Unfortunately repro parts are going to be roughly the same price no matter where you get them. You might save a dollar or two by shopping around but that's about it unless you can find someone who has a set they want to get rid of.

Rats - thanks John. I'll be on the lookout but it's way down on my to do list - Henry mentioned it first so he deserves first shot.

I see them from time to time on flea bay but by the time you pay shipping from 4 different individuals they're not such a good buy unless they're really cheap. Don't think I've ever seen a set of 4 used on there - only a set that included the hubcaps.

Got to get that fan shroud bought and installed first.........

You can pony up 150. each and get the Sun Ray emblems already attached to brand new (Ford License) 59-60 Wheel Covers.

I never checked, John. All know is there's no rust on any of them.

Default SunRay Centers

Are these the same centers?These wheel covers were fitted to some 1970's Ford Zodiacs and Zephyrs but these were on my Squarebird when I first bought it.
I see now that they don't have the lines radiating out from the center as in the Mac's picture

No. They were used primarily on 1962 full size Fords. The caps and the centers are different.
