    They often show up on Ebay, and at the swap meets, if and when we get them going again.
    But posting your inquiry here may motivate someone with a set to part with to respond.

      I think they might be the AC-2799 Style/Type; (called "Spoke Type") seen most often on 1955's since they were Standard Equipment on Speedsters.
      They ARE Listed for 1956 to 1960 Models.


      UPDATE: The Wire Wheel Covers are AC-2425
      The AC-2799 are "Spoke Type" Wheel Covers.

      We DO have a "For Sale" and "Wanted Forum" you can use, if you choose the header "Prefix"; "Parts Wanted".

        Rich I believe that you are combining two things. The wire wheelcovers pictured are for 1953 - early 1956. Late 1956 - 1960 had the spoke style (imitation wire) as an option.

          Yes that IS possible, I have a Set of "Simulated" Spoke Type, if THAT is the AC-2799, then it's not the "WIRE" Wheel Cover.
          Neither are available New anymore in any Quantity, only the Caps for the Wires.

          UPDATE: Yep, you made me look Gary!
          The Wire Wheel Covers are AC-2425 only listed for some reason for '55 & '56 in the '55 to '58 Chassis Parts Catalog. But I know that the later printed Price and Accessories Price List Book "F"'s, listed Both of them for more years, to sell off stock.

          The "Simulated" Spoke" Covers are AC-2799, like these:

            Been looking for years at every swap meet and advertisement. Easier to find hens teeth and if you do get a lead or see something on E-Bay they are usually to well used and overpriced to be suitable. Maybe I am too particular, but good luck anyway.

              There were no wire wheel covers optional for 1960. If you are referring to the simulated spoke type, Rich mentioned that he has those and I have some used ones.

                  No (at least not without modification or changing to earlier wheels).
