EH Holden S4 and option hubcap

Hi, I recently spoke to someone who owned a one owner S4 and showed me the original hubcaps that came with the car. I have never seen them before and was told that these were an expensive upgrade and may have been available as an option for other EH models. Can anyone shed light on these 13 inch hub caps please?

Look a lot like Corvette or Impala maybe 59 era? Definitely Chev with the double flag.

The pic you have is very close but different outer rim. I thought it was Chev too but the owner of the S4 tells me different. I could not find any images myself. May have been just a dealer getting rid of some old Chevbcaps he had lying around who knows?

Looks like they trimmed the outer ring off and filed out the valve hole to fit 13" rims.

It’s definitely from a Chev, I always thought the two flags mention Fuel Injection ?
Not even the Holden export model had them, as far as I can see in books of mine they just had the chev bow tie logo from HK-HQ then HJ-HZ had the cadillac logo

I think they are an aftermarket hubcap.
Nothing like this mentioned or shown on the S4 page in the Holden workshop manual or the EH accessory brochure.
I would say they were just an accessory the dealer put on when the car was new, just like the gauge cluster I once saw advertised as being an original S4 cluster because it was in the car from new.
The S4 was basically the same as any other 179 manual EH. It introduced the upgrades that came when the manual gearbox was offered with the 179. The only real difference to a standard 179 manual car was the 12 gallon fuel tank and the serial number on the gearbox.

Dealers will do and say anything for a sale. Even change hubcaps.

A good mate today was going to drive down to Sydney from Nambucca just today after work to buy a 2nd had Kia from a dealer. I told him to do his research first and at least get the NRMA do give the car a check over. He thought it good advice and cancelled the trip till next weekend to do all the checks.
Guess what - He was texted this afternoon. Apparently there are "2 very interested buyers". Would he like to make a deposit now to hold it?
I said tell the dealer -you wouldn't want to stand in the way of 2 buyers who have money in their pocket now. That just wouldn't be the decent thing to do.
I'll bet the dealer STILL calls him back

Then when the dealer calls back tell him you area bit wary of the car because two people have decided to not buy it.
Then watch him work to get your money and get a good deal.
Nothing makes a used car salesman work harder than making him think you might not buy the car.
