I rescued it from a scrap pile a while ago, it's got no markings on it. Can anyone identify it and it is worth anything before I bastardise it for another garage clock.

What size wheel does it fit?  13"?  14"?  It looks like something Japanese from the early 70s.  That's a rough guess, can't do any better at the moment, sorry.

Obviously possessing superior knowledge of all things automotive, finding contradicting everything on here as some form of game, which some find pretty tedious, but sadly not tedious enough to just fuck off as a consequence.

Internet points to that man there, I thought it was possibly 70s Datsun, no idea how this would stay one mind.

 

I just need to source some cheapo clock motors, I've a bunch of tin ashtrays from the same scrap pile!

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

To be fair,those mirados were very well made and about the same price as one genuine wheeltrim. Around that time I worked in a shop knocking out auto plas trims for £35 a set.
It wasn't until the mid 90s that really cheap market stall / pound shop wheeltrims started to flood the market and kill off the better quality stuff.
That and the arrival of shitty multi fit alloys with ditch finder tyres for £349 with easy 29% Apr finance.

The question is can anyone identify the red car those Mirado trims are fitted to in the Halfrauds catalogue?

I'd say MK3 Escort as well in the Halfrauds catalogue.

Another vote for MK3 Escort. Anyway, here's another one (centre of pic):

 

20110630-IMG_4147.jpg

 

Spotted at arguably NZ's best scrap yard a couple of years ago. Looks very much like a MK2 Cavalier SR(I) alloy but obviously not. Most probably Japanese, I reckon. Nice detailing of the valve cap hole which is the same size as the wheel nut ones. Any ideas? Feel free to ID others (Mazda 626 one in left foreground).
