Impossible to find 240 center caps

Post by creekybird »

When I bought my '79 Volvo in '81, the original owner said, he spent a thousand dollars just on the wheels, which are really nice. One of the center caps is missing, the others need replacing too. I've gone everywhere trying to find them. Amazon, dealerships, Volvo parts, hubcap places & to no avail have I had any luck. Anyone know possibly where I could locate them?

This is what I'm looking for 4 center caps that match this wheel.

If you want the same caps, your best bet is to find somebody that can recondition the ones you have.
If after market will do, 60mm/56mm caps ... 60mm round cap that clips into into a 56mm hole.

Found one old stock 283092.

I'm totally impressed! Wow........ if you see any others, let me know. Do you think it's a fair asking price $99.25 + CA tax + shipping or I'm curious, what would you offer? I can't find my sign info & am at the studio so it will be a couple of hrs. before I can handle.
