I'm with CC, it's a hubcap puller.

You have it, however I think it only fair that you need to come up with the car. I'll give you a hint, it changed it's wheel bolt pattern dramatically in the late sixties.

Well the most dramatic bolt pattern change in rims I can think of would be when Pontiac went fron 8 to 5 but that would be in the early 60's. Before that in the mid 50's Buick went from wheel bolts to wheel studs ( thank God !) and that would qualify as dramatic. That's the best I could come up with.

Nope, like I said it's Carolina's floor and he can ask his question I will wait a little while longer before giving up the car. The Pontiac comes close in the dramatic difference in wheel lug patterns but we aren't talking a few models, the entire make, every car they made permanently changed.

Chrysler stopped using left handed lugs about that time and I think it effected their entire production line.

On some VW's, the hubcap puller served double duty as a jack post hole plug.
