IF you want something EXTREMELY RARE I have a set of "Motor Wheel Spyders". 5x5x15x6 in good condition I MAY part with for the right   $$$$

Hi All,

Does anyone know if they made these Wildcat cap with silver back ground around the wildcat.  I know of the black around the wildcat, that common.  Mine are silver and it does not look like the black has faded or worn off.  All four of mine look the same, silver.  Also it appears to be a sticker of some kind.  The wildcat is not stamped in the metal cap, see the backside of cap

Here's 3 of my cap.  The fourth one I was tape off the wildcat, thinking of painting around it black, but stop to ask the above question.  In no hurry to paint them really.

 

Ed, 

I took your challenge, ha ha, not really, but found four 64 center caps.  $760 and from the picture could be a little iffy condition.

In this picture, it appears that there is an insert of some sort behind the stamped Wilcat.  It's not part of the cap that has the mounting tangs on it.   ??

Here are a couple of pages from 1964 Buick sales brochures that show the Wildcat center cap. Both on the rally wheel and the spoked wheel cover.  In both applications, the Wildcat is surrounded by a black background.

Ed,

You're right!  I have that same brochure on the colors, and yes it black around the wildcat.

 

Thanks,

Art

Art, I can replicate the Wildcat emblem you are talking about.

$760? Not hardly. In the pics are my handiwork replicating the 63 TriShield and 64 Riviera emblem.

I was considering masking the cat, then spraying the back ground black.  I haven't started it, because it's not a high priority.  $760, no way.  I still have to get my dash pad done.

Turb, 

I'm not wanting to take anything from you, and from your previous post I don't think that I am, but if Art wants Wildcat center caps in a turbine spinner, he'd be better off getting ahold of a  set of base 1964 Wildcat wheel covers and swapping centers I like I do with base Riviera covers.
