The newest ride, coming home this weekend. Not quite round and some kind of funky hand grips on both sides. '62 Newport.
I think the KOOLEST steering wheel of the 50s is the 59 Olds,by far the BEST!!

I'm like a cop & prefer DONUTS!
Stock 49 Chevy,shot with Duplicolor Metal Specks orange + 10 coats of clear and a bullet center cap.
That's really nice, almost as cool as that Olds wheel.
Ya, I'm a cheap bastard. What's your point?

I will go for a transparent Lincoln steering wheel in my -51 baby-Lincon. Still need to have a steering wheel custom made, it will be in a transparent green tint to go with the planned colur of the car. Though mine is a -51 with the original gold inlays in the spokes and the original center button, will keep it that way.
Heres Mine, and a link.
1951 ford ?
Heres what I made for my 27 T Lakes modifed. Started with some scrap 1/4" alloy and then made the wood from a local native hardwood. The finish on the alloy is bead blasted then clear coated.
Cost me nearly nothin exceptin for th quick release hub!
Built this for my roadster, from scratch, but using a Grant billet boss and horn push.....................
I always loved the 1959 Cadillac ... but could only afford a 1954 ... for now ...
My 1963 Mercury Comet steering wheel
Crestliner in my 51 F-1.
That wheel is one of my favorites.
I love these, I wish I could afford to put one in my Art Deco '42 Chevy.
Cool stuff man...
Here is an NOS 12" Superior I got off a buddy's speed shop wall some time ago.
here is what im using for now.
Is there much flex in this. My head says is strong, but transparency tricks the head to thinking nope. I do like it. That is for sure.
Love this one. Thanks for sharing it.
Limeworks, right? EXACTLY the wheel I'm scratching the coin together for! How do you like it?
Sold this one Its a smoothed 40 ford steering wheel ,Im doing the better one I have right now ,I like them better without the ribs.

This one was the original wheel in the '41 chevy truck my great-grandfather bought new. My dad had it on his garage wall for years, and I decided to use it in my A.
