Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

I had a black 72 wheel on my truck since like 2006 that I took off of my grandpa's old 72 when it was parked for good. It had about 60K miles on it when I took it off (truck was a 72 C30 dump truck). The wheel held up really well. Around 4-5 years ago it started to develop some small cracks and I think the carolina sun finally got to it, because it reached a point where it developed huge cracks and pieces were falling off over a short period of time. I finally replaced it with a 67/68 repop wheel when I lost a chunk of skin on one of the cracks.

I agree the blue wheels were terrible. My family owned a ton of these trucks when I was growing up and even in NY's "milder" (not much sun) weather I still remember seeing some of the blue 69-72 wheels with dang near no plastic left even in the late 80's/90's. My thought had always been the different colored plastics deteriorated differently in UV light and blue was the worst? Plastics were relatively new back then. Anyone remember a lot of the 80's GM cars (especially the Caddies) where after 8-10+ years the plastic/rubber pieces between the body/bumpers and/or taillights/body just rotted away?

Great links, thank you Jim. I was trying to say I need pneumatic die grinder. I believe 4" is the ticket. Lots of disks I'll need for the this and thats.

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

I want a stock steering wheel for my '67 in the WORST way.. PO tossed a cheesy Grant on there, and it's not even on straight! No power steering, and a 13" wheel - They don't call it Armstrong for nothing!!

Anyone know where I can get an original wheel for my truck? I'd prefer it in black, if possible.

Watch your local Craig's List. You never know when one will pop up. I got mine from a lady who was closing her art gallery and had it on the wall for decades. Forty bucks and it was mine.

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

Here is the steering wheel from my 1972 C10. The truck has 87,00 miles and the wheel had one of those plastic wrap lace things on it. I don't know how long the wrap had been on but was very brittle when I peeled it off. One crack ( as pictured ) and don't remember if it was there when i bought the truck in 2014 or has happened with the wheel in storage in my unheated garage since the summer of 2015.

A little cleanup and it'll look close to new, except for the crack.

I'm sure they don't
I had a feeling it was going to be different!
Any idea,What color interior would it have been with? Maybe red?

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

I think the steering wheel in this truck is the oxblood color. the pictured interior color was a one year only 1969 color.

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

Ok. Here are some more colors.
The upper left is one you would see in medium and dark olive trucks that had green interior.
The other two, I'm thinking we're in turquoise interiors of 69/70 maybe?
Or medium green which looked more like aqua /blue green ?

Anyone have these colors still in their trucks?

If you have another red lying around, I'm looking for one (or the correct paint to restore mine).
