I'm still looking for one relatively good original hubcap for a one-ton truck (non-painted). The inside diameter edge-to-edge needs to be 9.25". Thanks! John (two-6-2three-0-9-9-nine-33)

Sent you another email Keith. Not sure if you are getting my emails? Anyone else need a part I'm listing? I would trade a door for a good Chevrolet tailgate.
