1964 Steering Wheel

Post by joswald »

My steering wheel is shot. It has cracks everywhere. Are there any stock steering wheels out there that are in decent condition?

You can actually repair a pretty bad wheel I and others here have done it I am pretty happy with mine and I need to get a stitch on leather wrap for mine but haven’t measured it yet , might be something to do while I am sitting in the house avoiding the heat :wink: and needing to. Continue exercising my bum hand.https://youtu.be/4260X8E-kr0

Waiting on the wrap still, if it fits right I will post a link back for anyone else looking for a proper firing wrap for a '64-'65 and any other that uses the same or similarwheel
See Ya,

mine was cracked up all over & brittle so I completely encased the hoop in epoxy,& fixed cracks at the spokes base;

after I took 5'' out of the hoop to make it smaller;

Image

a lot of sanding;

Image


filled in the finger grips & made the hoop fatter,here it is with one side done;

Image

painted

Image

then covered it in leather;

Thanks Joe! I'm still running the 8 ball but if I toss anything it is wore smack dab out or big & in the way. t handle needs a heli coil but I'll keep it,wall hanger. Lavron would toss something before I would! :D

Not much hope for you, then. Now if Pop tossed something you'd keep, then you're totally hopeless. :lol: :lol:

In my dreams I have one, plus a nice temperature controlled shop with a lathe and mill some big metal breaks a nice welder and a big screen tv :lol: a few recliners maybe and a fridge with snacks fully stocked in case I never want to leave :? and why would. You?(internet was included there)
Neighbor stopped by yesterday evening he lives in Arkansas but has property here adjoining ours. Wanted to see the Comet so I started her up. For him and let him soak in some of that cammed six 8) He said hehad had a 64 more door with a 170 auto, says he wished he had. Kept it :lol: said he liked the lump lump, lump of my cam choice and certainly does not sound like six in there
Guess it impressed him, he was back today and brought a friend, maybe I should start charging admission :lol: He was asking me if a 250 was a bored out 200 and I told him no it was a factory stroked 200 8) (long stroking 200)
