    FIFTY bucks for a "dog dish" cap! I'm RICH!!!
    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

      That is a cool site. Could have saved me a few weeks eBaying and hoping for a good result. Cheers.

        Reconditioned Wheel Covers!

        Not too shabby! I am impressed with their Studebaker Hubcap/Wheelcover knowledge, coverage and quality.
        I only found about 3 errors in the year ranges of them, but with the good Pics and Video you should be able to tell what you need.

        I have never heard of a Co. fully reconditioning hub caps to new condition before.

              Per Studebaker Service Letter C-1963-1, dated January 17, 1963, two different types of "wheel hub covers" (their terminology) were used on 1963 Lark models. The first and most common is part # 1558738. But, as stated in the Service Letter, "Should you encounter a condition of the wheel hub cover becoming detached from the front wheel during vehicle operation and if it is of the type shown as 'A', install four wheel hub covers, Part Number 1559379, of the type as 'B' shown in the illustation." The 1559379 cover resembles the standard 1959 cover, but is not the same. Although the Service Letter doesn't say, I would always see the 1559379 covers installed on "disc brake wheels" so that wheel design may not have held the 1558738 covers securely.

                That would be the '63 Stude. Caps, the ugly ones 1538738! That is their # STD1.

                That explains why Ted Harbit has '62 Hawk Wheel Covers on the '63 Lark R3 Custom 2 dr. Sedan, "the Tomato".

                In my opinion the best looking Center Caps are the '60 type 1548689, their # STD2.

                Brand new ones are at Studebaker Vendors at: http://studebakervendors.com for a lot less.

                    Yes, the picture indeed shows a 1559379.

                          They obviously aren't that smart, the one they are showing as a 59-64 airflow is NOT a Studebaker cap. Studebaker airflow covers do not have ribs around the outer edge of the cone shaped center. And where are the aero-struts? I need one! :-)

                            How good of an AeroStrut hub cap do you need? I have four used ones somewhere and could check thier condition and see if one would meet your needs.
