Nope, all holes, dimensions, everything is exactly the same. Something to do with the finish looks different and it was needed to improve the strength of the wheel! Hmmmmmmmmmm

Nickle plated instead of chrome or visa versa.

Chris, you are close enough, I'll give it to you. The difference was the 65 had a polished and chromed center section with the area between the "spokes" painted charcoal. They found that this polished metal was cracking, I assume the direction of the polishing was creating lines that would then crack. They changed over to a bead blasted/textured surface that was chromed. The area between the spokes was still painted the charcoal color. Like I said if that photo was clearer and a little closer you could see that the spokes were either shiny chrome like the rest of the wheel or a "satin" look.
When my we restored my brothers 65 Gran Sport convertible it took forever to come up with a set of those earlier wheels. And this was twenty years ago! They were very hard to find.

It's your floor.

I don't think this is the answer you are looking for.

Otherwise a 1948 Nash, Made by Nash, Again no nickname.

There were three young Chrysler car innovators and engineers in the late 1920s and early 1930s known as The Three Musketeers. They were Fred Zeder, Owen Skelton, and Carl Breer. Together they did some amazing stuff!
Bob you now have the floor.

I will make this one easy, no year.

Two of the many American car makers, Gale and Model, offered this on their cars?

What did they offer, and why?
