67 Steel Wheel color
« on: September 14, 2018, 01:30:21 PM »
On the 67 hubcap cars, is the wheel color semi-gloss black or something a bit shinier?

Thanks Jeff. I have that pic in my personal library but sheen is hard to detect.

OF course with cleaning and rubbing you can get semi-gloss to have a higher reflective quality and there was likely some small amount of variations in the original painting - daily mix, weather, amount of product applied but as mentioned on untouched originals found most in the mid range of semi- gloss

Thought this might be the best place to post this.

I understand that Ford sourced their valve stems from Dill.
On the hubcap cars these were either 1.25" or 1.5" inches long.
Are there any exterior features of any note?
I assume due to the hubcaps that there might be extenders?
Any features there?
And lastly the cap. Does the cap have a small tit?
