1973 Dodge full wheel covers

Recommended Posts

Didn't some of the original  MPC pickups have a similar wheelcover?

That most certainly is them. I found a video on gluetube, showing somebody unpacking the contents of the above kit.

When he pulls out the chrome tree, yup there they are. I doubt I'd find any originals, but maybe someone has resin cast some.

I'll definitely be keeping my eyes out. Thanks for the help! ;)

Some of the MPC 1970's Dodge van kits included these covers.

Sets of four do show up on eBay every once in a while.

None of the van kits had a wheel cover like those in the '73-'75 pickups.  The one in the earlier van kits resembled an earlier full size car wheel cover, more like a '69 or '70 piece.

No, those are the AMT original issue '65 Dodge wheelcovers; also found on the clear trailer.

Thank You.

Now, I know what those are!  Odd that they should live on in a semi-forgotten trailer kit, of all places.
