  • Body / Glass: Stupid Question , are all 55 steering wheels two tone in color? 2dr president c-body

    I haven't taken the tape off the steering wheel yet ! I wonder what's under the electrical tape!

    I don't think sedans were, unless special ordered. I would expect the President Coupe to be so equipped. Shrocks remanufacture the two-tone steering wheel.

      I think with a little research of the '55 Brochures you will find that all top of the line trim levels of Champions, Commanders and Presidents had the two tone Deluxe wheel with full circle horn rim.
      We have a middle of the many '55 Trim level Commander 4 Doors here, and it has the two tone, Beige and White.

        55 Steering wheel diameter?

        Any idea if hardtop, sedan, pwr/vrs non power steering cars are the same and what years interchange from 53 thru 56? Me thinks I need a tutorial on 53 thru 56. cheers jimmijim

          My -55 Champion 4-door sedan is a Regal, so it has a full chrome ring, but I saw a -55 Commander 4-door sedan a while ago that wasn't Regal & it had no ring at all, but they're both two-colored.

            My '55 President Deluxe is single coloured and has a full circle horn rim. I think the full circle horn rim was standard on all Presidents.

              OH MY! If a previous owner really wrapped that steering wheel with plain old regular electrical tape...when you remove it, you will probably have a sticky gooey mess!... UGH!

              You didn't ask a stupid question. Other posters provided some good answers. Mine is the stupid one...but I really hope you only have some type of vinyl wrap without the mess electrical tape could cause.

                  53 to 56 will interchange, but there are some differences in the diameter of the horn ring, as well as some have full rings and most have half rings.

                  The C/K cars have a smaller diameter wheel than the sedans and wagons.

                  Power steering vs non power steering cars have the same steering wheels.
