Hub cap wrenches

I have 2 hub cap wrenches for cars with larger hubcaps. These are larger than the 1930/31 hubcaps. (Maybe for Mike's Locomobile?)

The light colored wrench measures 3 and 1/2 inches across the open end. The other two wrench openings are 1 and 1/2 and 1 and 1/4 inches.

The dark colored wrench measures 2 and 3/4 inches across the open end.

I will bring these wrenches with me to the Durant meet in Grand Junction.

Re: Hub cap wrenches

I have an aluminum hub cap, measures 2.56 inches across flats. The letter D is raised on the face of cap, a somewhat ornate script font, with red painted filling in the script, also a double circle around the script with red filling, about 2-1/4 inches across. Overall diameter is 3-1/8 inches. Could this be for a Durant? Oh, by the way, the inside threaded portion measures about 2-3/8 inches diameter. I will probably sell it if I can find out what it is.

Thanks much!!

Re: Hub cap wrenches

Hi Dennis.

It might be a hubcap from one of the earlier Durant years (1921 - 1929). I have 1930 Durants which are entirely different from the earlier years, so I am not too familiar with the 1921-29 hubcaps. The 1930/31 hub caps are aluminum and have the Durant name spelled out.

If you can reply with a picture, other club members may be able to identify the hubcap. Just go to the top of your reply on this page where it says "How to add pictures". It takes about 3 steps to add a picture and the directions need to be read carefully as it a program outside of our web site that connects, so we work with it.

Re: Hub cap wrenches

Hi, Bob:
I am having a problem with my digital camera, it thinks the SD memory card is bad. Possibly I can get another SD card. I might be able to make a pic using cell phone, not sure if an image from that can be uploaded. The upload procedure leaves me confused at this point, so this may take a little while! (BTW, my camera is a Canon Power Shot A 510. It is about 15 years old, maybe compatibility issues with SD memory cards.)

Looks like a DeSoto hubcap with that stylized D.

Re: Hub cap wrenches

DeSoto had that style, also D with small e and DS.
The lad who owns De Vaux M-3245 Coupe used that DeSoto D one on his wheels. (same thread size) as I assume he couldn't find the proper De Vaux ones. I have a pics of his coupe, inc one of his left front wheel with the DeSoto cap.
