After marker steering wheel. Suggestions?
#1
I am considering replacing the stock steering wheel on my 71' Mach 1 to allow easier entering and exiting. Looking online it appears many people are unsatisfied with Grant steering wheels.
Could someone recommend other manufactures of steering wheels for our cars.

I use Grant and like it...so not too sure on other suggestions.

I have a Grant and I like it but I wish it had 3 or 4 inches of dish. I don't like reaching for the wheel.

Bright lime 72 Mach 1 with 351C 4V, with summit 600 carb(have a Holley too), Edelbrock dual-plane manifold, Hooker headers, 3 inch exhaust with flowmasters, 17 inch Eleanor wheels, FMX tranny, A/C, P/S, front disks and 350 rear gear. Drive it to work every day.

What do you plan on doing with the OEM one?Wink I have a GT grant but I like the OEM a lot, too.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, you sure as Hell don't have time to do it right the second time.

I have a Grant GT Classic (with black foam grip). Mine is the stock 15" size, but they also have a 13" size (which there always seems to be one for sale at just about every auto parts store I've ever seen).

I got mine from NPD (came with the horn button), but if you go that route, make sure to get the mounting kit as well (a separate item and quite necessary).

I also have a Grant GT Challenger on my Jeep (13") and love it... had one on my '82 Mustang as well. It has just enough 'classic' design mixed with modern flair to still be a viable styling point in any car, IMHO. I had originally thought about going with another Challenger wheel, but since I'm sticking with "old school, period-correct restomod" theme, I simply HAD to go with the Classic. This pic's from Summit Racing's site, but you get the idea:

Billet Specialties makes a adaptor that fit our cars with their steering wheels. But they are expensive but they look cool. They can easy cost 500-600$, but that depends on what options you choose. I think Flaming River have something to.

I think the Grant steering wheels are good enought, they don't cost to much and there are so many different cool styles to choose from Smile

We went with the GT Performance wood/ aluminum unit- Love it. Looks awesome, great fit and finish. My wife's first comment when seeing the new interior was "wow, that steering wheel rocks!". My son is now looking to match the door panels to the wood in the wheel to tie it all together. Gonna be cool!

Had to mention this:

Just wait until you slide into a 2015 Mustang (with stock seats, not Recaros, no less). It'll make the '71-73s feel like a piece of cake.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:
Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.
Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
Rule #3: Buy from trustworthy people: Fellow forum members. Visit 7173Mustang's For Sale forum.

Wow, great looking wheel. I would have gone with it if I saw it first, but ended up with a grant wheel. It's nice, but not as nice as yours.
