The hub caps fitted appear to have been made in the early 1950s but I am not sure by who, maybe Dallas Winslow? My Cord had a set as shown in the attached picture which was taken in Auburn in 1957 with Gordon Buehrig .
This is one of best pictures.
I believe running with these hub caps is not such a good idea . The holes in the production hub caps helped to cool the brakes.

Terry, I have a complete set of these non vented hub caps. They appear to never have been installed and not chromed. They are in great shape. Been told they are the Winslow covers but does anyone really know???

I don't believe Dallas Winslow reproduced parts, particularly something that would have a die that size. He has his hands full with Graham and ACD parts.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
