Unknown Hubcaps

A brand new set of 4 of the hub caps fell into my lap and I have no idea what they are for. Maybe you guys could help me out?

Are you sure Poncho?



This one seems to go back as far as at least 1947.

Not a Cadillac, it's probably DeSoto. Probably around '51-'52 era.

Lyon aftermarket hubcap!
(Part# 97098 it looks like!)

Found it on the HAMB.

After finding it you can Google "Lyon hubcap" and find lots of other pics and info.

E-Bay

Kustomrama has a breif blurb on the company history.

It looks like you've stumbled upon a rare find indeed!
Probably worth a small fortune to the right buyer.

Why can't I ever be in the right place at the right time to score like that??
