I borrowed these hubcaps from my dad for my 66 Wagonaire. I hit a bump on a highway today and lost one of them! I went back and searched and could not find it. A little scary walking down through the median of the 410 highway in Brampton Ontario.
Does anyone know where I can find 1 or some like it? I am told they were an upgrade option for studebakers in 64 or so.
I believe they were called Studebaker AeroStruts.
Thanks for you help!

Looks similar to the 1957 Dodge hubcaps.

them,Chinese of course,very close in appearance

Try John Dusky in South Carolina. I know he had a large stock of the late '64 wire wheel covers and may have the AeroStrut. His will be pricey, but...
I show his phone number as eight six four space nine four nine space nine nine six zero. His website is johndusky.com and his email address is studesouth at yahoo dot com.
Not that it helps now, but never run those covers on an old Studebaker rim, especially on a Wagonaire. The rims flex too much and those covers are heavy and very prone to going off on their own.
