Steering Wheel Dilemma!

Recommended Posts

RetroJohnny    27

Hey everyone! So my 1989 Buick Reatta when I bought it had an 80's model Riviera steering wheel and it is in terrible shape. So my two options at this point are either 1. Find an actual Reatta steering wheel (which has been impossible thus far) or option 2. Buy a 70$ Grant steering wheel on Amazon and hope for the best. So any input or guidance into the right direction would be great! by the way the interior is Tan... :)

Welcome to the Forum, RetroJohnny!

 

You could try posting your request here- http://forums.aaca.org/forum/96-reatta-buysell/  and maybe a Vendor here has what you need.

 

To make it easier for us to help you in the future with any other stuff- please go to  http://forums.aaca.org/settings/signature/  and include the year and any accessories your Reatta has in the Signature line. That way- we'll all know what you've got. There are a few differences in the 4 years Reattas were produced.

 

Also- a wealth of useful information can be found here  http://reattaowner.com/roj/  It is owned and run by a Member here named Ronnie. It is also a nice Forum to belong to, for helping yourself and other Reatta owners. Membership is also free.

 

We all try to work together here, to help each other keep our cars running and safe. We have experts and newbies- but everyone has something to contribute here.

 

Have fun, and hope you enjoy your ReattaB)

I swapped my Reatta's wheel for a wooden Riviera wheel so have actually two tan extras. They are not perfect but are good "daily driver" grade.

If you are interested you can email me at; lemke1044@aol.com

I have used Craft Customs and their quality is great and they are also very easy to deal with. They did my wooden Riviera wheel. I paid way more then $200.00 but then again I had a lot more work done...

There is a place in the Dallas area that recovers original steering wheels.  Their work is superior but the price is around $200

Craft customs is the name and here is the link

I actually looked into them but their price was a little too high. They quoted me for the Riviera wheel at about $450..

Indeed they do a great job. Used them 2-3 years ago for a burgundy re-cover - but not at $200.  Price was $400 excluding shipping (and that was in 2014).

You should check out what Dave has to offer. You probably won't find a better deal.
