You are very right about the difference which is about 1,000 --1,500 dollar range

Enjoy

Those are spoked rims on that car, NOT hub caps. That's a big difference.

The spoke hub caps from the 80's fleetwood will fit the 64 rims as i have them on my car
You can see them on my convert on my page

Enjoy

ok,, thanks,, i see the help page,, will refer there for some of tis stuff from now on,

You do need to have the correct stock rims for the 63-64 cars for the stock hub caps to fit
The rim year is stamped on the inside of the rim with the tire off
The car in the picture above could have different rims so those hubcaps are the ones that fit those year rims
Not sure what year those caps in the picture are from myself

Enjoy

Spoke rims and spoke hubcaps are not stock items for 63-64 cars

Hub caps come off a newer fleetwood ( like around the 80's)

Spoked rims are just like a bicycles rims. Spoked hubcaps are fake.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted by Lee Martin on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!
