WTB - Hub Cap/ Wheel Cover for 2126 1651

I had a broken clip on my driver side rear wheel and it threw the hubcap making a terrible mess of what was a really nice piece.

Looking for a hub cap / wheel cover for a 1946 Long wheel base Clipper with 16 inch wheels. Picture attached.. not my image but it is the same cover needed.

1946 Model 2126 1651


I plan on getting the damaged cover restored but I would like to have an extra.

Thanks
Chris

I have one but I’m afraid it’s not in a condition that would be usable on a restored car. Note during your searching, though, that there were two different covers that looked alike but had different mounts. For example, some of the Henney-Packards used them with the back inner ring being recessed about 3/8” while passenger cars had the inner ring nearly flush with the outer rim of the cover. Yours is likely the latter (PN 403035) but compare to be sure.

Bill Hirsch reproduces them but is currently out of stock. Cap and cloisonne sold separately. That's an expensive clip failure.

I believe the 16 inch wheels use a larger cap then the 15 inch. please provide the diameter of the cap and if the inner and outer rings are even as used on the custom eights. If you have the 14 1/2 inch cap it will be hard to find.

The wheel covers on my Henney-Packards are roughly 12.75” dia according to my notes and had 16” wheels but I’m not there to double check. However, I have several others from both 15” and 16” wheels and I don’t recall noticing any difference in diameter but if you want I can check in a few weeks when I’m back at my shop.

16 inch wheels

HUBCAP 12 3/4 or probably 12 13/16 to be more exact.

The inner ring on the back side of the hubcap is just recessed an 1/8 inch at most when a straight edge is laid across the back on the entire cap.

Thank you for taking the time to reply and checking to see if you have one.

Best regards
Chris

If you're not having fun, maybe it's your own damned fault.
