Chevy steering wheels

I've been told that any Chevy steering wheel will fit any Chevy column regardless of year. I would like to put a 60's wheel on a 70-80s column. Can I do it?

The spline may be the same, but I think it would look funny....70s-80s columns were fatter than 60s columns........

Spline is the same----columns are fatter on the later columns as Poncho pointed out.

They can be made to work---Ididit sells a ring to fill the gap and quite possibly the necessary stuff to make the turns work.

The cancel cam (or pins) are on the base of the wheel on the earlier wheels, where the cam is a separate part that fits between the wheel and turn switch. (also part of the horn contacts)

I didn't think the wheel its self made the turn signals work. There is a cam below the wheel nut is'nt there? The wheel is the last thing to go on. Thanks for the info though, I will check on the parts you mentioned.
