I got a wheel from the gmc coop. It's a great leather wrapped wheel and it bolts right on. Here's a link. They have two different styles..

Check with Fleetpride or another big truck supplier as well as this chassis was a bread truck, school bus, etc, and some generic pieces may fit until you find "perfection".

The Moto Lita style of steering wheel uses an adapter between the steering column and the wheel itself.

Bill, I'd be interested in seeing the back side of the steering wheel you bought.

Next question I have is the height of the steering wheel. Some steering wheels have more "dish" to them than others. That obviously affects how high the wheel will be when you're sitting in the drivers seat. I can't remember right now if our steering wheel feels to "low" or two "high". Have to try it out next time I'm home! Yes we have electric seats to compensate for height but when you're short like me that can be an impact on driving comfort.

Terry,

I've done that but haven't been able to find a 16" steering wheel. The bulk of what you find in places like Autozone are 13" and 14" steering wheels.

Not that I've given up looking!

Grant make a 15" wheel or two that look cool. Adaptors to fit our chassis is not a big deal as it's all GM.

Check it out at Grant Mahogany Grand Touring Steering Wheels - JEGS
