Here is some stuff I found on the forum.

Dane's Steering Wheel:

I believe the original was a 12" wheel. That is what I bought with the leather wrap. I have to custom make my adapter as I could not find anything avail. for my application. Looking forward to the challenge.

I have looked all over for something close made in the USA and found the 1979 corvette steering wheel is about as close as there is. But, still not as good as the Mountney


Big Wave Dave's Steering Wheel:

Nitro's Info:

Courtesy of Super Dave, back side of Mountny Wheel. I think the wheel size is 13in. not 12in. 14 in seems to be to big compared to gauges.

I was going to add that I haven't seen Jack's collection

Seriously, the 12" Mountney has to be the one. Don't seem to make this style in a 13" wheel.

Please note the spelling MOUNTNEY.

Thanks for jumping in, Mr. A. I searched through a bunch of threads to find these pics and info (I don't know half this crap off the top of my head)..... I got tired before I found Jack's massive collection. If someone wants to pull up the images, let's see em!

Justin,
I bought the 12" Mountney about 2 years back. I got a rep who used to send me Italian parts from the UK. She talked to her distributor and they actually made the same wheel in a 13" until 1995. (Now completely discontinued). She called every retailer in Europe to find me one sitting on a dusty shelf... NO LUCK. They still carry all of the hubs and accessories as they fit the new wheels. The original mount was reportedly a Mountney hub for a Holden (UK GM), so it fit on the American GM column. That's probably the wheel everyone is looking for. I have a vendor who will build one, but he's pricey. I'm going to try my 12" for a while.
