Could you have meant a French car? Citroen steering wheel below:
My 64 Chrysler 300K wheel
Judging from your "wheels", you must have quite the collection. Can you show us some whole pictures? Thanks.
Is your name Gallagher?
'59 Plymouth in my Chevy.
This looks like someone throwing up a vanilla milkshake..
I'm not sure which wheels I've shown here but I think the cars below were among them. And to get it back to steering wheels I'll start with my 1965 Buick Riviera Gran Sport..
Wow, that's all I can say, mostly because my drool is shorting out my keyboard! Brian
This is the steering wheel on my '46 Austin gasser:
Love this thread, gotta bring it back up to the top. The first two are a before and after of the '35 Chevy. The third is the interior of the t-bucket.
Here is my 1962 Ghia L6.4 Coupe
Here's the wheel in my '49 Ford Coupe. So far I haven't seen another one like it.
My buddy bought it thinking it was a Chevy "Butterfly" wheel.
When it didn't fit his GM steering shaft, he traded me for a decent 14" green flake wheel.
A wheel restorer at Paso told me that its a fairly rare '55 Mercury accessory wheel...I just know that I like it.
A few years late, but your wheel is definitely a Packard. Not sure on the year as they used the same wheel for a few. The one going in my roadster is a '53 Packard.

Its all about the vintage boat steering wheels
Here's the one I put in my 35 Ford Pickup, I think its MG or Triumph not sure except its British.
Here is the steering wheel I just put in my sedan.
Here's a couple that turn me! 1st pic is an Ansen from the 60's. The 2nd pic is a Cragar that I got into a bidding war on that "Evil Site", I wanted it so bad I paid big $ for it.
Some amazing wheels in this thread, Love 'em!
Not a car wheel, but thought this group would appreciate the work that went into it. Got a few hours in this one.
It's original to my 1956 Crestliner Viking Deluxe (aluminum boat).
Wheel is an Attwood.
See the boat and wheel at Unique Tin in Longview WA in August.
Dash is getting a complete makeover, almost done.
Here's the original look...
And after a bit of time.
The lower trim and the 3rd spoke were made from aluminum tubing. The trim was hammer formed to match the contours of the wheel. The 3rd spoke was squeezed at the top to give it a wider look, and squeezed at the bottom the other way to make it narrow.
The banding between the two colors is aluminum wire, epoxied in place.
Wow, some beautiful wheels.
We have seen some nice banjo wheels, how a bout a red one?
TexasSpeed took this pic. I like it..
here's my 1949 Chevrolet accessory wheel.
Found this wheel in a junkyard, and pick up an old Grant wheel all rust but wheel itself was wood and put on with rivets..
Drilled out rivets, some trimming. drill a few holes on center and found a Pontiac center cap fit perfect.. its different and a lot of people ask about it
The green one is not a Cragar. The Cragar wheels had the small circle on the end of the spokes.
Mine in the Chemical City Coupe...
This and the 59 Chevy wheel are my favorites. I bought one of these wheels from our local Chev dealer in Pa. in 1952 for my first car a 46 chevy. On my 50 that I have now I have a wood wheel that matches my Wabbit dash but if I ever find one of the old Chevy
wheels I sure would consider using it.

Wheel in my Super Deluxe 47. I wrapped it with a "Wheelskins" leather wrap. Makes the skinny wheel a little fatter, which helps the "armstrong" steering, and it's not so slick.
Also, I think it's cooler in the summer heat, and warmer in the winter cold.
