Hubcaps wanted at Canby

Postby DRIVEN » Sun May 17, 2015 12:55 pm

I'm still looking for some useable hubcaps. I'd prefer Roadster caps but 520/521 caps are similar enough and certainly more common and affordable. Got a set? Maybe just a couple? Even just one? I'm interested. Obviously conditions will dictate what I'm willing to pay. I'm planning to be at Canby Saturday morning with some cash in my pocket. Hopefully we can work something out.

This is the style I'm looking for...

Thanks for looking.

You should just find a set of 620 hubcaps for now, there are way more of them out there.
There are 3 roadster hubcaps on ebay right now, but they are undetermined shape and they want almost $111.00 shipped.

Here is something I just found, $32.20 for the pair shipped.

What are they worth to you, Jess?


I'm still/always looking for things for my 521. AND, and have plans for different wheels anyways.

PM coming your way.



...and I'm not necessarily stopping at 4. If I need to buy 8 or 10 to put together a nice set, so be it.

Thanks. I've got a deal worked out with bill and Keith but I might pick up more depending on condition of the set I'm picking up at Canby. I'll keep an eye on the ad.

if these hubcaps don't sell and you still want them, I know him personally and might be able to get them even cheaper.

Those do look great, and if the price doesn't go up much they're a deal ... so I won't bid on them, and I hope no one else does too!

They're up to over $140 with 12 hrs to go. I'll check in after work but it looks like I may let them go. As pretty as they are, I'm not sure I can justify the expense.

That's to much unless they are damned near perfect, they are not really that great of a style of cap, the 620 caps look better in my opinion.

I actually prefer the style in the auction and they are very nice. Just being a cheapskate I guess.

Would have been $172.65 to my door. I'll keep looking.
