HUBCAPS Plymouth P9

Post by Plymouth 40 » Tue Feb 01, 2011 9:23 am

Hi All

I am a new owner of a Plymouth P9 from 1940, I have a question about the Hubcaps. I have two different sizes of hubcaps. On the frontwheels they are about 9 inch and i have two spares for the rear wheels and they are 10 inch .
Wich ones are the right size ? ( i believe the smaller ones) but if anybody can confirm that , it wouldt be great.

allready thanks!

Interesting question as the same sizes and questions appear about DODGE script hubcaps from the same period.

I've seen 9" and 10" DODGE script caps from around 1941, and they were set up to fit either 15" or 16" wheels. I've always assumed that the 10" caps went on the 16" rims, and the 9" caps on the 15" rims.

If your P9 has 15" rims on I'd guess they should have 9" caps, if it has 16" rims, like the standard Plymouth 1941 half ton civilian truck, I'd expect it to have 10" caps. Some dealers in the US have reproduction caps and covers - no idea of price or quality.

Another thing you might find is aftermarket caps which were designed to look like original from a distance. There are aftermarket DODGE script caps out there that have DODOE pressed into them, the spelling variation apparently means they were legal and not infringing trademarks or whatever. I believe there was a similar wrongly-spelled version for Plymouth.

Didn't Plymouth have two trim levels back then: Deluxe, and Special Deluxe?
Maybe the cheaper Deluxe cars got the smaller hubcaps.

I have a 37 Dodge sedan and was looking at some 36 dodge rims that are the same size and pattern as my 37 but my 37 hubcap was big when placed on the 36 rims.
