aftermarket caps very similiar to the police rally caps but they mount on outside nubs on the rim, unlike rally centers.

    looks like a piece of tube wielded to the center of the wheel to run rally cap
     
  8. i still got 8 of those origional police caps. 4 i found in a flagstaff junkyard in the mid 70's from a white 1967 2 door post biscayne with bucket seats and 396 automatic and also 4 on a 1968 4 door white bel aire sedan (supposedly an ex fbi car) owned by a NAU student.

    Rally caps rely on nubs to ensure the cap stays on the wheel and it appears your fabricated wheel rings do not have them. Add some weld beads or something similar to get nubs on your rings or you will continue losing caps:

    It is called a McLean Cap Part#7MC from Rally Amrica. I ditched them anyway, too cheap, thin and lightweight. Ended up going with Vintique V8 caps in polished SS. Much nicer. caps.jpg v8whhels.jpg
