International steering wheel swap - '60 Lark
I am looking to swap an NOS steering wheel for another at the International meet.
Previous owner got rid of the all black steering wheel on the '60 Lark for a red and black wheel. I would like to go back to an all black wheel. Believe these wheels were used from '57 - '60 (and beyond on floor shifted Champ trucks)
This is the wheel you will get - I will bring the tools...
There is a small place on the front where it is not perfect, which probably is why it was put in a box for surplus parts by Studebaker
Steering Wheel Change
I hate to ask the obvious, but have you considered painting the wheel all black? I once painted a 1957 President Classic Azure Blue and Wedgewood blue steering wheel the blue and white colors using epoxy paints. It came rather well and held up just fine. And believe it or not, I had a friend who was a dentist and he gave me some dental repair material that I fixed a steering wheel with too!

I have thought about that - but it would be a shame to paint over a great original wheel - I hope someone who has a red interior wants to swap their all black wheel for this one...
