Ok, didn't see the pictures when I looked at the post originally. I was looking for the switch, when you're showing pictures of the lever. They're fun to remove and install.... The reason they break is the cables are super tight or frozen. If you replace the lever, you'll break it again if you don't change the cables. Message me directly and we'll work it out.

As you also mentioned that you needed a hubcap, which style? I seem to recall 2 types used in 1966; one with slots (later) and one without, as per my '66 Deville buddy. Not as familiar with the '60s Cads so I stand to be corrected. I imagine you may want them all to look the same. May have one or a set in storage. Clay/Lexi

So to me they look like the earlier set, the ones without the cooling slots. When I get to my storage depot I will have a look. Would want $25 USD for one cap if in decent to very fine shape but will have to first dig them out and see what I have. Probably wont get to the storage area until later in May so if you are in no rush...I will have a look then to see what's there. Will discount a set if you want to replace all. Shipping would be extra. Clay/Lexi

Edit: If there, will post detailed photos for inspection and your approval.

Just got those caps both vented and non-vented. To inspect to see what year they are. Will post some pics. Thank you for your patience. Clay/Lexi

Hello Frank. Did an archaeological dig and came up with what I think are both types of 1966 Cadillac hubcaps. I have 4 of the later style vented caps and 5 of the earlier style without vents. As your cap appears non-vented, and I got a set of 5 (one for trunk spare), I don't mind selling you the best one for $20 US. If you want all 5 I will part with them for $50 US. One has some odd rust stains (did not try to clean). They all appear metal wise to be in really nice shape with medallions intact.

If you want to shift to the set of 4 with vents, (better for brake cooling), they are yours for $50 US. Won't break up that set. Very nice shape with medallions and should clean up well.

I sent a PM to you today, you can PM me back. Shipping would be extra and I would have to get a quote on that and insist on tracking. That way you and I are in the clear if the Post Office fouls up. Prefer PayPal.

You have first rights of refusal until days end Sunday June 26, 2400 hours. If another member is interested please advise here or by PM, anytime, first come first serve dependent on what Frank decides by this Sunday. Note I live in Canada which may result in increased shipping costs, hence this reduced overall price.

2 sample pics of actual caps here one of each style. Can post pics of all if you wish, or just other shots to confirm their vintage as I am not an "expert" on 1960s Caddy stuff. Cheers. Clay/Lexi
