Question Hub cap part numbers

I want to get a set of babymoons for my 62 Overlander. The wheels are 15" and the clips are riveted on. I realize that the original style that used the clips is impossible to find. Can someone please provide part numbers and manufacturers I could try? The mounting diameter is 8".

My understanding is you will have to change rims too. I think most modern baby moons fit the newer style wheels. Every once in a while you see those type of hubcaps on e-bay

Early Ford pickup hubcaps supposedely fit. They are available without a logo.
I forget the place, but I posted it in another thread just the other day.

Airstream Hubcaps

Baby moons and trim rings are available at www.bobdrake.com I have a set and they went on fine, really spruced up my wheels. The part numbers are:

Baby Moon Hubcaps: 01A-1130-BM

Beauty Rings: 01A-18303-15

These are the plain baby moons, but any 1940's Ford center cap will work.

I have the same wheel as silver fly pictured above with the clips.
I was looking for baby moons and saw the on bobdrake.com, but for baby moons and beauty rims I will need to pay $50.00 a wheel. At that price I might get new aluminum rims.

Anyone know of any sources for baby moons and beauty rims that will fit my wheel with the clips.

O.K. I now have the babymoons from Bob Drake and they fit the hub area perfectly, except that the clips are inboard of the cap. They will just fall off. I don't think anyone ever bend them all in as every wheel is exactly the same. I need to come up with a way to hold these caps on. Has anyone had to modify the clips with something to make them work with the Bob Drake babymoons? I think slipping a small piece of fuel hose over each clip might work.
