All I can tell you is this is the factory-correct wheel cover for this make and model of CC.
A Mercedes-Benz of some kind
Maybe a Mercedes-Benz W108.
Looks a lot like a Falcon Futura.
My answer: Goodyear bias ply whitewall. 🙂
I’ve owned a few mid-1960’s Mercedes-Benz and that wheel cover doesn’t look familiar; the slots around the edge are too small. My first impulse was to guess late 50’s or early 60’s Chevy but, again, the slots are too small.
I’m going Ford Granada, because its ads tried to point up the similarities between it and a W126, which of course was ludicrous…and a W126 is too easy.
(Edit: Granada, not Monarch)
I’ll tell you what it isn’t, and that’s a Benz …
Looks a lot like a 63 Ford.
Completely OT, but apparently the Google knows it’s been volvo week. I live in San Diego but tonight I am in Houston and the ad on this page is the Houston Volvo truck dealer. (Cue Twilight Zone music)
Ditto. It’s either a Volvo power chip, good for 60 hp and an extra 7 mpg, or Isabelle, the newest American Girl Doll of the Year.
Austin A60 Cambridge – about 1962
1961 Chrysler 300G.
Its not a Granada either
1961 Impala/full size Chevrolet.
My guess is Chevy as well.
I’m with ^^Fred^^ on the 1963 Ford Galaxie…
I’m getting a Ford vibe – it looks similar to the wheelcovers on my old MkI Escort.
MK1 Cortina Deluxe
I bet its on a 63 Ford Galaxie 4 door ! 😛
