Rally wheel hubcap to look closer to stock ideas?

Are there any ways to dress up a set of rally wheels to temporarily look a bit more 60's? The ones that the PO had were like this with the beauty rims and cap. Only pic I have in profile is the blowout that caused a new tire set. I then went with what was local as a white wall...I am hoping to get wider white walls later on and rims and hub caps that are more stock. Issue Ill have will be 6 lugs that I haveI guess vs the standard 5.

Not that this will help much, but I wanted the same "vintage" look, as well, but with a newer wheel so I painted my Rally style the same body color. The Fawn was before my disc swap, and the green was after. Sorry the quality isn't great, but these are pics of pics, as they were taken 20 years ago. The chrome smoothies were the first set of rims I put on after the disc swap as they had a dual lug pattern.

You can run a full hubcap. I ran these for a while :

Thanks for digging out the pics and posting! Helps. I like having the body color accented like that.

Good option as well, I'll look around for hubs that fit my rims and look good enough to get by for a while. Thanks!
Love the orange structure there. Cool.
