    Ok MoPar guys, which do you like better the original Polara 500 hub caps or do you prefer the Magnum 500 wheels with white letter tires. The first time I saw this car I envisioned it with the 500 s and white letters. But I really do like the original hubs too. I don't much care for the red line tires.

    Thanks Hub caps.jpg magnum.jpg

      I vote for the magnums. I like stock appearance a lot, but the Mopar magnums are a great day two look. Stance and wheels add to, not take away IMO.

          Hub caps (otherwise known as doggie dish, poverty caps, and more) cover hubs, leaving part of the wheel exposed. Wheel covers, cover the wheels.
          I like the magnums much better than the wheel covers, but I really like the hubcap look too.

          I prefer the magnums on ‘68 to ‘70 B bodies, but they look good on your car. I think that they stand out more against darker paint colours, though.
          That’s a sweet car, you’re good with whatever you choose.

              Those rims look great with that dark colour.

                  In this case, hub caps.

                        If any wheel covers are used I would go for poverty caps, dog dish. Full wheel covers are not my thing.

                        Blackwalls on the 500’s too.

                          That is one nice looking 64 Sports Fury, at least I assume it is Sports Fury. I was really looking for a 64 Fury, but I found the Dodge.

                          As a teen, I owned a 1965 Plymouth Satellite. It was light turquoise with black vinyl seat and a console. The car had a 361 cu in engine and a 4 bbl carb and dual exhaust. None of my classmate knew they had made a 361 cu in Mopar. A little odd for a Mopar but the car was quick off the line, but not so much top end. It was my most favorite car I ever owned.
