I am wondering if anyone has used an adapter kit to use an aftermarket steering wheel witha 51 champion? thanks

I am pretty sure its different then the later cars. You can check
the Grant website or send them an email to see if they carry it. My
dad bought a '69 Avanti II years ago the steering wheel was actually
falling apart. I helped it along by removing all the plastic to
leave the inner hub/spline. Then we chose a steering wheel that we
liked (later we realized it was too small - so chose wisely) and I
used the original hub as an adapter by drilling holes for the Grant
steering wheel to fit. Later, Grant started selling a Stude adapter.
So if you can not find one, and your steering wheel its in REALLY bad
shape like my dads was, you have another option.;)

After you go through the hassel of removing the wheel measure the splines and their number. The later cars used 13/16" X 36 spline. Same as early GM power steering. Just for my curiousity and I might be able to steer you in the right direction to find the Grant numbers.
