It may seem like an oxymoron to buy “new” classic Corvette parts. Here at CS of MD West though, that’s exactly what you’ll find. We offer so many different Corvette parts, up to and including Corvette hubcaps. Many of these hubcaps are “new,” in that they were made for the classic Corvettes of their era but simply haven’t been used or in many cases even opened. Other hubcaps are new “reproduction” parts. These Corvette parts were designed by us to be exactly like the originals. In this blog, we’ll explain what that means as well as what sets our hubcaps apart.
Corvette Hubcaps from Us
We know that for most people, the hubcaps are not the part of the vehicle that most people notice immediately. When you park your Corvette on the street on in a parking lot, it’s doubtful that someone will walk by and be struck by your hubcaps. That being said, there are people who are going to notice – like you. In addition to you, other knowledgeable Corvette enthusiasts will. We make parts that not only restore Corvettes to what they were; they help your Corvette to stand out among the other classic Corvettes. There’s nothing quite like a great Corvette from the past, and our parts make your Corvette unique even among these incredible vehicles.
What the Right Tooling Enables
If you were around in 1965, you may remember what it was like when Corvette rolled those hubcaps off the line with the plastic-crossed flag emblem. No matter what your taste in hubcaps might be, these looked cool. Corvette used different hubcaps and spinners every year from 1962 through 1966. That being said, they weren’t without problems. Mounting the 1965 hubcaps on the rim often left small dents. Here at CS of MD West, we’re always looking for ways to make your Corvette look its best. In this case, that meant augmenting the original hubcaps. So, we got the kind of tooling which enables us to make hubcaps that perfectly compliment your ’65. With our tools, you won’t receive any point deductions for NCRS judging. That’s how well constructed these reproduction parts are.
1966 Hubcap Spinners
At our site, the hubcap spinners for a 1966 Corvette are a fine example of our reproduction parts. We’ve made these from the original designs to fit your 1966 Corvette perfectly. It would be incredibly difficult (if not flat out impossible) to notice that these weren’t the original hubcap spinners on your Corvette. It’s the little details that make the reproduction so unassailable. For example, we made sure that they have the iconic plastic cross flag emblem right there included in each spinner. With the steel retainer riveted in place from the rear, they were properly installed. We understand that when you come to us, you’re looking for Corvette parts which have been put together correctly.
A Corvette for Judges and Drivers
We understand that not everyone who comes to us is looking to put their Corvette in front of judges. However, we also know that after you’ve had your Corvette for a while, that may change. We aim to make our customers’ Corvettes look and run as great as they ever have. So, whether that leads you into a competition or the open road, we’re glad to be able to help your Corvette. Judges are always looking for features such as proper 1956-62 hubcap spinners. For example, the ones we offer have a visible raised edge in the center of the flipper. Even better: this is true on all sides of the spinner. This attention to detail and craftsmanship is what will set your vehicle apart in a judged content or anywhere else.
We know that there are many choices out there for used Corvette parts, such as hubcaps or many others. Reproduction parts are almost invariably better than these used parts. For one thing, reproduction parts are often so much less expensive. Instead of paying a lot of money for something that’s truly old, you’ll instead get something that is entirely new. While it is “new,” it is specifically built for the task. On top of that, you can never be 100% sure what kind of dings, dents and worse that used parts may have. Instead of finding a nasty surprise later on down the road, with reproduction parts you know that they don’t have any of that wear and tear.
Hubcaps are an important part of your Corvette. Whether you’re out driving with your friends/family or in the thick of a competition, hubcaps can set your Corvette apart from the rest. Of course, they aren’t the only important part of your Corvette. If you take just a quick look through our site, you’ll find all of the other Corvette parts that you might need to take your Corvette to another level.
