It actually took me two years to realize that I was driving around in a 65 mustang fitted with the stock hubcaps for a 66 mustang. Granted, it’s not a major issue, but once I knew I just had to start looking for a correct set (finally found them on Ebay).

Notable differences are the wheel cover center caps which say ‘Mustang’ on the 65 version and have the tri-bar logo on the 66 version, and the fact that the earlier wheel covers do dover the entire wheel while the later version has open sections. 

I know some people will disagree, but personally I actually much prefer the look of the 65 stock hubcaps to the 66 version. However I do prefer the 66 center caps…

As I now have both versions I might combine the 65 covers with the 66 center caps. So that will turn out okay in the end! 🙂
