Default Oldsmobile Wheel Covers

These where used as far as know only for 2 years 64/65. The caps are fairly easy to come by. The wheels which are unique to this cap are almost impossible to find. I have 5 wheels 5 caps and 4 extra spinner caps. Looking for anyone's idea of value? Thanks

Nice looking! I am no expert, but I would think that if someone needs them, the package should be a bargain at a grand and probably more, but you need to find the person who needs them. They sure would be a nice addition to the looks of an Olds of the period.

Default Covers

The N93 option wheel covers consisted of cast aluminum mag-style wheel covers which bolted on to special steel wheels, the bolt circle was then covered with this snap-in spinner hubcap. This option was only offered on full size 88, 98, and Starfire cars in 1964 and 1965.
Found this info , same info I have .Pretty sure it is accurate. I need 14 ww for the 65 .Any 14,s I have found are crazy money in the size I need. I have a set of 15 cc rims I think I, am going to use and just go with 15 tires for the moment.

I remember seeing a full set of these wheel covers on a '65 Olds Jetstar 88 at John's Auto Salvage in Cabool, MO years ago. I haven't been back to that yard in at least 8 years, so have no idea if they are still there. I am sure that they could have been had for $10- $20 each at that time.

You don't want to put 2.25" WW tires on your '64 Chev anyway, Ed.
