Steering wheel - what to get or not to ?


Recommended Posts

My original 71 steering wheel is cracked and can now feel it. Its a stock wheel with the burlwood script.  Thinking about the 3 spoke comfort grip or 4 - spoke sport wheel NK4 . Is there any repops I should stay away from or someone has experience with good or bad?   

 

Thanks

I just ripped out the tilt wheel in my ‘70 and put this in.  Burns my hands if I park the car in the sun. 
 

 

(Kidding)

Great subject… I was going to ask members the same thing… Mine is cracked and I've been looking to change it …

The 3 spoke is for the 70 and the 4 spoke is for the 71 if going for the stock look. 

Good call. That’s exactly what we both have.

Me too! Lol.  3 spoke is on "Big Red", my 70 SS and the 4 spoke is on "Barn Find", my 71 402 auto.

Complete kits are available for both wheels.

I have the 4-spoke in my 71. I have a 3-spoke sport wheel to put in the 70 but still need to get all the hub hardware to put it in the car.

You don't like my antique orange helmet? Lol. Only cost 99.00 decades ago. Lol it matched the 71 Chevelle that I had at the time. Lol

Or the vinyl cover the gets wrapped with the string. Just where do you put the knot?  

Right at the top.... Helps to see if the alignment is still good.

I've decided on the old school chain steering wheel. 😉.  Its a tough call. Not a purist and I like the looks of them both..  Gonna be a tough decision...

The one on the right looks interesting..... Keep in mind how much of a "dish" effect you want to go with. I found that the flat ones felt strange while driving in traffic.
