These are very rare. They are not the Mustang wire-wheel hubcaps that you are used to..although Ford made like 4 or 5 different types ... They don't come up very often. They are '65-'66 Mustang REAL WIRE WHEEL hubcaps... This guy is selling a MINT pair of them. These could be ordered through a dealer or over the FORD parts counter. Not the best looking cap, but the do look rather nostalgic and cool in their own way.. Personally, I like the regular '65-'66 wire wheel hubcaps.. There are quite a few original pieces of Ford Brochures touting these for the Mustang....This is stupid, but I remember that Whoopi Goldberg in the 1988 movie "Burglar" Drove a Pink '65-'66 Stang convertible wearing these caps..
These are the Rotunda wheels, I almost bought a NOS set but looked at the last second and they were 13". If you really want a cool set IMHO the "mag" hub caps look very nice. They look like the 68 Shelby hubcaps but are blank in the center or say Ford. (Watch out for the 15")
As usual - Rare often equals unpopular. These have to be IMHO the worst looking hubcaps ever made for a Mustang
I got 3 of them with a flip Mustang. The local guy had one so I could have made a set. But you're right they are FUGLY! The flip car was a 67cv. The new buyer took a pass at my FREE offering! Think I gave them away. They were supposed to be on some 64'5's as an option. There is a picture of one in the old Mustang book.....Mustang Does It!
On the subject of 15"'s. They did make a '65-'66 Wire wheel hubcap identical to the 14" version, but in 15" The outer lip is 1 inch wider. They are rare, and I had a set.. I sold them last year.. I had 3 of them for ten years before I found a 4th on Ebay, then I sold the whole set... They would have been really cool with 15" steel wheels, but I would have hated to have lost one... They were probably designed for the '65-'66 Galaxie...or Big Fords....As I said they looked identical to the 14" Mustang version...just a 1" wider outer lip.
