Yes, that's right. Checker used the Studebaker stamping after Studebaker folded. That didn't take long!

I've seen some Checker wheel covers similar to the '64 Stude wheel covers, but not this style. [8D]

I drove an employer's early '70s International Travel-all (sp?) that had caps similar to the '64s as well.

International used the Studebaker stamping design for wheel covers that appeared on the Travelall circa 1969-1972 or thereabouts.

Definitely a Checker. My Dad bought a Checker Station Wagon new in 1963. I still have the wheelcovers from it. The centers are the same, but mine are smooth toward the outer edges, no radiating spokes. So Checker was already using the tooling while Studebaker was still in business.

In 2002, at the same time the Stude International Meet was being held in South Bend, the national Checker meet was also being held up the road in Kalamazoo; Checker's home town. There was a Checker or two with the Stude-like hubcaps staying at the Motel 6 I stayed at in South Bend, and with a few other '59-'63 Studes there, a comparison was easy:D

Please - forgive an old geezer if you've bumped into these images on the internet before.[8][V]

Here's the evolution of the 64 - 65 Studebaker wheelcovers after the design was picked up by International.

When I purchased the original tools for making the 1959-63 wheel covers I got the tool for the Checker center emblem but had to have the Stude center "S' tool remade. I made a couple of hundred covers with the Checker emblem and sold them to a Checker parts dealer. Wish there were more parts that interchanged.

Leonard Shepherd,

:) Take a look at the letters in the center of the cap, y'all: C M C: Checker Motor Car. :DBP
