Correct '58 T-Bird Wheel covers?

As far as I can tell, the caps that you are looking for are the same ones used on the full sized Fords in '58.

The only source that I know of for these wheel covers would be the AMT '58 Ford annual, and they are not 1/24 scale.

I'm pretty certain that I still have a set from the annual, but they would not be the size that you need.

Here's a thought Ron.

Grind out the center of a 1/24th scale wheel the correct size to insert the 1/25th scale '58 Ford wheel into it.

The correct cap leaves part of the outer wheel exposed anyway, so this should not only give you the correct size wheel, but it will make the wheel/cap look correct, plus make it easy to paint the wheel lip body color. ;)
