'41 Chevy Deluxe "spinner" wheel in my '37 Chevy pickup
1940's Chris Craft boat steering wheel. Original paint. The horn button is 1935 Ford, I think.
This is a wood rimmed aluminum spoked aftermarket wheel from the 1920's. I think the rim is walnut.
Louie, is the top right wheel an NOS? No hub holes drilled in it. And look at all the other real old ones with four holes instead of the modern three!
Another saved for some unknown reason, what is it? REO? Stude? I used to know but have forgotten. Looks like wood but is not, lots of detail though...............
Cool '41 and '52 Studebaker wheels. I believe these were both accessory options for each respective year.
I need to work on the scale.
If you didn't have such a big hand it would look perfect!

That looks like it's a wheel off a "regular" 57 Mercury, so if it's actually on a Turnpike, it's been swapped.
Turnpikes had a similar wheel, but it was flattened on top into more of an oblong shape for what I think was a styling feature. I read somewhere that it was intended to give better leg room, but that doesn't make sense because at normal "rest", the flattened section was at the top. I had two Turnpikes, both had the flattened wheel.
Both styles are cool, though.
