stock wheel on aftermarket GM style column?

Are there any option (short of cutting up a wheel) to get a stock style wheel on a GM spline column? I thought I saw one at the Reunion but could find the owner.

I know this has been asked before, but they are old threads and missing photos (photobucket). I'm hoping for a recent solution.

I don't recall any kind of adapter that will let you use the stock steering wheel on a modern column. But here is an option that could work for you. It has a similar look. https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Speed...eel,25106.html This is just the first link I grabbed. You can shop around and possibly find a better price.

Grafting together a GM hub on your old wheel would be major surgery, but doable. You'd better be comfortable with your welding skills, then you'll need to do all the 'body work' on it after you're done.

flaming river makes a steering column for f100's that accepts the stock wheel. I bought and installed one on my truck and am way happy with it so far. I could post a pic later.
Not sure if that is what you are looking for but is how I chose to get the stock wheel.

there is a place(cant remember the name right now) that i talked to and you can send them your stock wheel and they will replace the original spline with a gm style one. I think they charge like $400-500 though.
