I have the white caps it came with. I may have to restore those. I also have a set of chrome dog dishes I can pop on for now but I thought in this group there might be someone with a clean original set. There can’t be a lot of fools like me looking for the cheapest hubcaps ever!

Are your white caps that you have shaped like these? Then they are caps from an earlier model.

No but it really isn’t that important to have 1977. I happen to have 1 like yours. Thanks.

My 69 has fewer miles than that. But that's since I bought it in 1989.;)

The 67-72 Parts guy down in Olympia has a restored set of the caps you’re looking for. For a mere $300!

Thanks. That is what I am looking for but I really don’t want to spend that at this point. After I do an overall paint I’d feel better about spending that but right now the truck looks used. Thanks though. First set.

Thanks. I can’t wait to get the bodywork and paint done. Worth doing even though I originally thought it didn’t require it.

I just posted them to stop the "Guess which hubcaps Rick is talking about".
Or, if you actually want a new perfect set.
Anyone who knows what they have will want half this much, if they're straight, regardless of finish condition.
If you are on a super budget, keep searchin. Some cheap ones will be found, someday, maybe.

OP would be well served to start collecting them now….
3 is better than zero.

Like I said previously, I spent months searching for the newer style of 8 lug GMC caps and a pair of matching 3/4 ton (small hole) 4wd front caps.
Ultimately a bought a full set of the GMC ones that were just happenstance that happened to work out. (Seller lived hundreds of miles away but regularly made trips to Seattle).
And a buddy found a set of front ones randomly and snagged them for me.

GM poverty caps are one of the very few things that aren’t being reproduced by any mfg for these trucks. Combined with them being not popular back in the day and easily damaged, makes them hard to locate. Even harder for older or lower production number styles.

Welcome from New Hampshire!

Beautiful truck you got there, that's gotta be the cleanest one around!
One of my best friends lives in New Sharon, don't see too many old trucks around those parts that aren't rotting off their frames
