Looking for 65' Hubcaps


Hello, I just joined Poncho:)

I recently bought a 65 Acadian Canso SD, I had one when I was younger, Im rehashing my youth.

my new purchase doesnt have the original hubcaps and I am hoping to track some down.

Thanks,
I bought the car out of Ontario and it is supposed to be shipped soon. It has 15" rims with ralley wheels. I would like to put it back to the original hubcaps.
Im not sure if the originals where 15". I kinda think they would have been 14?

Those are the sport deluxe full wheel covers and will only fit 14 inch wheels. Not 15s. I don't have any of those sorry.

I've informed Brad that the car has Disc brakes and 14" wheels likely won't fit!! Only alternative would be 15" steel wheels and some full whl. discs that are "close" to what he's looking for, otherwise leave the Rally's on it.

He should be able to find a stock steel wheel to fit disc brakes on an Acadian IF it's a GM disc setup. I know on the full size it won't work with 14's but I ran a set of disc brakes on my 66 Nova SS and used 14" small centre rally wheels. Only one way to know for sure though!

I still haven't received delivery of the car. When I do I will do some measuring. I was told that a 14 X 6" rim might fit rather than the stock 14 X 5" rim.
The 6" is from a station wagon and is slightly offset which might help.

You may have to find 14" rims for disc brakes. Do you know if it's an original setup, or aftermarket?

If you want the stock 67 Acadian style rally wheels I have a set of those. They're bare, you'd have to buy rings and caps for them.

well ill wait until the car is delivered, hopefully about a week.
Im looking for the original 65 hubcaps with spinners but if they wont fit there isnt much point.
I found 3 complete hubcaps and 1 hubcap with no spinner but overall rough shape. Ill try to find a spinner to make it a set

How rough, road rashed or just dented. If you do not use them and put them up for sale let me know.

Hello,

I am having a difficult time trying to navigate this site.

you can tell me to go figure it out myself and I'll understand.

If your able, how do I start a post, or get involved? I seem to be going around in circles.

thanks

Scroll right to the top of the page.

Click on the little "Canadian Poncho" underneath "List All Users"

Scroll down to the section you would like to post in, for example "General/Acadian Ventura Discussion" and click on there.

At the far right side of the page above the list of topics you will see "Start a New Topic". Click on that.

It will open a window and the top line is "Subject". Type in what you want to talk about, for example "Acadian Production Numbers"

Then below that in the big blank box, click your mouse and start typing. Enter what you need to say and when you have it all typed look down below that box and click on "Submit Post"

If you have trouble with this, I can do a phone call with you sometime and we can go through the steps live.
