Putting a '67 Coronet RT together for a friend, anyone have a source for new dust caps? I don't need NOS, reproductions are good enough.
Thanks,

These dust caps were discussed recently on E-bodies.org. There are part #s in the link but double check that your friends 67 takes the same ones. The new caps have a tall lip. Taller then original ones. You might have clearance issues with the wheel center cap if you don't trim the caps to sit more flush to the hubs.

When I was restoring my T/A I really wanted to find new dust caps, and the ones I found and purchased didn’t fit!
I finally gave up and reused my dinged up old ones.
The new ones all had made in China stamped in them. Which we’d carefully polished off before installing, I should have waited until I’d tried them to see if they’d fit before wasting the time polishing.

Guys, thanks for the responses. I'm also working on my friend's 56 Fury, the caps are also beat up and they fit the RT. That size must have been used by Mopar for many years.

The cap bore size of aftermarket rotors is inconsistent.

Dorman # 13996 caps fit the OEM Mopar bore spec.

Dorman # 618-101 caps fit the smaller bore variants.
