Default Looking for 1988 / 1989 17" Wheel Center Caps

Hi Everyone! Newbie here and hoping to find a lead to locate at least 3 of the OEM 1988 / 1989 locking center caps in the machined aluminum finish. Trust me when I tell you that I tried EVERY Corvette site, eBay, Craigslist, etc., and nothing can be found.

What's even more puzzling is site such as ZIP and Ecklers USED to offer them, but since discontinued them due to low demand. It perplexes me that one can find parts dating back to the 60s, but these specific caps are literally non-existent.

Here is a photo of one of my 3 caps in which the clear became compromised, resulting in oxidation. Car is a 1989 with only 33,000 miles.

Any help locating 3 caps and/or a source would be incredibly appreciated.

Bob

Welcome to the forum.
If none of the aftermarket suppliers have them, the only other place I can think of to look is the Corvette salvage yard called Contemporary Corvettes. I think it's in Pennsylvania. But they have an online presence that you can check out.

Thanks 73Shark! Yes, I tried them. I was hoping that one of their 'Wrecks of the Week' was an 88/89. Thanks again! Bob

We have a Corvette section on the Chevrolet forum that you might try putting a wanted post in the For Sale Section. It's a shot in the dark.
