correct wheels and caps 1967 Beaumont SD


Hello!

My wife's uncle purchased some time ago a 1967 Beaumont convertible.

In speaking with him recently, he told me that it was actually an SD model, and he was surprised at my revelation that the Pontiac Rally II's were not original to the car.
If I recall correctly it has a rather pedestrian 283/2bbl with a powerglide - but he was thinking of upgrading it with a slightly more powerful small block with an overdriven auto and more gearing out back, and putting the 283 in his '55 Chevy pickup.

I was wondering, if he wanted to get original style rally wheels, I would presume that a correct/original wheel would in fact be a (14x6") Chevrolet rally wheel;
What I am unsure on is what type of centrecap it would have;
Would it be a 1967 Chevrolet centrecap, and if so, would it have had any sort of overlay to cover up the "Chevrolet"?

Any tips, advice, and pictures would be appreciated.

This is the correct center cap for the rally wheel used on a Beaumont (and Canadian built Pontiac):

I believe it is the same cap used on Chevrolet police cars that had disc brakes however the word "Disc Brake" is absent. A stainless trim ring is also used on the Chevy style rally.

With all the Feature Cars that were 67 Beaumont SD I figured I'd just post a photo of one with the correct wheels, but I couldn't believe it, there are are at least a dozen and non have the correct factory rally wheel. I did find this 68 which would be the same.

Best to go with 15" rallies when it comes to tire options. Show some pics of the car!! That would a nice one to see, and a very rare car!

I just messaged the owner with some information, and a link to this thread - maybe he will sign up and share some pictures. :)

Thanks!!
