Help ID this hubcap.

Just went to pop my freshly restored bottle cap hubcaps onto my 65 disc brake conversion (15x7 steel wheels with innie centers) and..... $#%$#%$#!!!! they are too shallow and don't clear the hub. So I found this cap hat seems to work, looks similar. Anybody know what this is or does anybody know what will fit a f100 innie wheel and clear the disc brake hub?

I feel your pain! Back when I did my disc brake swap I had hoped to run some stainless bottlecaps on my 15x8 innies. Before I invested in the caps I read somewhere they were too shallow for the disc brake spindle but I don't remember by how much. Do you recall how much they lack to fit?

Anyway, for the time being I bought a set of '46 Ford repops from Bob Drake. They have plenty of clearance and look ok.

Btw, I agree the cap in your pic looks like '58-60ish.

Here's a pic of the '46 repop:

yeah, I know those big-*** weights look stupid on this rim but that will change soon.....

They are about 1/2" short. Maybe a short dust cap could get it a bit closer. I may just section and extend my bottle caps. I just spent the better part of a weekend powder coating my old set and hate to have to strip and chop them up and weld all over them. maybe I'll just run the repps like you while I track down the 57-60 caps (which of course are near impossible to find). Sadly, snapping on the caps was the last thing I had to do in a 1 year restoration. ^%#$%^$#%^!!!!!

You could also consider using 1/2" spacers. I doubt you'd notice much difference in the wheel fitment and save yourself a ton of work on modifying those bottlecaps. Just a thought...
