    That definitely looks like a Covico judging by the straight spokes.

    Does anyone have a picture of a Turquoise wheel?

    Hey man... If you ever come across one of these silly little glittery go kart wheels I'll be more than happy to relieve you of it. :D

    Here is a copper/gold Superior 500 Wheel I just got for the wagon. The 2 spoke Covico had no dish what so ever and I kept busting my knuckles on the gear shift lever and the turn signal arm. This should fit much better!

    I had the same problem with the turn signal lever in my Comet with a Cragar wheel. I pulled the lever off, removed the knob, sawed it in half, put the knob back on and replaced the lever. Works perfectly and no more catching the backside of my hand on it.

    I thought of doing that as well but with the column shift on the wagon the reverse pull-towards you then down motion out of park also hit the back of the steering wheel.
    I am sure the Covico will find a home in the future!

    Thanks I thought it is a Grant wheel but the fingergrips looked different to other Grants I have seen.

    I got this Superior for $5 at a flea market. Nice chrome, but it looks like the flake and color is over a black core and is worn thin on mine on the front.[​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  29. Can anybody identify this one that I just got a couple weeks ago? It's probably going to find its way into my current '27 RPU project. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1413724997.249872.jpg
