My ‘63 was purchased with the factory chrome rims. ‘Never saw a car with hubcaps installed on the chrome rims ... would certainly harm the chrome.

We installed chromed “spider” plates and lug nuts to cover axle ends.

After a few years of salted winter roads in Northern Indiana, rust won out.

My favorite Wheel. Of course mine were just aftermarkets, but closely resembled the factory style.

We would only run ours in the nice weather. Once cold weather hit, we went back to painted wheels with Dog dish caps, until Spring again.

Those painted wheels would be Deep Dish Wagon wheels, if we could find them.

You're right Ray. I didn't wreck that one too bad. Some bitch ran a red light and hit me in the left rear quarter though. Friggin cops acted like it was my fault. Nice car 327, 3 on the tree. Traded it for the 68 Nova I couldn't afford.

Seems like early 67 to June 68. Like they say, I should have kept it, but Nova's were the rage around town. Herd mentality.
Belive me I know how that works, some I let get away in that time period, 1962 Dodge Polara 500, 361 bigblock, 1956 Dodge Polara 500, 315 Hemi, and a couple of 57 Chevy's. Others but not as notable were 1962 Pontiac Catalina convertible and a 1966 Austin Healey 3000 mark III. Well poop.
