It probably had what is commonly called "baby moon" hubcaps originally, and the Chryslers just happened to also fit.

A PO put on whatever he could easily find, they are not original. I have '51 Chevy moons on mine. Looks beter than bare wheels to me.

Likely a PO change as many hub caps, or wheel covers are interchangeable with the 15" wheels. Ours came with Ford sedan covers. They're less than inspiring.
