Thanks to all on this. I actually need the trim rings for a 33 Pontiac. Would like to have some on my 34 though.

There was a set of orig stainless ones on Ebay for several weeks at around $200.They needed restoring.Don't know if anyone bought them though.I would have If I needed them.They have always been hard to find.I understand that the ones by Hirsch were of brass and then chrome plated.
