Out foraging for T parts and came across this steering wheel , it is aluminum laminated into the wood and has a black rubber stopper / button in the middle , does anyone know what kind of car it's from ?
It doesn't look much like a car steering wheel to me. Maybe some sort of control wheel for a piece of machinery?
A lot of cars used steering wheels very similar to that in the mid '10s to early '20s. So many so similar that I wouldn't even know what to guess!
Maybe , I don't know , it was in a shed on an old farm with a 1922 motor/transmission that I bought , although it's not for a model T , the wooden wheel makes it seem like it would go on something that would be inside or enclosed . I'm hoping somebody here would have an idea .
They make good racer steering wheels.Wrap the outside with clothesline rope and they are easier to grip.
Could it be the same as this Dodge Brothers?
Yep , that's it , thanks guys , appreciate it
that looks very much like a mid 20's Dodge Brothers steering wheel and horn button ...always an optimist...gene french
I think it goes beyond 'looks like' a Dodge, the AACA thread referenced above even gives a matching part number.
Polished up it would look neat on a speedster.
It would also look neat on a Dodge! But you're right, properly wrapped with cotton cord it would look great on a speedster!
