What are stock 1964 Rampside hubcaps?

Anyone have a picture of what the stock hubcaps looked like on the 1964 Rampside? I believe there were 3 options, but I don’t know what they look like.

I found this thread on hubcaps, which now has me freaked out about finding the right caps given the various look-Alice’s:

Clark's NOS catalog has drawings of the two styles: 61 - 63; 64 - 65

Chrome for deluxe; painted for tohers.

Based on Clark's catalog; in Matt's first Google link - first reply in your thread:

64 - 65 are the left pic; 61 - 63 the next pic

Clarks is out of stock on all rims and hubcaps - except a $400 set of repop hubcaps

When in doubt, go to the Corvanatics web site.

Here you'll find a picture of the late style ('64-65) stock hubcap:


and late style Custom Chrome cap:


As well as the early style ('61-63) stock:

Thanks, Steve.

Interestingly, I believe their photo of the chrome hubcap is not accurate. The face should be smooth. Their picture is of a slightly varied modern repop.

Not that it matters that much to me, but these threads become historical records and that should be noted.

I believe you are correct and the image should look like this.

Please point out the subtle difference between the late deluxe caps Steve shows and the last picture in a separate post.

I do not believe that ridge should be there on either. That ridge was an enhancement for late 65 and 66 and was not available in 64.

I thank Eido for identifying this difference in the design of the FC hub caps and bringing to my attention the resource present on the Chevy Truck forum.

I'm hoping that this picture will clarify the differences between the FC hubcaps and those produced afterwards for other Chevy trucks and vans.



It appears that the pictures I posted above are actually reproductions of the latter style (with ridge) chrome caps, as evidenced by the difference in the dimensions of the center Bowtie.
