    I promise pictures are coming soon!

    The steering wheel in my van is missing some chunks and while it's no where near the top priority, it's annoyed my wife enough that she's decided she will pay to replace it. Now the problem is I can't find anyone selling one!

    Called C&G and the salesman said the truck steering wheels are different. The picture looks similar but I will trust their experience.

    Any sources you guys know of?

    Thanks!

    I see some of the Hot Rod Experts on TV fix the Voids with PC7 or JB Weld epoxies. Looks easy enough. Give it a whirl!

    2nd generation Econiline wheels can be used with the metal part from yours. They come in many colors.

    FYI,,,   ALL 1961 to 1974 ECONOLINE steering wheels are from the same mold and all are identical to each other in that respect. Beginning in 1967 Ford ADDED an emergency turn signal unit which uses a different brush contact than the 1961 to 1966 Econolines used by moving the contact ring from the turn signal itself to a now added contact plate under the steering wheel itself. SAME STEERING WHEEL but now painted in different colors AND the added plate. Same wheel, same brush and black insulator but added horn contact.  MEANING THAT you can use ANY 1967 to 1974 Econoline steering wheel by removing the added horn contact plate and using it in any 1961 to 1966 Econoline using the non E signal turn signal unit. If you have a 1967 then simply use it with its added horn contact for your turn signal unit.
