  • Mystery Hub Caps on a '55

    Here's a mystery for us to solve!

    On this nice two-tone Blue '55 Commander Sedan in Amarillo, TX

    WHAT car do these HUBCAPS belong to, if they are on the original wheels they would be the size to fit the type of wheels with removable Clips.

    Canadian 1958?, Checker?, International? They really do not look like Studebaker at all, but not much else would fit!

    Here is the link to the ebay ad showing the other three in different lighting, maybe someone can tell what is in the centers.

      The outer and smooth mid portion (tapered) is very similar to a '59 Lark, but the raised ring around the center is like NO Studebaker I have ever seen. So it was undoubtedly made by the same vendor that made the '59-'66 small center caps for Studebaker, Checker and International and maybe others except of course GM, they never BUY anything, they just make it in one of their subsidiaries.

        I'd say they Datson pickup.
