66 Steering wheel

Post by Moggy on Wed Dec 31, 2014 12:57 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone have a decent condition original steering wheel for a 66 G10?
Preferably complete with horn ring my horn currently is a button on the dash in a very hard to get to location I've had to let loads of idiots off cos I cant reach it quick enoigh!

The stock button gets in the way when I am driving and they don't always work correctly,,,,,so I put a button on the front of the shift collar right where your fingers hit if you were pushing on the stock button,,,,,,,

So the 66 didn't have a d shaped horn ring like a Chevelle or Impala?
If it fits I am not sure I care, how much.

If you are not hung up on a stock wheel, several aftermarket hot rod wheels fit nice with center horn buttons that work. Grant and Mooneyes wheels work. Here is a 15" Mooneyes in metallic blue using the Grant adapter kit for GM in my van, easy install with adapter kit, it has a shallow less than 3" dish, some are deeper and sit too high...still easy to steer with 15", stock is more like 16.5"?

Since this pic was taken , I've painted that radio adapter plate black, looks much better....had to use a plate since a PO hacked up the dash for a huge 60's radio install....easy fix was a plexiglass plate mounted with fancy license plate bolts...

Doni, Nice idea putting gauges in the ash tray cut out! First time I noticed that in any of your van pics!

On this topic...

Has anyone found a good way to not only repair a crack in the wheel but also keep paint adhered to it?

Stock wheel for me all the way. It's one of the things gives these vans a unique look. One of my favorite things on the van.
