1935 Hudson hubcap wanted

rnrracingrnrracing Posts: 3Member
Hello, 
I am looking for a hubcap to fit my spare for a 1935 Hudson.  It does not have to be in perfect condition, I just want something to cover the hole that looks somewhat period correct. I attached a picture for reference.

Thank you.

    If you're not worried about originality and if it's only for the sidemount, you could probably use a Baby Moon type hubcap.

    I would be up for that.  do you know who might sell one that would fit the original clips on that spare tire cover?  I am not 100% sure how to measure to make sure anything would fit.

    I don't have a sidemount on my '34 but in rnrracing's pic the hole that the hubcap covers looks smaller diameter than the stock hubcap.
    Baby Moons come on a wide variety of diameters and fixings so with a bit of ingenuity it should be possible to cobble together a solution using one.

    I believe I found a picture of what the back of the hubcap should look like since the clips are about 5 1/4" in diameter but the flat part of the spare cover is about 9" in diameter. This picture is from a Terraplane but I am sure its the same as what I need.  Now to try and find one. 
    I will try hubcap mike.
