I'm doing a P/S conversion this week. Installing CPP 500 box, replacing Drag Link and installing a Flaming River tilt column. So I have decide on a Steerng wheel. I'm looking for input for companies that have a good seletion and fair prices.
I like the original look 15" steering wheel.

Grant has an assortment of wheels that cover a wide price range.

I bought a 59 Impala wheel off ebay, but its a 16inch wheel,
fairly large for power steering. I didn't like the cut down versions
of the stocker just because it looked out of place.
Be prepared for sticker shock but I think Colorado Customs
has a Tri-five look wheel
You may want to re-think the column?
Something about horn problems with Flamming River?
Read some of the other threads.

I just bought a metalflake orange wheel from mooneye's. Their made in different colors in limmited quantity. You can see them on grant's web sight. I bought it to match my 57. Still waiting for it to get here.

Another company is Budnik. They sell both Wheels and Steering Wheels.
I currently have a Grant however, I will be ordering a new Budnik within a week or two. Here is the website;
Good Luck! :tu

"Something about horn problems with Flamming River?"
I've got the horn problem figured out - but at the trouble of making my own horn contact - but the fix is pretty simple.

I installed a Lecarra wheel with my Flaming River. Matches the column and the aluminum on the dash. Pricey....what isn't when you are working on these things.

I had a lecarra "gunsmith" wheel om mine and the horn would occasionally stick. Usually about 11:30 at night. I had a Grant old school wood wheel I put on mine as a replacement, and then found a new horn button that doesn't stick, but decided to leave the wood wheel on it for now. This is the one I really want.http://www.cardomain.com/member_pages/show_image.pl?bg=FFFFFF&image=http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/3/web/3039000-3039999/3039455_6_full.jpg Pardon the poor pic, I took it in the rain.

I went with Banjo style billet wheel from Klassixinc in CA. Wheel, adaptor, horn button and shipped for about $266. Thanks for all the input!:D
