Templar

This is a nickel plated brass hubcap for a Templar automobile built in Cleveland, Ohio. The Maltese Cross on the cap's face was the symbol of the medieval Knights Templar after whom the car was named. Templars were built in limited numbers from 1917 to 1924. They were billed as America's "Super Fine Small Car", and they were very fine automobiles. Four cylinder overhead valve engines powered these sleek small cars, giving great performance. Templars featured standard equipment and options that few other cars could match. The company failed for a variety of reasons that had nothing to do with the excellence of their automobiles.

The hubcap is a heavy brass casting. Thread diameter is 2 3/4 inches, and the distance across the faces of the wrench hex is 2 1/8 inches. The hubcap needs to be cleaned up and replated for full restoration. There is a very small dent in one of the arms on the cross, and there is a small scrape on the edge of the face that should be dressed with a file before replating. This is a very rare find that could make a Templar owner very happy, or could be a great addition to a hubcap collection.
