Buick Riviera custom wheel cover center emblem medallions


Recommended Posts

For my first post ever I'll start with this. My '67 Riviera has the deluxe turbine wheel covers and as usual they are cracked and discolored. 

I found this company that makes custom Vinyl 3D emblems, decals, medallions (virtually any graphic design) -- and the price for (4) can't be beat; unbelievable! 
    3dcarstickers.com

Has anyone purchased these?  I am about to buy several sets. 

Google took me to these indirectly.

Will these work for you?

I got these in a deal with some other parts. Not sure what year or purpose they are for. If someone knows what these are for, please let me know.

These are 2.72" diameter, .178" thick. They come with a double sided adhesive disc.
3 are in the original unopened packaging. 1 is as new, but has been removed from the packaging. 1 has a very slight blemish.
All 5 for $25 plus shipping. 

If anyone is interested, message me and I'll send more pictures.

’67 turbine medallions are identical to those in ‘69 plain wheel covers. Extremely rare in good shape. I can show you how to restore them.

 

I have three non cracked medallions you can have for your dads Riv.
Not mint but very nice.

 

Happy new year

 

Paul


PS there are ‘69 plain covers on eBay now.

Just as an FYI, the standard wheel cover on the 1969 was also used on the 1970 if you need to expand your search.

Paul, what is the diameter of these emblems? Thank you very. Measurement in mm or inches is just fine. Thank you in advance of your usual very fine cooperation. I’m guessing they are 70-71mm in diameter. I’m happy to be wrong.

I wonder if these guy could make a set of the 64 Wildcat center piece as a sticker?  Have to call them.  For those that don't know these are 64 Wildcat center caps (below), the outer area around the cat is supposed to be black with the chrome cat and chrome steel cap.  The 64 Wildcat had the Buick Road wheels, these wheels were on my 64 Riviera.

They can copy any image but the 3D effect claim can be misleading.

The “3D” reference is to the outer dome shape of the medallions. The image under the clear dome remains 2D.

 

I had a simple Chevy bow tie set made years ago and it was perfect for my set up. I wanted the colors to match my car.

 

But the image was not 3D.

If you're not familiar with them, the 64 caps are totally different than anything that followed.  The Wildcat is stamped into metal.  In the picture above, the big chrome "ring" that you see is actually part of the wheel, the entire center cap is snapped inside the opening in the wheel.  I took these images off of an eBay listing. The seller is asking $599.99 for these four - which need some TLC.  They are rare.

I spy with my little eye: two 1964 seat belt buckles. 🧐.  Are these all things that you've had re-chromed? Everything in that drawer looks really good.
