    Is the single most important detail you left out .

    8 Lug Steel Wheels

    It depends on what diameter you want ~ 15" , 16" or larger .

    There's a list of what was available when new , maybe at : The Old Car Manual Project .com ?.

    Or an owner's booklet , in the back part .

    I wish I could be of more help , sorry .

    I assume everyone would want the tubeless type.
    61-63 hubcaps are the same design. 3/4 & 1 ton require 8 5/8 inner diameter hubcap that is also thicker than the 1/2 ton versions. see comparison picture below.

    Time For :

    SWAP MEETS ~ I was at the A.T.H.S. Show Sunday last and saw two of these ~ .

    I also bought the *one* he had for my '69 C/10 , only $5 , dent free although it was filthy and had light surface rust .

    Good info Woog !

    I was about going crazy with all the excuses and lies my painted kept giving me about my 7 original '67 ~ '72 hub caps , it turns out he simply hadn't bothered to even look for the damn things ~ I went by Friday after work to see if it'll be ready for pickup on Monday , my Son said ' I know it's a pisser pop but he's done the paint & rust repair work you like so let it go ' ~

    I was flabber gasted to walk into his office and see him carefully hand cutting the painter's tape on one of them to make the black mask.....

    Sheesh .

    of course now I'm getting the same Okey-Doke about the factory assembly manual he never looked at and now claims I never gave him :eek: .
