Hub Caps

I was looking to get some hub caps for my Aussie 67 Fairmont.
The ones that I am looking are GT hub caps that look like this.



I've saw that the 1966 Mercury Comet Cyclone GT Hub Caps are the same ones.

Are they thin on the ground over there?
Do anyone make any quality reproductions at all?

If you were actually able to find a set, they would be very expensive-

Re: Hub Caps

They range from about $500 to $900 a set here in Australia .
Just thought i might get lucky with your population saturation over there.
Still cheap at that money for what you get.

Question Re: Hub Caps

This just my opinion, but...

Those wheel covers looked awful cheesy (to me) back then, but they did give the vehicle (64/66 COMET) a good look. Have you thought of using actual chrome reverse wheels?
