Everyone knows about the old Erskine factory that burned down in
Detroit, right? This old pully came out of there, looks like it got a
little hot...

BTW, that hubcap is made of aluminum, and is about 10" in diameter. Does anyone know what it fits? Thanks.

I've got a couple of those hub caps Matt. They're for a Simca. A french-built import of the early 60s.;)

Since I collect Stude hub caps, I've had several folks kindly contribute one of those to my display.[B)] Nice gesture and I DO have a couple of different versions just because they DO look like they belong on a Stude![}:)]

THANKS Mr. Biggs! I've been wondering that for 5 years or so now! I paid all of 2 dollars for it. Is it worth anything?

I doubt you could get 50 cents for it on ebay. [xx(] It's worth more than that just to snag folks by asking them what model Stude it fits![:0][:p]:D

I agree with you there. I've looked at every model car Stude ever built, trying to figure out what this thing fits. Then I thried to think of every other car that starts with a "s". Never heard of a Simca though. Once again, thanks for clearing that up. Should have knew that you would have known...

Simcas were imported by Chrsyler in the early-mid 60s as part of the first "compact" ar boom. In fact, I think the firms was the French arm of Chrysler...like Rootes in the U.K.

I have fond memories of doing zany teen-ager antics in a Simca[:p]. One of my boyhood buddies used to use his Mom's Simca all the time when we were out razin' heck[}:)]. It was either that or his Dad's 61 Rambler American.:D
Buddy's name was Bob as well and I remember Bob would stomp the pedal in that little, flathead-powered American and the two of us would exaggeratingly feign being being thrown over the seat backs by the "pretend" acceleration.[:I]
Crazy damned kids!:(
