But you are right as far as I've ever known. The all chrome is Oldsmobile, right? Chevelle always had a trim ring?

 I agree with the trim ring being Chevrolet. 

That brochure car is one of my all time favourites btw.

IIRC, earlier Magnum 500s (1968 and before?) were chrome wheels without trim rings. Without taking the time to research, it seems to me you could buy them still from the aftermarket.

I've always preferred the chrome Magnums without trim rings, personally.

Edit: These are the ones I'm talking about, though it might just be a Mopar thing, not sure.

All chrome Ralleys were offered on Mopars 1966-68; 69' up a trim ring was added. On Cutlass  1965-69  the 6" chrome with out the trim ring was offered (was not available on disc brake car). In 1970 a 7" all chrome was available for the disc brake car. Both Mopar and GM  offered other wheel options usually with a trim ring.

Thanks Dale.  IIRC the no-trim ring Magnums were available on some Fords as well.
