    Looking for 70's Mercury center caps...

    I've posted this way in the past but I'm still looking. $100 CASH REWARD + shipping costs + whatever reasonable amount you have to pay to get it.

    Missing one off my baby and I really want it complete
    Car is a 77 Marquis, 75-78 models are pretty much identical but others likely fit. The big problem is these were optional alloy wheels not steelies and they were kinda rare. I have yet to see another set of them except in old brochures and such.

    I actually wouldn't be opposed to a spare set of wheels either if they happened to be available...

    Cap looks like this, is held to the wheel with 3 screws.



    Lincolns had a similar cap that I think might fit but I'd want a set of 4 so it all matches...

    Anyway, if anyone is in a salvage yard or at lemons or something and runs across this lemme know. There has to be one out there somewhere.

    Thanks for the pictures Cow. I'm putting in a couple inquiries here locally.

    No luck so far Cow. That cap is a tough find.

    I know it, been looking for a while and opted to crowd source it

    I may have found some from a thunderbird that will fit but the center emblem is different.

    Well, I found one and it matches. Bad news is its not perfect... There are some gouges and it looks like someone cleaned it up with a wire brush. Still, maybe I can get some polish or something- my other 3 aren't perfect either- and clean it up. I'm just glad I found a matching cap!

    Got my cap on and the wheels shined up. Now I just need to address a couple issues... like the slipping transmission and she should be trip-worthy again.
