I want to cry, the one you found on eBay has been sold. That's the only one that fits my wheel. I can't even figure out how to reach the guy as I'm new to eBay and just registered. I thought I had a previous account.

That one doesn't fit. I shared too much info on this page and someone grabbed it up from me. The only one that was the correct center cap was found by Rick. I'm so sad. I should have just paid what they were asking. I probably will never find another one. ;(

When dealing with something that rare, one must seize any opportunity. It would not surprise me if that is what one of the readers here did.

The closest plan B, I can come up with is: Find some chrome universal caps that fit and kind of look like the originals then apply the sticker 283092S.

Google is your friend, so if the hole size is 56mm, then for instance

Thank you for trying to help me out, I am most appreciative; those don't fit as they're for VW & BMW wheels. My center caps are a precise fit. Plus, the wheels on it aren't original from its manufactured date in 1979. The original owner changed them out before I bought this car in 1981 (he made sure I knew he spent $250 per wheel). They're much nicer than the original ones. Most Volvo wheels don't even fit it I'm finding out; it must be Volvo part no. 283092.

I'm sure that's what happened; had I not been working long hours in production, I too would have seized the moment. I now have an eBay account, which I didn't earlier. Thnx for your other suggestion as a last resort. I'm still determined to find these 283092 center caps or at least one cap for the missing one.

Hey Creekybird - I have a full set of NOS caps that I would part with. I'm not active on this forum (just registered today to post this) but have been on turbobricks for a long time and sell on ebay under this user name (100% positive, almost 800 transactions).

What's the diameter? 56mm hole?

Different OEMs used 56mm hole.

Thank you, everyone, for trying to help me. I'm not happy with the person that grabbed this center cap up from me. :cry: I gave out years of valuable info that took me forever to acquire & they ran with it. I'm sure their car doesn't work in television shows; that's a BIG reason why I needed part # 283092 so my '79 Volvo would have no holes in its wheels and all four would have matched on camera. :cry: :( https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1243222/
