  1. Gary, you are confirming my thoughts that this is an early '37 style wheel that was replaced by wheels with a horn ring. It is slightly different from the '36 steering wheel in that the "bumps" on the spokes are like round steel rods rather than the more styled ones on this wheel.
  2. It sounds like you need to clean the contacts on the driver control switches.
  3. Thanks Gary, You have gone through some very detailed items. I've seen the '37 brochure and believe it is that wheel. I've found the same wheel through Google searches described as both a '36 and '37 Buick steering wheel. In the photo's I've found that appear to be this wheel. the inside of the hub is the same as the one I'm trying to identify. I agree that it looks very close to a Packard wheel, but Packard wheels of that period had painted not chrome hubs. Here is a discussion on HAMB asking to identify the same style steering wheel. https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/thr
  4. I'm trying to help someone identify a restored steering wheel that he purchased for his 1938 Pontiac. It will not fit his car. I believe this is a 1937 Buick for a model with a horn button only, no horn ring. Can anyone confirm this?
  5. Thanks for your response. It may be a '37 Buick without horn ring as it's the wheel in the '37 brochure shown here. I'm also seeing this wheel listed as a '36 as well. Still searching for the answer.
  6. Thanks for looking everyone. I've identified it as a 1936 Buick steering wheel.
  7. Thanks for everyone's help. I've identified it as a 1936 Buick steering wheel.
  8. An individual I know has a recast steering wheel that he purchased as a 1938 Pontiac steering wheel. However, he says it doesn't fit his '38 station wagon. The vendor is no longer in business, so he can't question the vendor. Did Pontiac possibly use different size steering shafts on the 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder cars. I know Chrysler did during these years. Is this maybe not a Pontiac steering wheel?
  9. That's what the owner has, but he says it doesn't fit. Did Pontiac use different size steering shafts for 6 and 8 cylinder cars. I know Chrysler did for many years.
  10. A customer of mine has this steering wheel and needs to identify it. Thanks for your help.

  13. Bill, the way we determine the original color of a steering wheel is to break it down and get a core sample from the inside of the plastic, sand and polish the core sample and then do a color match to our color samples. All of these Roadmaster wheels were color cast and not painted. We have the mold and can recast it for you. Your wheel should match the steering column. Dave DandDAutomobilia.com
