    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.

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

            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

                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.

                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                    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.

                      This is a quiz. Who can tell me what car the top wheel cover was used on?


                      Leonard Shepherd,
                      Take a look at the letters in the center of the cap, y'all: C M C: Checker Motor Car. BP
                      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                      Ayn Rand:
                      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
