@shewolfnm,
If you don't get any results, try contacting this place and see if they can identify them for you via the photo. They claim to have 100k of hubcaps in stock from dozens of makes so shouldn't have a tough time doing so.

@shewolfnm,
Is there any emblem in the dead center of the hubcap? can you show the whole hubcap please?
Im thinking STudebaker because they hqd several ARt Deco style caps in the 30's

A STudebaker woulda hd a big stylize "S" in the center (sorta like Supermans tee shirt)
Other than that, its gotta be some sort of art deco thing from an old brand(Packard, Franklin, Grahm -Page etc)

there is absolutely nothing in the center of them, no name, no mark, not even a number under the rim on the back.

i will get a photo later today and post it.

@farmerman,
they are amazing and beautiful.
I did nothing but take a wet rag to it and cleaned off the mud. Very few scratches, a little rust on the very edge but that is where it hooks to the wheel so you dont see it..
i just love these.
But have no clue what they are to.

It has been a very interesting lesson in hubcaps.. they belong to a 61 Fury

Glad you figured it out ms wolf. I looked a lot yesterday without joy. I was a little surprised there wasn't a hubcap encyclopaedia or 'what car lost that hubcap' site. Considering how many other things have collectors and fans. I guess the web does have limits.

@hingehead,
I smell website!!.
I was led down a wrong direction. I thought they looked art deco so I was stuck in the 30'and 40's.

@shewolfnm,
Interesting. My parents had a blue Fury station wagon in the early 60's that looked a lot like that, except the fins in back were more pointy. It had columns of push buttons on the dashboard that you pushed instead of using a gear shift.


I'll have to dig out some pictures of it and look at the hub caps.
