Installed it today! I had one of these on my 73 'Cuda but with the satin silver spokes, but went with the satin black this time around. I just love the size and feel of these steering wheels. Also, you can't beat the price! $64.99 at Summit. I had a Summit bucks coupon for $30 bucks so I got the install kit basically free!

Oh, if someone here wants a maroon 130k original wheel let me know! Otherwise it's gonna be trashed.,.,

Joe , I have had that same 13 inch Grant steering wheel in my 87 Camino for about the last 10 years .It is just a couple of inches smaller that the original factory size and it is so comfortable , makes getting in and out the car easier and with power steering the larger wheel is not needed .

Thanks, I have missed the feeling of that wheel since letting go of that 73 'Cuda. And you're right about the size, I think it gives a better feel by being a bit smaller and increasing steering effort just a little but still very easy to turn even at slow speeds.

Really nice! I love the shifter too. Don鈥檛 trash the OEM. Hold on to it....someday someone may need that to properly restore an Elky. It may be you in the future....SAVE it!

My brother -in-laws is constantly reminding me that someone somewhere wants whatever original equipment you replace, and he's right. I went brain-read right after I bought my '68 and trashed the original cracked and thoroughly ugly wheel, because I didn't want to store it. Since then, I've seen them sell on eBay for a nice price. Then there's swap meets where, with patience, you can sell anything in just about any condition. Someone somewhere wants it, no matter what "it" is.
