Re: Show me your steering wheel

Had this Weld wheel on my 67 for quite a few years to match its flame theme. Replaced it with a Lecarra unit a couple of years before I sold the car. The Weld wheel is all I have left now of the GR8PMKN.

Is that steering wheel from con2r in Beaverton, Oregon? They have a great selection of wheels, very customizable, but very expensive. I used their site to customize a steering wheel and it was over $600. Nonetheless if I had really deep pockets, I'd consider going with them.

$600 is brutal. But I spent $200 on mine and it’s nice, but it’s not the perfect wheel.
In retrospect, I wish I’d have saved longer and bought the perfect (to me) wheel.
I would have had the wheel long after I’d forgotten about the $600.
I wonder if they have sales throughout the year or would do a group purchase for Chevelle.com.

I had a much more expensive Billet Specialties steering wheel but the large polished horn button and spokes were too shiny/distracting for my liking. I spent a lot of time looking for a smaller diameter wheel that looks similar to the factory comfort grip wheel. This was as close as I could find at the time. Grant makes a similar steering wheel, but the spokes are flat so you have to use their taller hub.
Do you happen to have a pic of the steering wheel or a part number by chance ?
Thanks

Yes it's a "Con2r". They can build you any imaginable steering wheel you always dreamed of... 2 spokes, 3 spokes, 4 spokes, available in any dish you want. Same goes for the colors, they have unlimited choices. But... NOT CHEAP!

Volante S6. Pics in earlier posts on this thread. Enter that name on Summit Racing's website or Google it and you'll easily find it. Tons of options on spoke finish, rim materials and wraps, horn buttons, etc.

Re: Show me your steering wheel

I am wanting a wood Volante S6 steering wheel for my 67 with tilt.The factory adapter for a wood wheel (part #3930062) won't work on a tilt column. I haven't bought anything yet so I can't look at it to see for myself. I don't want to spend in excess of $300 only to have to return it. Can anyone tell me why or is their a way to make it work?

You don't need to buy their adapter. That wheel has 6 screw holes that will mate to an original (or repro) GM adapter for your 67 with tilt. You may need to buy or fabricate the little spacer that goes on top of the adapter, to take up the space between the adapter and the bottom spoke. (The bottom spoke on the original GM wheel is lower than the other 2 spokes.) That's what I did for my 72 with tilt -- I bought the adapter and horn button parts separately and fabricated the spacer. At that time a few years ago, Volante wasn't even selling the adapters.

Thanks for your input. I currently have a Grant wheel and will need a wood wheel adapter. 67/68 adapter is it's own animal. From everything I have read said it doesn't work with 67/68 tilt columns. Someone on Summit's feedback even said it won't work on a tilt column. I would really like to know why so I could possibly figure a way around it

Hopefully someone here with a 67-68 will chime in about the tilt vs non-tilt adapter (or "hub" as it's usually called). GroundUp sells the 67-68 hub and says it's for tilt and non-tilt columns. On the other hand, GroundUp sells different turn signal kits for tilt vs non-tilt columns. Maybe try calling GroundUp or NPD if you don't get an answer here?

Re: Show me your steering wheel

I just pulled the trigger on a Volante S6 wheel fit my 67 Chevelle. I saw no warning that it would not fit with a Ididit tilt wheel. Actually, they make an adaptor to fit an Ididit colum. Where is this info listed?
