I've found a set of old wheel hubs in the shed, I have no idea what car they come from so I was hoping the combined wisdom of this forum could help identify them.

I  have attached a photo and all info welcome :)

Looks like stock early post war Ford model 100E/ Cortina/ Escort  and Lotus-Ford ( nave plates) sorry "Hub-caps"  fitted with aftermarket spinners purchased as an add-on from most go-faster shops in the sixties together with a roll of checker tape  and an aerosol of matt black for the bonnet ! Thus " Stage-one " boy racer kit  .From memory I do believe the spinners were manufactured by (Coronnet Components Ltd)

Great thanks for the info, it does look like the spinners have been added as an after thought and I can imagine someone trying to tart up their car with bits and pieces.
