LOL yeah very good point! I haven't put much thought into it yet...I guess that shows..?
When the day comes, and I am focusing on the steering wheel...that should be a good day! I wonder what year that will be?

Thanks AX !

seaves46 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Guys i've just bought the grant boss kit for my 56 .
Grant kit is number 4257 , and i have confirmed with Grants it's the correct one .
My question is has anyone had any trouble actually fitting the boss to their column ?
It is way to tight , and it doesn't even go on far enough to fit the retainer nut .
The spline on my column is ok , and i have actually tried it on a 53 column as well , but to no avail .
The only way i could get it on is to bash it on using a BIG hammer , and i'm not going to do that .
Any ideas ?

steering wheel adapter?

Wondering whether you ever found something satisfactory to work? My application is a '50 Ford F1 with stock column but it has a little (13 inch)Grant wheel that somebody put on a long time ago. I just want a bit larger diameter wheel so in looking I see all kinds of different bolt patterns....3, 5, 8, etc....the little Grant wheel I have on now has a 8 bolt pattern....but I don't know what adapter I need....except guys on here are saying on the one hand a Grant # 4257 adapter/kit is the one for Ford F1 trucks but then on the other hand say that these don't fit worth a crap. Any feedback from you side?

If you aleady have a Grant wheel mounted, you must already have an adapter. Look at the wheel bolt pattern. I'm using a Grant 15" banjo style wheel.
