Looking for an original 1977 VSonic steering wheel.
« on: September 22, 2017, 02:22:57 PM »
Hello all,
Trying to get the boat back to as original as possible and currently looking for a steering wheel.  I've attached a picture of what I'm looking for.

Thank you,
Mark

The steering wheel itself is fairly standard, it's the metal insert (the chrome on the spokes/center) that might prove almost impossible to source outside of a junk yard/parts boat.

Here's what the steering wheel looks like without the insert.  (kind of hard to see but you get the idea)
1976 200V BR, 351/265+hp  \"Heart & Soul\"

I've actually found the one in your picture on line, which is different than the one in the photo I attached.  The one I'm looking for doesn't have the spokes with holes, but rather tapered plastic inserts on each spoke with a plastic center cap.
