    Default 83 GT steering wheel

    I have no pictures, but could somebody possibly post a picture of one?
    To me mine looks to have a BUICK symbol in the centre, Cruise Control and my car was a NO option car.

    So if anyone could post a pcitre of a 83 5.0 GT steering wheel, I would appreciate it.

    That is a GLX steering wheel (which I NEED badly!).

    UHG! That steering wheel brings back horrible nightmares! Once I recovered from the therapy sessions, I made the choice to switch to a grant carbon fiber wheel. It's a lot nicer!

    Sorry if I offended anyone who may like that wheel. :wink: I'm just trying to make myself laugh.

    Hmm, what all years is that steering wheel stock on? I believe that is the same one thats in my pace car and its all cracked to hell. I've been looking for a good one at the junk yards but haven't had any luck as of yet.

    Thats because your pace car did not have cruise control. I'm not sure what all years had your style steering wheel either though.

    Thanks for the help.
    To me it kind of looked like a Buick sign in the middle, Mine DOES have cruise control. that would explain the buttons on it ( I knew that though )

    I'm not sure exactly what years, but I believe that style wheel came in several different late seventies models including Pintos and earlier Mustangs (76, 77, 7. I know it came in a couple different styles, including painted and unpainted spokes.

    I think that wheel fits perfectly into the early fox mustangs.
