That would be a real interesting piece Chris. I had a friend back in 1963 who had one of those steering wheels in his Model A, he was killed in a rollover in that car and I later bought the wreck. I junked pretty much everything that was damaged on it,...but the steering wheel I saved and had it for years. The last time I seen it,..it was hanging in my mom's garage at the old home place. Probably at the bottom of a landfill site now.

Cheyenne, what column do you have? That wheel will only fit a pre 1968 column, not a 1968 and up GM column. Splines are different.

OK, Thanks Johnny. I have a '84 Camaro column,...and the Olds column ( considering the year,..the car is a boat ) would be way too long for the application into my Model A. The one that was used in my friends A, was mounted nearly vertical,..where mine will have to go forward to hook up to the shaft on the Cross Steer unit. Thanks for the heads up, appreciate the input.

You could modify an original column for the car. That way you would be able to use the steering wheel you want. Most columns use 3/4" round shafting inside them. Grind 2 flat sides onto it to make it into what is called "double D" and use Borgeson joints to hook up the steering column to the box.Just a thought.
