Thanks, EmilBarnabas...I had purchased one of the OEM steering wheels from eBay, only to find that the spokes, where they connected to the base, were too thick (by about 1/2"). Could have ground them down...perhaps I should have but for $180, the wheel should fit I think!
I have a 63 Econoline Truck. I am looking for a Steering Wheel, the nice one that had the chrome ring on the inside of the wheel and a steering box. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
The chrome ring you mention is the difference between the standard horn button and the deluxe horn button. The steering wheel is the same for both. The only difference in the steering wheels is black or white. The deluxe horn button with chrome ring could have come on either color wheel.
Steering Wheels from that period in good condition expensive ... go find a 68 to 73? old motorhome and yard out the steering wheel ... just change out the underside turn signal guts with the older econo ... you are better off getting your steering box rebuilt and the deluxe chrome horn buttons available re-chromed but not cheap in WA state
