Sparco not only supplied the seats for the tumbler, but the steering wheel as well. I have seen this same steering wheel in a few interior shots.

[color=#000000]In dealing with the re-creation of the Tumbler I’m assembling a sort of miscellaneous parts list. With all the information presented on the various topic forums, parts and specs are spaced out all over the place. The intention of this forum is to collect all this info and present it here. Even though most of the Tumbler is custom made, a great deal of these parts are outsourced. This is a list that I will be updating that includes those parts and/or an equal equivalent. Some are of the obvious nature and some only possible through hi-res pictures. I welcome anyone with knowledge to help this list grow and assemble this parts list. Please PM me with any info on parts.

Confirmed (by one of the builder's ) That this is the company that manufactured the vdrive used on the Tumbler.

Ok I've got a most important part of the tumbler that's kicking my butt. The steering knuckles. Best I can tell from what I've seen they are zero camber and appear to be similar to those used on a straight axle vehicle rather than that of an independent suspension truck. Now given that we believe the front wheels are Chevy bolt pattern, I'm placing my money on the creators using 1962 or older steer knuckles. Also, this wouldn't be a part robbed from a scrap yard because they are running disc brakes, a feature Chevrolet didn't introduce until a few years later. So, again theory, they used conversion spindles from '62 or older for disc brakes.

I cannot seem to locate this correct screen used part and its KILLING ME. Any clues guys? I would really appreciate a team effort on this one.

has anyone ever looked into doing the hand throttle like in the movie.  i'm assuming that the actual cars had a pedal, but i think driving using a your hand for acceleration would be awesome in this thing..

It would be really easy to hook up.. basically attach the throttle cable to the bottom of the handle. Similar to hand controls for handicap drivers.
