Wanted: 1968 Standard Hubcaps - Grade A or NOS

Hey all,

I'm hoping to keep the factory appearance of my car intact, but it's almost impossible to find good hubcaps. I might end up going with styled steel wheels at some point, but I want to see if I can put together a great set of hubcaps before I go down that road. These are the ones with the red anodized centers with the walking cat logo, and they're almost always faded away.

Since everything on the car will be new and shiny, I'm looking for exceptionally nice ones, basically like new or NOS if possible. Rich red centers, not curbed, and black paint all intact. I know this is a tall order. Anyone holding out?

There's actually a pretty nice one on ebay right now that I might snag, but wanted to see if anyone here has a full set stashed away.

I know what you're thinking - "doesn't he work at the Cougar parts mecca?" Yes, but the hubcaps we get off of parts cars are not generally in the kind of shape I'm looking for. There's one NOS one hanging in the office but it's part of the wall display, I don't think Don wants to part with it. Here's a pic for reference:

Thanks in advance!
