    Hey Guys,

    New to chevs and i have a pickup with a steering wheel I'm not into and I want to replace it with an original 50's one. Is there any other models that will fit? Or should i be looking at a repro 55 1st series one only? Its a kustom so it doesnt have to be the exact one it came with.
    Heres a pic of what I have now

    there is already an adapter on what you're running. most after markets will bolt onto that.get one you like and your halfway there.

    the stock steering wheels were flat back then...they went to the dished design in 57. so you probably want a stock steering wheel, from an early to mid 50s car/truck. Since your truck does not have the factory turn signal switch, you can use pretty much whatever you want.
