I'm sorry, that is a "wheel cover". A "Hub cap" is generally smaller. The term came from years ago when the wheel had a small cap over the "hub" and spindle nut at the end of the spindle. When the wheels first starting getting bolted on with multiple lug nuts, they continued to call them "Hub caps". But when the full "wheel covers" came along in the forties, they were dubbed "Wheel covers" because they cover the wheel.

I am so glad we got that all straightened out.

I'm going to take a shot in the dark, but they're probably off of a Malaise-era Lincoln.
