The more I thought about the steering wheel and how important it is for all 6'5" of me to fit in the car's cockpit, the more I realized a larger period wheel probably wasn't going to be the right cal for me. After considering a number of options, from a pricey 1940 Ford replica in 16", to a '56 Corvette spoked wheel, and a litany of ultra cool import wheels in 13" - 15" sizes, I finally decided to take an affordable, conservative approach. I ordered a 13&1/2" three spoke chrome job with a black outer rim from the hot rod company. The type of wheel that coulda found at a Pep Boys back in the sixties, which is, after all, the period I'm shooting for. I can always upgrade it, if I don't like it.
