    All,

    I'm going for a 40's to early 50's mild custom look for my 41 Convert.

    Can someone ID and date these wheel covers? I was told Calnevar, but they are different from the others I have owned.

    They fit a stock 16" Ford rim nicely. Before I go to $$$ to restore 'em, I wanna be sure they are era correct for my plans.

    Many thanks

    I'm guessing aftermarket circa late-'40's - late- '50's". Can you see anything on the inside lip ? Look kind of like a set of Lyon caps I have. I think they'd look real nice on your ride.
     
  4. These were sold at all the Western Auto Stores in So Cal in the late 40's and 50's and were the best looking full moons, Lyon hubcaps were not popular back then, these Moons and real Cad hubcaps were the deal.

    Thanks guys, much appreciated. There are no marks or decals on the underside.
     
  6. Similar to 1950 DeSoto, but I would go with the "aftermarket" identification DeSoto wheel cover.jpg .
