SOLD!! Simulated wood steering wheel with adapter

This wheel has three gaps due to heat. I have looked up repair for these gaps and it does not appear to be to difficult. The adapter has the larger diameter splines. The photos detail what you get. $75.00 plus shipping from northern Calif.

Hi Westds. Is that a factory Corsa wheel, or aftermarket?
Looks similar to the one I had in my '66 convertible, but something about it looks a little different.
Maybe it's the color? Not sure.

Thanks

Paul

As far as I can tell it is a factory wheel. We got three from the same fellow one had a telescopic column. They all looked identical.

Could that be a '64 adaptor? I don't recall my '65 having the metal tabs protruding. A side view or measurement would help determin if what the adaptor is for.

I have never seen a Corvair adapter that looked like that. It looks to be large splines. The metal cone-hub is throwing me!

I would guess a 64-65 Chevelle. Might fit a 60--63 Corvair.

Cone is too deep for the 1960-63 column, in my opinion. I have never seen one with the tabs at the bottom either.

That is a strange unit. Normally the wheel is riveted to the hub. That one is bolted. Also, I have never seen one with the tabs and parts attached inside like that as well.

The 'tabs' is the turn sig cancel used in early 60-63 Corvair. Somewhere around 63 or beginning of 64 it was changed to the plastic style.

There is a diameter difference between the Chevelle version and the Corvair version of the GM wood wheel. I can't remember which one is bigger but IIRC the Corvair version is 5/8" smaller in diameter. That said a Chevelle wheel will still work on a Corvair with the correct adapter, it just makes the distance between the bottom of the wheel and the driver's seat a little tighter.

The 64 Wheel was not riveted on. It was screwed down to a cast adapter. 65-66 were riveted to a stamped steel adapter. (At least until the wheel was removed from the adapter the first time.) I mentioned it might fit a 60-63, not that it was from a 60-63. Maybe someone will be finding out?
