In 1930 Chevrolet had two different hubcaps. On the solid disc rims or wood wheels they had a small diameter aluminum cap that screwed directly onto the wheel hub. The wire wheel was first introduced as standard equipment in 1930. For this a new wheel a newly designed hubcap was made.
This is an exact copy of the original. It has a steel backing with spring clip retainers to hold it solidly on the wheel. The front face is a stamped brass skin crimped over the steel back, just like the factory made them. The skin is triple chrome plated and the Bowtie and trim recess band are painted black, as original. These are truly a show quality reproduction.
