    Hello all,
    Three questions
    1. What dog dish hubcap (If any) would have come on a 1973 H code duster?
    2. What dog dish hubcap would have come on a 1973 Stock duster?
    3. Did body color painted stock steel rims come completely painted the body color Or was only the outer side body color painted and the back / inside of the rim painted other then the body color?
    Happy Mopar :)
    Thanks in advance
    Arron.

    Well, the ones on the right are Dodge dog dishes, so it would not be those. (Anything with the fratzog is a Dodge part).

    Plymouth Division all the way.
    The plane Jane model would be acceptable.

    The hubcaps on the left came on my 73 Duster and the wheels were painted black, not body color.

      I think 72 was the last year for body color wheels with dog-dish caps, after that they were the standard low gloss black.

        Black semi gloss steel wheels and the plain ones on the left would have been factory for your car.
        The hubcaps in the middle were for Dodges only as mentioned, and the ''Plymouth Division'' ones on the right were factory on '69 to '71 Plymouths, so they would be incorrect for your car, even though they look better than the plain jane ones on the far left...........

        Sometime in the Spring of '71 was the end of the era for body color steelies with hub caps.

        Unless you had a black car of course........

        And if you had a black car the wheels were still semi gloss, whereas before they were gloss like the body.

        My 69 wheels are being powder coated matching red as we speak...
        I love the understated look of poverty caps.

        I have ran poverty caps for 30 years. Back then it wasn’t cool, but I liked it.

          At one point having rims painted to match the car color was a factory option that was ordered when you ordered your car

            Hello Alaskin_TA,
            Thanks,
            Stinks that they discontinued color matching around spring of 71.
            Would it have been possible to special order or get them as an dealer option package in 73?
            Happy Mopar :)
            Thanks in advance,
            Arron

              Agreed.
              Also, i'd bet if the customer wanted body colored steelies and pie plate hubcaps when the car was new, the dealership would have been more than happy to do it for you............

                I have not seen a special order paint option for wheels.

                Until Spring of '71, it was standard with hubcaps, not an extra cost option.

                The only exclusion I can think of were the Challenger T/As in mid - '70 with hubcaps - black rims only but they also came with trim rings.

                  So the caps on my 69 Swinger now are the plain ones on the left. The ones in the center with the red would be the right / correct ones , right ?

                    Alaskan is right. The dog dish on the left would be correct; however, I would bet that a lot of H codes came with the full size caps- mine did
