value of 63 Impala SS hubcaps?

My mom found some clean 63 Impala SS hubcaps at a flea market yesterday.
She said that she put them in her basket and went on about her business, then shortly after noticed a man following her.
The man followed her for a good 20 minutes then finally approched her and asked if she knew what the hubcaps were for. She said that she wasn't sure but probably an old camaro or something. The guy then said well would you take $75 for them? My mom said no, that they weren't forsale.. the guy then said well would you take $200 for them? Again my mom said No and that they weren't forsale.
The guy said that he didn't have anymore money to offer, and since he knew my mom wasn't going to budge, that he wanted to tell her what she had......... He said that they were 63 Implala SS hubcaps and that you can't find them anywhere.. and if they were his, he wouldn't take a penny under $800 for them.

I find this hard to believe!

What do you think the value is for a decent set of 63 Impala SS hubcaps?

Everything is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. The problem is, finding that someone who is willing to pay. In other words,it might be a long time before your mother meets someone willing to pay top dollar. When selling things you might have to advertise,you might have to sit out in the sun for two months before something gets sold,etc.etc.

here they are.. and after some research, I believe these are for a 65... and I think my mom should have taken the $200 for them.. but she didn't know; and she didn't mess up too bad because she only gave $20 for the set.

I did a Google search and they do look like 63 caps. The guy knew what he was looking at and might know the worth also!

The very first thing I did...

When I bought my 64SS back in 1969 was to pull off those hub caps and put on chrome reverse wheels!!! My father gave me the hub caps when he moved last year and I gave them to a buddy building a 63SS for his kid.

there are tons of 63 ss hubcaps on ebay. not all are without pits in the chrome plated cast center spinners but you can find nice ones for way less that $800.
