About “The Chrysler”

well when i was young the only thing i remember about this car was it sitting underneath my grandma's carport. i always thought it was hers.

well turns out it wasnt hers. it was my dad's best friend's and he needed a place to put it for a while.

he had it painted and had a custom interior done, white with teal green inset. really nice.

we got a set of stock wheels and hub caps and something wasnt right...i kept telling them they looked like hubcaps off an old chevy

well i'm only 26 so nobody ever believes me when i tell them things like that.

i just recently did some digging around and found they were close to the stock style but these are actually hubcaps from a '73 Caprice. i hate when i'm right :)

here's the hubcaps we've got

and here's the hubcaps we need.

so if anyone needs some hubcaps for an early caprice. drop me a line!!!!!

right now the car has some mag wheels on it but i realy want to level the ride height out and put the stockers back on.
