You guys have some nice stuff, I can’t even read the post they are so nice.
Old, stock, worn, cracked F1 wheel on the F1 box in my hot rod. It’s not worthy but form follows function on my car.
Love the pictures, Building a 1933 Chevy and like the 58-62 Corvette wheel but like a full leather heavier grip 15 inch wheel. Have a Lecarra banjo wheel on my 32 Ford and like it but need something different for the new builder and kind of need for mock up of column. Thanks Guys

My brother probably welded that wheel. He went to work at Covico right out of high school. In the late 60's he was welding hundreds of them a day.

I read that first photo is really a Kaiser Fraser wheel that Ford bought and used in his 49-51 shoe boxes. The "F" looks like the "F' , Kaiser Fraser used not the Ford Logo.
Is that true?
I probably bought several of the one's that he welded! I grew up in Covina, just a mile or so from Covico and worked in a body shop just a couple doors down from their shop during the mid '60s...
