  • Interior: 57 Hawk Steering Wheel:56 Hawk Steering Column

    Will a 57 Hawk steering wheel fit a 56 Hawk steering column?...

  • #2
    First hand knowledge here: NO. The 56 was a flat wheel and the 57 was a dished wheel. I got a 57 wheel out of a junk yard in 1969 and tried to put in on a 56 column. It has a gap of a couple of inches. It will fit but not properly.

    You would have to change out the column with a 57 C or K for it to fit properly. Not hard but you have to have all the correct parts.
