It's been a while now, since this car has been on the road, just about every Friday nite cruise in , a couple issues developed. Mainly, I'm tired of looking at the steering wheel AND seeing the original horn ring assy hanging above ,my work bench ! So, here goes ! The steering column is from the '85 5th Ave donor car, the 1st pic is the '85 steering wheel, next is a '70 something Plymouth, which is better, 3rd is the '48 wheel

computer problems again........... anyway back to the steering wheel......... some more pictures.......... I used the center hub from the '85 Donor car, as that's where the column came from. Also used the outer ring from the '85, making it 2'' longer
