The snow flakes as far as i know, came out in the alloy finish, or painted on things like the XE ESPs. The only other wheel close to the snowflake that I know of, is the Aunger hotwires.

I'm pretty sure some ghia's and ED classic got polished ones, the EA S pack got silver finish, and some early 80's falcon, perhaps the XE had gold ones?

XE ESP matte Gold finish face, centre cap matches spoke pattern as shown.

ZL Fairlane matte silver finish

EA S pack same wheels etc different centre cap.
Image

XE Ghia machine finish inside of spokes painted grey then covered in a clear plastic coating, chrome protruding centre cap with Ghia badge in the centre.
Image

XF Ghia, NC Sportsman and probably other models use the same wheel as XE Ghia but the inside of the spokes are painted black. These wheels were still available from Ford in the late 90's and maybe later.

I now have snowflakes on my ZL.
I got them free from my mechanic.
They were dull and lifeless.
I got them polished. Well they don't polish them but cut them. The insides are black.
I have ghia caps that I sprayed with couch, cough, chrome paint. After about 5 coats they look OK
