1928 chrysler 72 convertible coupe

31 LaSalle

Recommended Posts

the steering wheel in my 1928 chrysler 72 convertible coupe is in very poor condition

the horn button advance lever and throttle lever are all missing along with the responding parts

so i am thinking of fitting a wood rim wheel 

is this something that was fitted to chyslers of that period

what other cars steering wheel would fit 

it has a taper and one key

also can i use this car without advance and retard set up and throttle

i have moved the lights to a sperate switch

also would a wood wheel be easy to source and what would i expect to pay for a useable one

thank you in advance for your help

My 1928 Model 72 roadster has a Bakelite type wheel.  Jay may have a correct steering wheel for your car.  Hatties Garage, Bob Birchill has recast control levers for the center of the steering wheel.
