Sorry to all, I did not proof my topic before I submitted it, I made a typo in the listing regarding the SUBJECT. It did not make much sense without having the word "Simulated" included, it was well after it was posted that I reviewed it for content. Anyhow that better defines what specifically I am Wink asking about. Sorry to double post on this same subject. I believe by clarifying now, I will be better able to get some valid responses. In the first post, it appeared a little vague as to what type of hub cap I was referring to..  Thanks

Gino, the part numbers are as follows:

1965/1966 - 3872861
1967/1968/1969 (Type A - "5 spoke simulated mag wheel") - 3903086 (RPO N96)
1968-1969 (Type B - "6 spoke simulated mag wheel") - 3918080 (RPO PA2)

And here are three pictures. The upper is the 65-66 3872861, the middle is 67-69 3903086 (RPO N96) and the lower is 68-69 3918080 (RPO PA2). It also appears the 3903086 is now being reproduced, but I have no idea how good they are.

Ed,

Thanks for your response and pictures.   So would you say that early produced 67 Camaros  from Aug. 66, Sept. 66, Oct. 66, and Nov. 66  would be outfitted with the 65-66 version. This being that this part (PN 3872861 was on hand before there was a second variation PN. 3903086 of the hub cap.

As far as I know, the 67 Camaro came with the 3903086 covers from the start of production. Troy or Daniel might have more info so I'll ask them.

Thanks Ed,

 I cannot seem to find a part number anywhere except on the back of the bow tie center cap. It is casted into the part but is not anywhere near to the numbers you gave out. It is obvious that the hub cap was made of a few parts and this was just a casting number for the cast spokes. I looked around the edges of the rolled and formed steel and no numbers appear.

Most parts don't have a part # on them.

To have a different part number, there must be at least some subtle differences, I am trying to figure out what the differences were between the early 65-66 and those that followed. The first two pictures appear similar.

So then what PN is 552205 for?

552205 is the casting number for one of the parts. In this case it's the center cap.

Ed

HERE'S a set on ebay and a good description of the differences between the 65-66 and the 67-69.

Quote
The later style (#552205) has the center cap flush with the spokes.. The earlier style (#551851) ( LOWER RIGHT HAND OF PICTURE) has the center cap raised above the spokes.
