Im looking for a set of correct wheelcovers for my 56 Transtar,the same moon ones used on 50 cars.There available as re pos and I understand their very nice,but quite pricey.It settle for some decent ones,small dents OK.

I have 2 from a '52-- full disc 15", are they the same? They are smooth disc,with the stude 'crest in the center.

Trucks used the dog dish style, not the full covers.

JDP,thats kinda what I thought he was looking for,I have 1 dog dish,but Jenny won't give it up!!! Transtar,watch e-bay,i know the lark dogdishes don't bring much.But yours are probably a little more rare.[actually,in this area,we call dogdishes 'Hubcaps',full cover are 'Wheelcovers'

Probably a good thing those bullitnoses aren't near my house,I'd be trying to drag them home!!

52 Hawk, Have you ever noted the bulletnose that is just West off of I-39 North of Bloomington? It has been sitting there for many years.

Mike W-- Yes I have,a few times. I stopped there to look at it one day,the guy told me go ahead!! It's rough,needs everything.Stupid me didn't ask if it was for sale,but it's not really feasable to repair any way. Quite a yard ornament though. I think it's exit 10,Hudson ,Il.... It was still there a year ago.
